Three months a mother

Ayan’s mother sent photographs today to excitedly mark his “3rd month birthday!” Although probably it’s not the third month celebration any new mother would ever be imagining. Nevertheless, Ayan’s mother is delighted that he turned three months old despite a prognosis when he was born that looked to be so bad.

Ayan’s mum has been his mother for three months. I asked if she misses holding him, as he remains with his chest open in the ICU, to which she replied yes. But she pointed out the chair next to his bed, and said that she sometimes sits on that chair and holds onto his little foot.

Ayan’s condition remains the same; we continue to pray and wait for the next surgery.
