If it wasn’t for the Sheba pajamas and the surrounding setting of secondary ICU, it would be hard to guess that just four days ago Mohammed had his surgery! Praise God, He is so good and His timing is perfect.
It was wonderful to visit Mohammed and his father today. Mohammed was sat watching Arabic nursery rhymes on his father’s phone, smiling, laughing and interacting so nicely. We learned today that he will be discharged from hospital tomorrow.
Give God all the glory for making a way for Mohammed. Please pray for him as he returns home tomorrow that he and his father may come to know and love their creator.
Mohammed’s father excitedly ushered us into the room show us how Mohammed is awake and extubated. He described the surgery with a few gestures and was so pleased that it was successful.
Mohammed also had been moved into the secondary ICU by the time we left the hospital today, the doctor was very pleased with his quick recovery.
Please pray for his continued recovery, and we hope to see him home at Shevet soon.
A healing heart, a weary father
Something amazing happened today!
Little Mohammad finally received his lifesaving surgery to close the hole in his heart. Blood is now flowing properly through his veins to nourish and strengthen his body. These pictures were taken just when Mohammed’s weary father was finally allowed in to see his son after surgery.
So even though this was a traumatic day, his long healing process has now begun. We pray it will culminate in a healthy young boy who can grow up to be a blessing and accomplish much for the Kingdom.
Called to hospital for surgery
We found out today that Mohammed will have his surgery tomorrow. This is such great news which has come through much quicker than we had perhaps expected.
Mohammed has already become a very wonderful addition to our Shevet Community. He is so full of joy and laughter and the boy loves to dance! As we drove to hospital, Mohammed was clicking his fingers above his head in his car seat and smiling away.
When we arrived at the hospital Mohammed went for chest x-ray before going to his bed in secondary ICU. The whole process was very smooth and quick and we are thankful to God for this.
Mohammed will have his surgery early tomorrow morning. Please pray for him and the surgical team tomorrow. We can’t wait to have him back home with us soon.
