The day of patience

When I arrived at Sheba Hospital today, Hur’s aunt was already sitting in the waiting room, the place to sit during her niece’s surgery.

We had a good waiting time, and every now and then there were more Gaza grandmothers showing up to sit with Hur’s aunt.

After five and a half hours, the surgeon came out and told us that the surgery went without complications and that they could do a full repair. We only had to wait another hour for the chest closure. But this hour turned out to be three hours, due to a bleeding in the chest. Hur’s aunt was worried, but thank God, Hur is stable now and the chest is closed.

Please pray for the coming 48 hours, which will decide if Hur is recovering well from the surgery.
