Discharged for now to Jaffa
Onaees had a quick stay in Sheba hospital after his catheterization; he was discharged this afternoon.
As Onaees’s mother got him ready to go, she repeated, “Onaees, we are going home!” Although this isn’t ‘home’ in the way Kurdistan is to them, I was encouraged that she would think of our home as hers while she is here. I pray she finds it a place of security and love.
We are really happy for her as she received the wonderful news that her son will be able to have the Glenn procedure in the coming weeks. Please pray for both of them as they wait.
Onaees had a diagnostic catheterization today at Sheba Medical Center, which found him to be suitable for surgery. During the cath, Onaees’s mother was very worried. She cried when we arrived to the waiting room, but co-worker Alena was able to console her. It showed me how important and helpful our work is. Our visits change these mothers and often lifts their sadness.
Onaees is in the ICU now and his condition is well. I was impressed about the caring and effort of the doctors and nurses in the ICU. As soon as Onaees arrived there, about six hospital staff members came together in his room to talk about him, his condition and the next steps. Please pray for a good surgery, and the worries of his mother about her child to be abated. How blessed to know, that God is in control.
