We were able to talk to his sister. Hamza still has some pain when moving and he cried while his clothing and bedding was being changed.
Soon after however, Hamza was soundly asleep. His grandmother seems pleased. She is a brave woman with her grandson.
Finally in early evening, the surgery team rolled out Hamza to take him to the Pediatric ICU department. We soon found out that the surgery had been successful and we could rejoice with grandmother. God is great and faithful. We will continue to pray for his recovery.
We brought Hamza to the hospital for his admission to the cardiac ICU because he will have a surgery tomorrow morning. He is supposed to have a pacemaker placed. Most children are afraid of the doctors or the tests they have to take before they can be admitted, but Hamza always has a smile on his face.
Join us in prayer for Hamza’s surgery tomorrow. We pray for strength for him and his family.
Today we welcomed a new boy named Hamza from Gaza as he had his first echo in Israel today. While waiting for his appointment and later on waiting for the doctor, I had a lot of fun with him and he often laughed. It was so great to see such a joyful child. He really lightened my day with laughing at every little thing and I am looking forward to the next months with him.
Afterwards the doctor said that they will decide on a surgery date after they have seen the results of the holter test. In his future surgery, Hamza will get a pacemaker as he has an electrical problem with his heart. He will stay with us in Ashdod together with his grandmother for the time being.
Join us in prayer for Hamza as well as for his doctors. We hope that his treatment can begin soon so that he can recover well.
