Successful surgery, on ECMO

Today, the little Karim entered into heart surgery at Sheba Medical Center. The doctors confirmed many times that he is a difficult case and that his journey is going to be long and difficult. They couldn’t say how long Karim’s surgery would be. It was eight hours in the end, but it was successful.

Doctors were able to fix the problems they set out to repair. Now Karim’s heart is weak from the procedure and he has been immediately connected to an ECMO machine.

He is in a dangerous and difficult condition now. His blood pressure and his saturation are low. Your prayers for Karim are much appreciated and needed.
