Before Taman and his mum left to go to the hospital yesterday evening, the whole team had prayed for his surgery. I have never seen a mum crying so much before the surgery even happened. I think she was just really scared. So when Suhail and I were on our way to the hospital this morning, I prayed again for peace for Taman’s mum. As we arrived, Taman was already out of surgery, lying motionless in his bed. He was still under sedation and looked quite peaceful.
The nurse was just great, as he explained in detail to Taman’s mum and uncle what all of the tubes are for, what medication he is receiving and so on. He also said that the surgeons didn’t do a minimal invasion as planned, because the bypass would be easier during an open heart surgery. Besides he added that everything (Taman’s temperature, his lungs, his blood pressure…) was perfect. I think tomorrow we will know more about his condition. Many thanks to everyone who prayed for Taman’s healing!
The mum told me that she was alright yet she looked really tired and worried as she was sitting next to her boy’s bed, her eyes fixed on him, waiting for him to wake up. Please keep her in your prayers, she needs strength!
Getting Ready for a New Heart
After Shabbat we took our sweet Taman and his mom to the hospital to be admitted for surgery tomorrow. Mom was crying; she was so sad because her little boy is going to have a big procedure. So just before leaving home we prayed for them. He is going to be the first surgery tomorrow.
On our way to the hospital Taman was happy and singing with us. When we arrived, his uncle was waiting for us. He wanted to be here to translate to the mother. I went to get the stickers to the emergency room and finally we went to the ICU. One room was waiting for him. Thanks to the Lord the uncle made sure that the mother understood everything.
They performed blood test. In the beginning he cried a little bit but after he was happy and showed me his cannula. He is such a brave boy. Please pray for this beautiful boy, for a successful surgery and strength for his family.
Taman is a such handsome, smart and lovely boy. Today he had his first assessment in the hospital. It was a long day for him, but he was very happy because they were going to take many pictures of his heart! Thanks to the lord his uncle arrived today and he could translate everything to mom.
They made three echos, and two doctors spoke with mom and his uncle, they explained everything and answered every question that they had. Taman was in a good mood all the time but in his last echo he fell asleep. Yesterday he was upset with me because I took some swabs and I promised him to give an ice cream. So while we waiting for the second doctor, he ate his ice cream and he was really happy about that. Finally the doctors came and they told us that they confirmed his diagnosis. They told his mom that his problem can be fixed through open heart surgery or maybe could be done with a catheterisation.
So Taman’s parents need to decide which option they would like. If a cath isn’t successful, then he could then have a surgery. Mom and uncle were happy to hear these possibilities and also that the doctor took the time to explain everything to them. Please pray for wisdom for his parents to decide the best plan for this wonderful boy.
