Further in her future, Maryam may need another surgery, but this depends on the success of this surgery and how she is recovering after it. So please pray for a good recovery for little Maryam and for strength for her grandmother!
There isn’t an easy solution for her; the surgery will be dangerous for her. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors, that they will know what to do best in this surgery and how to help Maryam in the best way possible.
Her sweet grandmother is happy to be with her, though it’s very hard for her to see her beloved granddaughter like this. Hopefully the doctors will meet on Sunday to discuss the next steps for her.
Please pray that they will find a good solution for beautiful little Maryam.
Little Maryam is still in the pediatric ICU of Sheba Medical, where she was moved a few days ago because her condition worsened and she had to be intubated. Today she had an ECHO and will be having a diagnostic catheterization tomorrow.
Also today, her escort switched out and Maryam’s grandmother will be with her from today on. When we visited Maryam, her mother was really worried about her and about her being in the normal ICU now. Please pray that her mom can have peace leaving her daughter with her grandmother in the hospital. We also hope and pray for the doctors to have wisdom on how to treat Maryam effectively.
Little Maryam and her lovely mother are still in the Secondary Pediatric ICU of Sheba Medical. Her doctor told me today the disappointing news that she is still not gaining weight. They are giving her everything they can and feeding her via tube, but she is not improving.
Please pray for our Maryam and her mother!
Today Maryam’s mum wasn’t feeling well, so we had to go to the Ob-Gyn emergency department. She is 14 weeks pregnant and had a side pain on her belly and was very worried about the baby.
The medical staff was so kind to her, that they even looked for an Arabic-speaking doctor. He told her that everything is normal and that the baby is doing fine. Maryam’s mom was then relaxed and not worried anymore about her baby.
Regarding Maryam herself, there isn’t any news. She still has to grow and gain more weight to proceed with the next steps.
Little Maryam is our latest urgent arrival from Gaza. She’s six months old but due to her heart defect has been slipping backwards in recent weeks; her weight was just 2.7 kg (less than 6 pounds) when she arrived in Israel on Friday.
Let us pray for this tiny little girl and her sweet mother!
On Friday, six month old Maryam W. from Gaza, arrived to Sheba Hospital via ambulance. She needs an AV canal repair surgery, but before a surgery can take place, the doctors need Maryam to get bigger and stronger.
Maryam is such a little precious baby and looked really cute sleeping during our first visit, while we talked to her mom. Please pray for her to gain some weight and for the doctors, that they would have extra wisdom for this case, and will have a surgery date soon.
