Third and final surgery

Today marked a very special day; this was Omar’s third and hopefully final surgery of his young life.

When I first came to Sheba through Shevet three years ago I met Omar who was then a months old baby who underwent the Glenn operation. He had his previous first surgery when he was around one week old. So today was, God willing, the last chapter in his surgical saga. The procedure had some risks which the surgeon told his mother, but he came out stable and the surgery didn’t have any complications.

It was profoundly meaningful to know Omar and his mother from years ago, and watch him grow up, coming out for catheterizations and check ups, and now through his final surgery.

Please be praying for this wonderful boy as he recovers. What a joy it is to have reached this point.
