This morning when coworker Amelie and I entered Sheba hospital, we found Ahmed’s mom crying in front of the elevator. We comforted her and went with her to Ahmed’s room, where the nurse was taking care of him.

Ahmed still has a lot of problems with breathing, so today Ahmed was re-intubated. Doctors ordered an X-ray for Ahmed to determine the  trouble with his  breathing. Probably Ahmed’s diaphragm is too weak, which means that his abdominal muscles don’t work with him when he breathes. So he might need a small surgery to strengthen his diaphragm.

Hopefully when this is fixed, he will be able to breath on his own again. We ask for your prayers for Ahmed and also for his mother, who is very worried.
