Welcome to Israel

Eliyas and his father travelled to Israel with four other Kurdish families, arriving last night. He is almost 2 months old, and has a diagnosis of dextra-Transposition of the Great Arteries (D-TGA). Thankfully he has already had a catheterisation in Kurdistan, which made a small hole in his heart helping him to have more oxygen around his body. However, his oxygen levels are still fairly low; his dad says sometimes in Kurdistan it can be 65%! He needed to have oxygen on the flight, but thankfully by the time he arrived with us last night, his oxygen levels had stabilised and they were both able to rest well. Eliyas will have his first appointment at the hospital on Thursday.
