Our prayer is that soon Saif will be weaned off mechanical ventilation and be able to breathe on his own and for courage and strength for his mother.
Please continue to pray for Saif and specifically for his lungs. Almost all of his life he has been supported by mechanical ventilation, and it is difficult for him to now be free of this support.
We praise God for sustaining Saif’s life. We praise God because he supplies our every breath and because he is the reason for life.
It was a pleasure to finally meet his mother today, sharing the company of some of the other mothers who have unwell babies in intensive care. She is a caring and kind lady. Like the other in-hospital mothers around her, she is placing her trust in God for the healing and outcome for her precious son.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. Isaiah 26:3-4
Thank God for his safety so far.
The mother says that the surgery went well. Saif is currently in the intensive care unit. Please pray for the next critical 48 hours.
One-month-old Saif was rushed to the Sheba Medical Center in Israel late last night in an ICU ambulance, where surgeons will attempt surgery to switch his transposed great arteries back to their natural position. If successful this surgery can give Saif hope for a normal and healthy life.
