We have a lot to thank our Father for on behalf of Mateen! Today his beautiful mother got to discuss her son’s second surgery with the doctor. It was a funny scene of the doctor speaking to a nurse in Hebrew, and the nurse then translated to Arabic for Mateen’s father who was on the phone in Kurdistan. But thankfully both father and mother got to hear the good news!! Mateen’s valve repair was successful, so much so that he was extubated a few hours after that conversation. Mateen’s mother was so joyful after she got the news. Thank you Jesus for your restorative power and for the life of this precious boy.
