Zaed’s joyous discharge from hospital

When co-worker Margarita and I came to the Hadassah ICU today, we received the good news from a smiling nurse that Zaed had been moved to another floor because of his progress.

When we found the right place, we had to wait a while because they were in the process of an Echo for him. When was rolled back in his mobile crib, it was such a relief to see him again. It was hard to think it was the same baby we had visited a while ago. My innermost rejoiced over this adorable boy.  A few hours later, he was released from the hospital.

The doctor said that Zaed has a new appointment in September to check up how he is doing. Those tests will decide if he needs more treatments. But right now, he is going back to Gaza to be in quarantine for three weeks.

I thank God for Zaed’s improvement, and for all the love he has received through the marvellous medical staff. They are doing a wonderful job with all these sick children, and Zaed is one of them. Please continue to carry him and his family in prayer, and remember to lift up in prayer all the staff in the hospital also.
