Today our beautiful Saya had her first echo after her surgery. She cried a lot when they did her echo and checked her oxygen saturation. But, when we were waiting for her report she really enjoyed the games in the waiting room. We also had fun painting together. Mom was a little anxious but she was also very patient and in a good mood. Finally, the doctor called us and told us that the surgery was successful. However, she has a decrease in her ‘ejection fraction’. But the doctor is not so concerned about that so he simply made some changes in her medication. Consequently, she will have her follow up next week. Please pray that this little girl will be completely healed in her heart and that she can soon go back at home.
Saya had to go to the hospital today for a blood test, following her discharge from hospital. She is such a quiet and sweet girl. She had no complaints about getting into the car seat and was peaceful throughout the whole day. Her blood test was quick and we will know the results in the coming few days.
Her mum is so lovely and patient. She is interested to know about whether Saya would need another surgery after this one also.
Thank God for this family and pray that Saya’s body is healing well.
I saw Saya and her mum today, in secondary ICU, only a few days after she had a surgery. The staff in the hospital say she is doing so well after a successful surgery, and she certainly is looking good.
Mum was in a great mood, and so happy that Saya is doing well. She asked after all the other families, and was especially pleased to hear about Mina’s recovery, as they traveled together.
Please pray for Saya to continue to improve each day, and hopefully we will see her back home soon.
Today our beautiful Saya had her surgery. when I entered her room very early in the morning the medical team was preparing everything to take her to the surgery room, Saya cried and her sweet mother tried to calm her and finally they took her. I stayed with her mom who is amazing and sweet. In the beginning she did not understand what was happening and she was a little bit scared. We stayed for about five hours with her until finally the doctor came out and told us that her surgery was a success. They did an echo which showed that everything had gone as expected. Mom was very happy. Although we do not speak the same verbal language, the language of love, laughter and hope was enough. She was very quiet during the waiting time, she would sometimes go into a sea of tears and then looked at me with a smile. I tried a thousand things to distract her and help make the wait more pleasant. Thank God we had a beautiful time together.
Saya finally came out of the surgery room and mom was very happy. If everything goes well she can be extubated later today. Please continue to pray for this beautiful little girl, for her quick recovery, and for strength for her beautiful mother at this time.
