Noor 's Heart Surgery


Artificial Eye To Be Prepared For Noor

Posted on Mon, 02/23/2009 - 00:00 by Dorothy_Finlay

When I was in the children's ward, I visited this little girl from Gaza. and I learned more about the story of her eye. Two years ago she had surgery for a malignant tumour but was unable to get a suitable prosthesis. Tomorrow she will go to Haifa to a specialist unit which will begin the process of preparing an artificial eye with the exact characteristics of her beautiful brown eye.

Noor has already sustained a heart operation, and is recovering well from it. Having this cosmetic correction will make a huge difference to her as she grows into the happy little girl she shows in her picture.

Please pray for her and her family as she will then return to Gaza when released from Wolfson. We are so grateful that Shevet can touch the children from Gaza whose lives are often so difficult.

Today I got to visit Noor, who had surgery on Monday and is now progessing well in the children's ward. Noor is from Gaza and, along with her mother, has been somewhat anxious but now is progressing well.

Please continue to pray for her and the other children who come from Gaza and the West Bank. They come with some apprehension and are often unsettled; smiles intersperse with tears.

Successful Surgery Today

We visited Noor today at Wolfson Medical Center in Tel Aviv. Her surgery was
performed today and it was a complete success. She is presently recovering
in the ICU and her condition is stable. She was already responsive when I
visited and was able to move her hands quite a bit. Please continue to pray
for her as she recovers.
