Since Mohammed was taken off ECMO yesterday, he has remained “stable,” and a tiny bit better. The doctor reminded us that Mohammed is still not in a good condition, with a lot of support from medicines, ventilation, the external pacemaker and with his chest open. These issues need to resolve, and will take some time.
Mohammed’s mother said, as always “Al Hamdulilah,” Arabic for ‘Praise God,’ and expressed that as long as he was either stable or improving, even a little bit, she was pleased. She is content to visit him occasionally, and not feeling the need to enter his room too often due to the risk of infection.
We ate a nice lunch together at Sheba hospital, so these difficult days truly are brightened by simple things, such as good friendship.
Please keep praying for Mohammed.
