Welcome to Israel

Beautiful Lewan and her mother arrived at Ben Gurion airport early this morning along with two other families from Kurdistan.

Lewan is eleven years old and no stranger to the world of hospitals and medicine, as she had surgery to repair a VSD when she was three. Now she’s having some trouble and needs further intervention to repair the VSD again.

It was a long night and an early morning for Lewan, but she was eager to meet everyone and take selfies with us. Her mother told me proudly that Lewan is very smart, and she’s definitely right. We’re looking forward to getting to know both of these sweet ladies in the coming days as we wait for Lewan’s first echo at Sheba next week.
