Anna and I arrived at the hospital to find mum in the waiting room, not frightened but rather joyful that her little girl is finally having the surgery. She has been waiting two years for Riham to be well.
The surgery was a success. The doctor said that there is now a problem with the electricity of Riham’s heart, and she is connected to a pacemaker whilst she is monitored over the next week. It is possible that she would need to have a permanent pacemaker if the situation does not improve.
Riham’s mother was able to breathe a happy sigh of relief when she saw her after the surgery. The doctors made use of the Arabic speakers amongst their staff to ensure that mum had translation for all the information following the surgery.
Please pray for Riham as she recovers this evening and overnight.
