Samayan is a very powerful and funny kid with whom you’ll never get bored. Also his mom is a very nice and also funny woman. We are thankful for the time we got to spend with them and will definitely miss these two.
While we were waiting together in the hospital, we played a lot, he was coloring, we were laughing and running together through the waiting area as he kept saying “Taali Dola!” (come on Doro)
After the echo, suddenly the doctor had the very surprising good news for us, that Samayan is doing so well that he can go home to Kurdistan! So only three weeks after his surgery, Samayan is already discharged to Kurdistan and of course his mom is very happy.
Let us thank God for this good news and for the life of our sunshine Samayan!
Today, coworker Amelie and I went to Sheba Medical Center to collect cute Samayan and his lovely mother, as Samayan would be discharged today to Ashdod. Until he was discharged, we played hide and seek (what he really loved) and he laughed a lot.
The doctors showed Samayan’s mother how she should clean the incision site and put a bandage back on it. Samayan is in a good general condition, and his wound is looking well. In one week, he is going to have a follow-up echo at Sheba.
Let’s pray for a quick and full recovery for Samayan.
When we entered his room today, he was already extubated, sitting up and eating. The doctors told us that it’s really great how good he is doing the day after his surgery.
It was really nice to visit him and his mother today and we laughed and danced together. Please keep praying for these two.
Today at Sheba Medical Center, Samayan’s heart surgery to repair a hole in his heart went very well. After two and a half hours, the surgeon came out to inform us that the surgery was already done and was good. Samayam is stable and already started waking up – praise God.
Samayan’s mother was so brave and calm during the waiting time and happy then to be reunited with her son.
Please pray that Samayan will recover very well and soon can return to his father and brothers in Kurdistan.
Today, coworkers Doro, Lilly, and Rachel drove very early to Sheba Hospital to be with Samayan’ s mother during the surgery of her son. But because of another emergency surgery, Samayan’s surgery was postponed until Sunday. Samayan was therefore discharged to Ashdod for the weekend.
Coworker Willem and I picked both Samayan and his mother up at the hospital later. Samayan greeted me with a big smile.
Samayan and his mom will stay with us in our community home in Ashdod until Saturday night. Upon entering the home, she was a little sad that the other mothers who were also in the house are now returned to Kurdistan. They became good friends in the last weeks together. Samayan however is already having fun again.
We can pray for a good weekend and peace for Samayan and his mother. And also that the heart surgery on Sunday will go very well.
He looked very well, and his mother told me that the catheterization went very well. Samayan proudly showed how bravely he’s handling the cannula in his hand, and the oxygen reader on his big toe.
After speaking with the nurs,e we were informed that Samayan will be having surgery tomorrow. Please pray that God’s hand will be over the surgeons, and his healing upon Samayan.
Today, Samayan had a diagnostic catheterization at Sheba Medical Center. The doctors told me that the catheterization went ok, but he definitely needs surgery to repair his VSD (ventricle septum defect).
We all are happy to have them here and to spend time with them. Please continue praying for Samayan and his lovely mother.
This morning we got a phone call from Sheba Hospital, telling us that Samayan can have his cath already tomorrow. We told this good news to his mom as coworker Amelie and I drove together to bring both her and Samayan to the hospital.
There he had today an ECG and an X-ray for his admission. In the waiting time, he was playing a lot and was very happy about everyone he could meet. He doesn’t like the procedures, but loves to make new friends.
Let’s pray for a successful cath tomorrow and for all the doctors and nurses who are caring so wonderfully for him!
