Salwa’s first assessment

Three month old Salwa had quite an intense day at Sheba hospital today. The day included an echo, blood test, and an X-ray. First assessments are always important, but this was especially true for Salwa today because she is past the age that is optimal to repair d-TGA, her diagnosis. After viewing the echo, the cardiologist was hopeful that despite her age, it is possible she will need only one surgery instead of two. Her mother was obviously joyful at this news and said “Inshallah,” or God willing. Because this family has been in quarantine since arriving, this is the first extended period of time we’ve spent together and although there was a lot to do today for Salwa, her mother was wonderful through it all. Please pray for this precious girl.
