A great day for Rimas today at Sheba. A good echo showed that the work on Rimas’s heart has been a success and she can niw return to Kurdistan.
Praise God, this little girl has really made a miraculous recovery since her time post surgery. After being told that neurologically Rimas would never be the same again as she was pre-surgery, God has continued to show that He is above and beyond our worldly view of health. He has the final say. Rimas has transformed from the shaking, very distressed little girl unable to eat and drink independently or speak properly after her surgery. Now she is playing all of the time, using what seems like more language than before her surgery (including new English vocabulary) and going out of her way to be kind to the other children at Shevet. She is just a treasure.
Praise God for His good works in Rimas’s life.
Our trip to the hospital led us to the 1st floor where Rimas got a blood test that will check her electrolytes. Although she didn’t like it a lot, she did a really great job and was finished quite quickly. Afterwards we waited for her echo that was also really good. Thank God she doesn’t have any fluid around her heart which is often the case.
Her mum was really happy about it, because if her next echo shows good results she will be able to go back to Kurdistan. Please pray that she will still have a good time at Shevet before she leaves and that God will surround her and touch her heart.
Sophie and I collected Rimas and her mum after Shabbat from the hospital. Rimas looked beautiful and was wearing a sparkly pink hat ready for the cool air outside.
Praise God, Rimas had a much better than usual car journey; she didn’t cry, and cuddled into her mum. Thank God, because it’s always so horrible to see how distressed she has usually been in the car.
Rimas and her mum were welcomed back home, Rimas remembered which was her room, which she shares with Noora.
Please pray for her to continue to heal, and for her to be filled with the spirit of peace.
Rimas seemed to be doing very well following her pacemaker surgery. She was already extubated and started to talk and to act more like herself. Her mum was also quite confident and happy with her condition. She walked around and had some chats with the other moms that are in the hospital right now.
Please pray for Rimas that she will recover soon and that her mum will experience the love of God and receive strength and patience for the rest of the time in the hospital.
Today when we came to the ICU we were told that Rimas will have her pacemaker placed. After doing some visits and having Mina’s echo, we stayed with Rimas’ mom for the surgery. She was very patient but also tired. While waiting, she showed us some baby pictures of little Rimas and her family, which was really lovely. From time to time she was praying for her little daughter and we were praying as well.
After hours of waiting we finally got the good news: Rimas’ surgery went well and the pacemaker is working correctly. The doctor is pleased and said that she is stable now, but she will sleep until tomorrow. Then they will see what the next plans are. Please pray for a speedy recovery and healing for Rimas and for strength for her mother.
