He has emerged victorious from his cath and has been discharged to Ashdod and is back with us in our community home, safe and sound.
Thank you for your prayers for this little guy.
I fouind Revand out of his cath and doing well! The doctors were able to dilate his pulmonary arteries and they expect this is all the treatment he needs for now.
Thank you so much for your prayers, they are greatly appreciated.
Our cute Revand is admitted to Sheba Hospital for a catheterization tomorrow. Revand’s mother waited long and patiently for this appointment, and today is the day! The catheterization is necessary for Revand’s heart-function to improve. If everything goes well, this is the last thing he needs before going back home.
Revand is discharged from Sheba Hospital to our house in Ashdod! I am so surprised he is already discharged. He went into surgery only five days ago. When Revand was admitted to the hospital, his oxygen level was in the 40’s. And now his heart looks perfect. He only has some fluid around his heart, which is treated with medication.
But we will like getting to know Revand now that he is in our house!
When I arrived in the cardiac ICU at Sheba today, I was surprised to be greeted by Revand’s mom smiling and waving from their new room in the intermediate ICU! Revand is already moved into the less intensive wing after making a great recovery after surgery on Thursday. He’s breathing completely on his own without any oxygen support, and by early afternoon, the assisting surgeon was arriving to remove his remaining chest drains.
After Revand’s intense first days at Sheba, it’s good to see him so healthy and happy now. Please pray for continued recovery for him.
Revand had his surgery at Sheba Hospital yesterday, starting at eight in the morning. His mother was calm and collected–nothing seems to faze or stress this strong woman, even when she’s surrounded by people who can’t speak her language.
The surgery lasted for just under six hours, and the doctors successfully performed a complete heart repair, praise God! His mother was joyful and overflowing with thankfulness. In the midst of a busy and complicated day, it was welcome news.
Now we wait for the next day or so to see how Revand holds up. Please pray with us that he will stay strong and have a complete recovery!
