We are pleased to report and thank God that Jaber was released from the hospital today. The glow of happiness on his mother's face was a joy to see. His mother's parents came to pick them up to return them to their home in Bethlehem. They were very happy to be on their way. We wish them God's blessing.

Jaber From Bethlehem Undergoes Heart Surgery

Jaber reached the hospital last Wednesday. The last two times I visited the hospital, I didn't see Jaber's mother. Yesterday when I was there, Jaber wasn't in the ICU. Today as I walked in, I noticed that his oxygen was at 100. This would be impossible for a child in urgent need of heart surgery.

As I was sitting with Ali, Jaber's mother walked in and I asked her what the situation was. She pulled back the blankets that covered Jaber and revealed a scar that runs nearly the full length of his upper body. Jaber had a successful heart surgery yesterday and was extubated today. It was less than a week ago that this child was brought in from Bethlehem.

As Jaber's mother and I sat and talked this evening, she wore a smile from ear to ear. She was so excited to have a healthy son. If Jaber continues to recover as he has, he will be moved out of the ICU tomorrow.
