Moshe and I visited our little friend Samir today in the secondary ICU.
He was not his usual happy self. Perhaps if he could express himself as we adults are able he might have said that he felt like a caged lion, trapped in a small space, unable to prowl around and pounce on any toy he could find, and enjoy every moment of that play.
Samir’s sweet mother watches over him as a hen watches over her chicks with a loving patience. She worries so much about Samir. It was still unknown today when Samir’s next surgery would happen. Perhaps tomorrow? The nurse reported that the medical team had discovered an anomaly but it is not yet disclosed exactly what. We pray that surgery happens sooner rather than later if it is to happen, or that God’s loving hand just reaches into Samir’s little heart and rectifies what is not right.
