Unexpected ER Trip

Unexpected ER Trip

We had an unexpected trip to the Emergency Room today with young Mir and his mother. After a night of fevers and a great deal of sweating over the course of the past week it was decided that Mir should be checked out by the medical team at Sheba.

On our way to the hospital today we prayed that God would go before us to make the road smooth and we were blessed by this prayer being answered. Mir was seen quickly by the ER team who were able to take blood, arrange a chest x-ray and liaise with the lead cardiologist on Mir's case, all within the space of a few hours.

Praise the Lord, Surgery Day!

Praise the Lord, Surgery Day!

In the hospital we went to visit Rahaf, the girl from Syria. She was not in the room at that moment but was being operated on, because today was surgery day! One hour later she was back in the ICU. We met her father there who seemed very relaxed. We introduced ourselves to him. The nurse present told us that the doctor was satisfied with the course of the operation - praise the Lord!

Visiting Ana

Visiting Ana

Today we went to Sheba hospital to spend time with Ana and see how she is doing. Hopefully tomorrow the other probe will be placed, but that is not yet certain. Please keep praying for Ana and her family!

Catheterisation

Catheterisation

Mary lay resting in secondary ICU with her mother's precious cross next to her chest at our time of leaving Sheba hospital today. The colour in her cheeks, head and arms looking much better than when we had first arrived early in the day.

Mary had a catheterisation this morning to widen an area of stenosis following her second surgery. It is hoped that this will allow increased blood flow from the heart and subsequently around her body. Her doctors reported that the procedure went well.

Yousif had another appointment to review his progress today at the hospital. He had an ECHO and ECG, and also needed a blood test. He waited patiently; he's such a smiley boy who is peaceful and chatty.

Visit to Sheba

Visit to Sheba

Mary had been crying almost all night, her mother was tired, had not slept, and had a headache. When we were there her mother took the time to eat her breakfast and take a shower. According to her mother, Mary has a catheterization tomorrow. Mary's head looks red and bloated.

We spent time with them, when we left, she was more relaxed and Mary slept. Ana was better than yesterday according to her mother, had no fever anymore. She will get the other probe one of these days, hopefully increasing her weight. Her mother hopes that she can then come to Shevet A to get stronger.

Ahmed was born July 16, and is only living by the oxygen he receives through a tiny ductus that normally closes after birth. We've arranged to get him a supply of the lifesaving medication prostaglandin until he can reach Israel for reparative surgery, God willing.
