Slowly, slowly

After getting the chest drain yesterday, Niyan is continuing to slowly improve in Sheba Hospital’s Pediatric ICU. Her oxygen saturations are stable in the upper 80s now even though they are reducing support. Her dad is definitely relieved and waited a long time with us today as we waited for the surgery of a little baby from Gaza. It’s beautiful to see how he is somehow a part of the group there even though he is the only man and the only one who doesn’t speak Arabic.

Later in the evening when I walked again to the ICU, Niyan’s dad told me with a smile on his face, that Niyan received milk through an NG tube now. Thank you God that Niyan is better! Please give her strength to recover completely and we will get our joyful energetic little sister back!
