Today was the hearing test for Karwan. His mother is very funny and protective; she even wanted to go inside the soundproof room where the speech therapist had to seat Karwan for the test. It was a lovely time with two speech therapist students because I had to write down 10 words in Kurdish so Karwan could repeat them. They were so amazed to meet Kurdish people for the first time. And yes, Karwan’s right ear can hear just about 60 decibels, which is very poor. Now we are waiting for his cardiologist to see what is the next step in this long journey. Thank you again for your prayers!
Karwan had his appointment at the kidney clinic today. We had to take his blood pressure and it was so high. The physician requested an ultrasound and other tests.
Karwan was waiting for the ultrasound when he had another bout of severe chest pain. The team is giving him an ECG and emergency echo now. Please pray for his pain and that God guide the doctors to find the cause this time!
Karwan has seen the specialist. His pain is not heart related. He will soon have an ultrasound of the kidney to give the medical team more information to determine his treatment. Thanks for praying.
