Today a new emergency transfer baby from Gaza arrived at Sheba Hospital. The few-days-old girl suffers from hypoplastic left heart syndrome and is accompanied by her lovely mother and her father who works in Israel.
Because of the severity of her disease, Asil will need three big surgeries in the course of the next few years. While I visited her, she was still extubated but the doctors intubated her a little bit later to make sure that her oxygen-levels stay stable.
Her parents are very grateful for our work and told us several times that they want to thank us and everyone involved in the treatment of their daughter. Please pray for them and pray for a good treatment for Asil’s severe heart defect.
