Welcome Yazan

Our new emergency baby Yazan from the West Bank arrived today together with his loving mother at Sheba Medical Center. Since doctors in the ICU were pretty busy, Yazan didn’t have an echo yet, so there’s no clarity as to what problem his heart has exactly. For the next days, Yazan will first have a few tests to examine his heart properly and start the right treatment. For now he is stable and on the ventilator.

I had a lovely time with Yazan’s mother, meeting her for the first time and getting to know her. She told me about her family and her other four children. I’m sure we as volunteers will get to know her even better in the next weeks.

Hopefully doctors will get a better picture of what his heart exactly looks like and begin his treatment soon. Please pray for Yazan and his family, as a hard journey begins for them.
