Mercy for Omar

Posted on Sun, 10/21/2018 - 10:45 by Georgia Willcocks
 
This is little Omar, who was granted emergency permission to come into Israel on Thursday. God has truly shown him mercy, because as the team had been preparing for bringing him here urgently, the Gaza border was closed, due to unrest at the end of last week. But, praise God, this little one was able to pass through the closed border and on up to the hospital with his grandad. 
 
Today, Yousif was able to visit him in the ICU. He is intubated, and the medical team are waiting for him to stabilise before they are able to prepare him for surgery, hopefully in the next few days.
 
Please keep him in your prayers.

Doing Well

When we visited Mohammed this morning he was fast asleep in secondary ICU. Last Thursday Mohammed received his PA shunt and he is doing really well. His oxygen levels are good. They only discovered he had a bacteria for which he is on antibiotics right now.

Strength for the Weary

Strength for the Weary

Today Gabriel had his 8th echo appointment. We all hoped so much that the results would be better. Sadly the doctor had to say that the pericardial effusion is still present. Mom was so disappointed. She cried and we felt also very sad for her. Although he is on a strict fat free diet and taking hgh doses of diuretic medication, still there is hardly any improvement.

Adeeb Returns

Adeeb Returns

Today we picked up Adeeb and his grandmother from Gaza for an echo. He had a cath in Israel last year, but the echo showed he still has stenosis. Therefore he needs a catheterisation in about three weeks. Adeeb is a lovely boy and and has bravely endured everything. Adeebs's grandmother is a warm, lovely woman, it was nice to meet her.

Please continue to pray for Adeeb's recovery.

Good News for Judy

Good News for Judy

 
We collected Judy and her sweet mum from the Erez border this morning, along with another family and travelled up to Sheba. Judy has grown since I last saw her and was dressed in a really sweet pink winter outfit with hat. She looked so gorgeous and so similar to her mum!

His uncle had to made some adjustments but is now caring after his nephew. Mohammed will need another operation in one year's time. He first needs to grow bigger and stronger.
 
Thanks to God he is doing so well.
 

Welcome to Israel!

Early this morning little Mohammed arrived at the airport with his uncle and Dr. Fitun. They arrived safely and everything at the airport went really smooth and quick. The shunt in Mohammed’s heart is just kept open by constantly infusion of prostaglandin, so we rushed to the hospital, where the sweet nurses received him. The nurses took a lot of test and the doctor also examined him. Little Mohammed was very tired and cried a lot.

Mohammed’s uncle was very tired after the long journey, but he waited patiently. It turned out that Mohammed will have a catheterization for a shunt tomorrow, so he doesn’t need the prostaglandin anymore, and then he might be able to go home. His pulmonary arteries need a year’s time to grow – then he will come back for another surgery.

Pray for a successful catheterization for Mohammed tomorrow.


Cath Postponed

Cath Postponed

Noor and her grandma were waiting for Noor's catherization which was supposed to be at one or two p.m. But then the doctor came and told the Grandma that the catherization is not possible today because of an emergency baby. Noor's grandma was really sad and felt neglected. After lunch the nurses prepared Noor to come back to Shevet. So Noor will stay the weekend at Shevet. Hopefully she will have her catherization next week. Please pray for Noor that tthe catherization can be done next week.

It was a busy day in Sheba today, with many members of the medical team dashing about to see to urgent children. But despite the waiting, the cardiologist was able to take his time and so thoroughly  look over Varin's echo and ECGs, and give us the happy news that her heart is looking good.
