Beautiful Maryam was admitted to Sheba Medical Center today! She had a CT scan and will stay over night for her catheterization tomorrow.
She is very bright. She knows she only travels in the car when her destination is the hospital, so she understood where we were immediately. As she wept, her mum was the best comforter, always steady and calm for Maryam.
When we got to the hospital, she immediately went to their children’s play area. As she explored, I remarked to her mum that she is very intelligent, to which her mum replied, she knows she is!
After this, Maryam asked her mom for a purple balloon, which she dutifully received, and then grasped as we walked to her room in the secondary ICU. The nurses were so welcoming and kind to her. Two of them were Arabic-speaking and could communicate with her mother.
We said goodbye to each other before I left both of them! They are in such good care at Sheba hospital. Please pray for Maryam and her sweet mum!
Maryam's first visit to Sheba Hospital
For our new Kurdish princess, the first assessment was scheduled today. She hadn’t expected it when her mom woke her up in the morning. I think she sensed that something different was happening today be- cause she cried all of the way to Sheba Medical Center. She was so excited and scared that she ‘cast up her accounts’ in the car ride there.
But when we arrived, we were able to distract her with playing and the fear was gone. Thank you God, for calming her down! She mastered her first tests brilliantly. At first she will need a CT or a catheterization. The doctors are discussing about this and we will wait for the next appointment.
