Mir went to the hospital today to have some stitches removed in his abdomen. It is a joy to be able to write something which seems so trivial in comparison to the emotional reports we have been bringing over the last few weeks during his stay in the hospital. Praise God that he really has reached out his hand and redeemed Mir, and sustained his life. Praise the name of Jesus, our salvation, he is a rock and a fortress for Mir, and he has given strength and so much joy for his mum. Mir has an echo coming up this week, so pray that God will continue to pour out his mercy and healing over Mir.
Today when I visited Mir, I was so happy to be able to hold him in my arms again. I had not seen him for a week–what a relief to see his improvement. His eyes are following objects, he can grab things and he has a good holding grip. His cries are less intensive and Mom can comfort him. It’s a miracle to see how God has touched his body.
There are still some concerns and we would value your prayers for it. Mir has a necrotic spot on his tummy where he had an draining tube in. They are cleaning and dressing it daily. Mom is concerned about it. He has a stenosis in the upper vein what cause some swelling in his head. They haven’t decided yet what to do about this. We pray that no surgical intervention is needed but that God will do a miracle to loosen up the upper vein.
Mom was happy to see us. She is so committed to look after her special boy. Her loving touch will improve his healing process.
As always, it was so lovely to see Mir’s mum today in the hospital. They are now in the secondary ICU, and Mir is looking beautiful, with just a nasal canula across his little face. They tried switching the oxygen support off today. And also, praise God, he had all of his chest drains removed. Mum and I sat outside the ward waiting, and she showed me some photos of Mir with so many tubes from this last surgery. They have really been through a lot over these past two weeks. She also showed me some photos of Mir’s brothers who are 7 and 4, and her husband. They look like such a lovely family.
Mir is still quite drowsy, and today he was somewhere in the middle of asleep and awake. Please pray for his continued recovery and strength for him and mum.
