Two successful procedures today

In order to begin to repair Hassanein’s heart, which has five heart defects, he needed to undergo a procedure at Sheba hospital which was a combination of a catheterization to place a stent in his heart, and a surgery to do a pulmonary artery banding.

After his surgery, he was transferred to the cardiac ICU instead of the neonatal ward he was in before surgery. His grandma was extremely happy and optimistic about the operation. She kept in contact with Hassanein’s mother in Gaza who was anxiously waiting for news of her boy.

Please be praying especially that Hassanein will grow, as he is still just over a kilo at three months old, and that no problems develop in his recovery.
