Safely at Sheba after a difficult way

This morning we heard the good news that Sheba Hospital finally agreed to accept little Ayub from Gaza, a new emergency baby.

His journey to Israel today was quite exciting, as in the middle of the way from the border to Sheba, the machine pumping life-saving medicine to Ayub, stopped working.

The ambulance had to make a quick stop at the Assuta hospital in Ashdod where they fixed the problem before they could continue their way to Sheba.

Early this afternoon we could finally welcome him and his lovely mother in the ICU at Sheba Medical. The doctors directly started with some examinations including blood tests and an echo and in the next days they will make a surgery plan for him.

We hope that Ayub will have his surgery very soon as he has transposition of the great arteries and needs surgery very early in his life.

His mom is very cute and kind but was also very tired after this day as they have been in three different hospitals today.

Please pray for our new little boy and his lovely mother!
