There are always ups and downs

Today I found Jude successfully breathing on his own for the first time after his surgery at Hadassah Hospital. Nonetheless his mother was in tears following a cyanotic episode this morning, and the result of an echo which then showed there is some leakage from his heart valve that was repaired during his surgery.

I reassured her there are always ups and downs following surgery, and that it is the Lord who reigns over all things, and that we can thank him in good times and bad (our Muslim neighbors firmly believe this). Please join in our prayer for healing for Jude, and peace for his mother.
