First of all I will ask you to pray for strength and patience for Wareen’s father, because they will need to be at the hospital for 14 more days under an antibiotic treatment.

Her dad speaks basic English but I was able to translate from English to his heart language, Kurdish, and give him some words of encouragement.

But in the middle of the long waiting there is hope and healing. The staff did a new blood culture and the result was negative which means that the treatment is working!

Her general condition is stable but she is still on oxygen. Hopefully soon the surgeons will be able to decide when to perform her operation.
