Beautiful Shireen had many of her teeth extracted today, due to the risk of infection the subsequent danger of endocarditis (infection of her heart). The doctor recommended this to be done before her heart surgery because of her susceptibility to this condition.
The procedure took about three hours and after this she was taken to the ICU to be monitored. Her mother was initially shocked to hear that her daughter, who came to Israel for heart surgery, needed to have a tooth extraction as well and that these two things were connected. However, now that this is done, she is anticipating Shireen’s imminent heart surgery and taking wonderful care of her daughter as they wait.
Please pray for peace for both Shireen and her mum, and that we could be ministers of Christ’s love to her each day we visit them.
