Lia and her mum have a lovely relationship, and it was clear that her mum is both worried about Lia’s condition, and an expert in keeping her baby happy.
The doctor said that Lia first needs to have a catheterisation to check the pulmonary pressure before a decision can be made about her suitability for surgery, so we will wait for this to be scheduled.
Lia was collected today at the Jordanian border crossing along with another four Kurdish families. We’re so happy to have them here with us. Lia will be two years old this week.
She traveled here with her grandmother while her mother and father in Kurdistan are caring for her five other siblings. Her grandmother’s phone has pictures primarily of their family stored in it. She proudly showed us each of her grandchildren, especially dressed up for Newroz, the Kurdish new year which was a few weeks ago. Please pray for them both as they adjust to Israel and begin treatment at Sheba hospital!
