Surgery planned

Ahmed has been in hospital for a long time now without much happening. He’s doing good but until now there hasn’t been any solution or treatment plan from the doctors. But today when I met Ahmed and his mother in the hallway, she was so happy and told me that he’s going to have surgery. A nurse confirmed that he will have a mitral valve repair. It’s not yet fully decided when it will be, but probably next week.

This is really good news and we are all glad that there’s finally something the mother can look forward to. She and Ahmed are often walking through the hallways of Sheba Hospital. Even so we as volunteers like them and are always happy to see them around, Ahmed is still crying almost every time he sees one of us. Hopefully his surgery will go well and he will recover well.
