It was so lovely to share with Jabali’s grandmother today that their time hospital had come to an end and Jabali could come home! Jabali’s grandmother instantly changed in her posture and facial expression and quickly started planning her shopping trip for gifts. It was so wonderful.
We are just amazed with our Heavenly Father in regards to Jabali’s healing. Having recently heard a report that Jabali was suspected to be blind it is now thought that his eyes are recovering and with some work at home his vision should get better and better. There is so much hope for this little boy now. In addition today Jabali had a very positive echo and the doctors feel he is ready to begin reducing his medications. For Jabali this may mean he only has a short stay with us at Shevet before returning to Kurdistan.
We are so pleased to now have him and Grandma home with us. Please pray that we are able to speak God’s truth and show God’s love in our time with these two. May they feel loved and welcome. Please also pray for Jabali’s continued healing.
Today when I went to visit to our beautiful Jabali in his room, the nurse told me that he was having a echo at the moment. So, immediately I went to the echo area. I saw the doctor that was checking on him. But I couldn’t go into that room because he was in isolation. So, I could not spend too much time with them. I only heard our little baby crying and his amazing grandmother trying to calm him down. I waited until the doctor finished with them.
The doctor told me that his heart looks good, and his medication was going to decrease, but he had infection still in his wound.
Please continue pray for his fast recovery and also strength for his grandma in this time far away from home.
Hopeful to Leave the Hospital
Today the doctors are hopeful for Jabali to soon be discharged in our care. He is weaned off oxygen and eating a little. Praise God! We are waiting for the cardiologist and neurologist to sign off on his discharge. His grandmother remains hopeful to be out of the hospital soon. Thank you for your prayers of recovery and wisdom for the doctors.
Today we went to visit our beautiful Jabali and it was a joy see some progress in this beautiful baby. He is eating, his oxygen is good, and also he is trying to have a little eye contact and was trying to smile. Grandma is so happy! She wishes to be home!
Today he was going to have an EEG but it wasn’t possible. Please pray for this beautiful baby and for his quick healing and also for strength for his amazing grandmother!
