Jana and myself took the mother of Mustafa, Sundus, to see her precious son in the adult ICU at Sheba Medical Center. Before we were allowed in to see Mustafa, my hands were cold. Dear Sundus, with such care and kindness, began to warm my hands; a beautiful act of caring for others though her heart was hurting so much.
It was the first time I have seen Mustafa after his operation, to see this fun-loving, young man lying there with tubes everywhere and eyes closed, was very hard to take in. You can imagine that for Sundus, to see her son still the same as when she saw him yesterday, it must have been heartbreaking. The very kind nurse caring for Mustafa said there is no change in his condition. The Doctors will come around tomorrow and may decide if Mustafa is to have another echo. It is very important to make sure Mustafa is not in any pain however, so they are proceeding with care.
As we sat in the waiting room, I truly could feel Sundus’s pain and deep sadness. I sat next to her, trying to bring some comfort. Co-worker Jana, who drove us to the hospital, gave Sundus a bar of chocolate which, after a little persuasion, she ate to our delight. Then the attending nurse called to Sundus that they had finished with the treatment. As only two visitors are allowed at one time, Jana went with Sundus.
With my heart I ask for prayer for healing for dear Mustafa and much prayer please for Sundus. We need to be carrying her as her legs are weak and her whole being is in such stress. I thank you.
