Recovering little by little

Ahmed went in to surgery at Sheba Medical Center this morning at around 8:30. Ahmed’s mother was quite worried, and we spent much of the time in silent anticipation.

Doctors were able to dilate an outflow tract, but there were a few complications during the surgery. The doctors said they would be monitoring Ahmed very closely during the post-surgery hours, and that his recovery would be slow but sure, from what they can tell.

Coworker Amelie and I were thankful during the waiting time for the company of the other mothers who also have children in the ICU. They came beside the mother of Ahmed and comforted her along with us.

Please be praying that Ahmed’s recovery would go well, and for strength and peace for his mother.
