His mother is worried and cried a bit when I left the hospital. I tried to encourage her saying,”El Ei Karim,” which means God is great. That helped to calm her down a bit.
She also knows it is best for Zhiir to have his surgery now when he is so young. Your prayers are much appreciated for this lovely boy and his mother. It is her first child.
Mr Zhiir had a CT scan today, which went ahead smoothly. Although it is technically a short procedure, it requires sedation and a cannula to start off with, which heightened the emotions of Zhiir’s mum. As she had to leave him in the CT scan room with the medical staff, she shed a few tears.
He recovered well afterwards and was brought up to the echo department by the cardiologist. The doctors were gathering more information to help decide if he will be suitable for the switch of his arteries in a one or two stage repair process. The doctors will decide after reviewing his scans from today, as we hope to hear soon.
