A Burst of Joy as Ahmed Returns to Jerusalem

I arrived at Sheba Hospital, computer and funny movie in hand, planning to provide a little laughter for Ahmed and his mother. But the best burst of joy came when they heard they were getting a three day pass from the hospital!

Now that Ahmed is no longer on the vacuum pump he can move about unrestrained and he is enjoying it. There were a few conditions to the three day pass. 1.) He must return on Sunday to have his wound checked and get another dose of antibiotics. 2.) Someone has to be responsible for cleaning and changing the wound for the next three days until he returns.

It is a joy to have Ahmed and his mother back in the household. As I went to say goodnight and give medication I could see that joy had spread like wildfire among the other mothers and children. Father, let the healing continue!
