Hassanein is still recovering in Sheba hospital from his surgery and catheterization yesterday. Doctors couldn’t give us more information and we have to be patient to see how Hassanein’s health status develops.
When I saw Hassanein laying in the room in the ICU, I was impressed again by the ability of the doctors to do a surgery with this little tiny body, I also used the opportunity to pray for him, while his grandmother was outside the room.
How great that our Lord is caring for his creation and that he is already with Hassanein in these first days of his life.
Two successful procedures today
In order to begin to repair Hassanein’s heart, which has five heart defects, he needed to undergo a procedure at Sheba hospital which was a combination of a catheterization to place a stent in his heart, and a surgery to do a pulmonary artery banding.
After his surgery, he was transferred to the cardiac ICU instead of the neonatal ward he was in before surgery. His grandma was extremely happy and optimistic about the operation. She kept in contact with Hassanein’s mother in Gaza who was anxiously waiting for news of her boy.
Please be praying especially that Hassanein will grow, as he is still just over a kilo at three months old, and that no problems develop in his recovery.
