Thank you for your prayers for this little one.
All the Glory is for God.
He entered the surgery room at eight o’clock in the morning. Every hour medical staff were informing us that everything was fine and that Zaed was still in surgery . It was very extensive, but successful – thank God.
His mother was quite stressed, but thank the Lord, we were there to pray and support her. My colleague Ella arrived at noon to give her more support.
Pray for a speedy recovery.
This time Zaed was finally able to get an appointment for surgery, which has been scheduled for Tuesday.
The doctor will contact our Gaza coordinator Amar, for when Zaed’s next surgery will be.
Today the visit at Hadassah hospital was a bit long, Zaed entered his catheterization at 9 a.m. and was out at 11:30 a.m. Even his mother was a bit worried, but when she saw her child being brought out of the OR, her face changed .
After that, Zaed was under observation for two hours, and the anesthesiologist said there was no problem. The doctor also said that everything was fine, and his heart was working well, thank God.
This time Zaed was crying a lot. It seems that he was hungry during the exams. When he was able to have his bottle, he slept for a long time, and at the same time, the effect of the anesthesia was wearing off. Then he was taken to his room.
Zaed’s mom was very grateful that I could be with her throughout the process. I thank God for everything and for allowing me to serve.
Please keep praying for this little one, that his infection gets cleared so doctors can proceed with his catheterization. Zaed has come a long way since we first received him at only three days old, back in July of 2020. God has been faithful thus far, and He doesn’t change.
Today I went to Hadassah hospital to see Zaed. I got a little sad because I saw him very down, with a fever and not eating well. Because of these reasons, doctors have postponed his Catherization until Wednesday.
I was able to pray for Zaed and his Mom while there. Thank God the little baby became a bit calmer and was able to sleep.
Thanking God for this little boy and his mother.
Zaed’s doctor will ask for Zaed to return in two month’s time for a check-up.
A big day for Zaed today as he was discharged from the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem. After having had his emergency surgery last Wednesday, Co-worker Margarita wrote in that blog that his recovery was quick.
Praise God who has been faithful and who continued to bless little Zaed so that he could recover quickly, and go back to Gaza today.
When I came to pick him and his mother up to take them to the Gaza border crossing, there were two kind and helpful nurses who came with us to bring their bags to the car and to say goodbye.
Thanks for all your prayers and thanks to God who answered them!
However last night, we received a notification that Zaed was bleeding and needed to go back to surgery at midnight. Today, I was visiting them again and he is recovering very well. I had the opportunity to talk to his doctor who said baby Zaed is showing a fast recovery, thank the Lord.
So I got together with Zaed’s mom and the baby, praising God for His goodness! I am grateful to God for allowing me to be a part of this process, and for opening the heart of Zaed’s mom who let me pray for her.
Zaed entered the surgery room at 8 AM and the surgery started at 11 AM. Every hour they came out to report that everything is fine thanks to the Lord. The mother after waiting so long was worried. I prayed with her and she told me she is very grateful for being by her side, and supporting her. We know and I always tell her that all the glory and honor is for the Lord. And two hours later Zaed was back with us in the ICU!
When we found the right place, we had to wait a while because they were in the process of an Echo for him. When was rolled back in his mobile crib, it was such a relief to see him again. It was hard to think it was the same baby we had visited a while ago. My innermost rejoiced over this adorable boy. A few hours later, he was released from the hospital.
The doctor said that Zaed has a new appointment in September to check up how he is doing. Those tests will decide if he needs more treatments. But right now, he is going back to Gaza to be in quarantine for three weeks.
I thank God for Zaed’s improvement, and for all the love he has received through the marvellous medical staff. They are doing a wonderful job with all these sick children, and Zaed is one of them. Please continue to carry him and his family in prayer, and remember to lift up in prayer all the staff in the hospital also.
Our coworker Yousef today found Zaed recovering well from his surgery. Prof. Erez, the surgeon, told us that the result of the surgery is excellent, thank God.
Zaed is a little boy who entered our world from Gaza just a couple of days ago. He is now safely hospitalized at Hadassah. This whole process and possibility just fills me with gratitude, because he is so precious in the eyes of God.
The doctors are checking his fragile little body carefully to be sure they will give him the right treatment. His young mother seemed to be in a good mood, but very tired. Please lift up little baby Zaed in your prayers, and also his family.
It seems that Zaed has a very complicated heart and possibly even problems in his lungs as well. The doctors are planning to do more tests in the coming days to get a full picture and understanding of which surgery would be best for this little boy. Please also pray for his family as they have another young one at home and the mother has just recently given birth and is now sitting in the hospital by her son’s side.
We are so thankful for the Lord fighting these battles for precious Zaed and we know He has wonderful plans in place for him. Please join with us in prayer for the doctors to have wisdom as they look at the best plan of care for Zaed.
