Little Ridha made it through his operation, but went into cardiac arrest when his heart failed shortly after arriving in the ICU.
Thankfully, the ICU team was right there with him before they rushed him back into the operating room for another corrective surgery.
Two operations in less than 24 hours—not ideal for anybody, let alone little Ridha.
We've been amazed at the recovery of Zainab, Elias, and so many others this mission. It gives us every reason to hope that we'll be amazed by Ridha all over again.
If you have been following Ridha's story, thank you. Your support has been overwhelming these past 24 hours.
Please pray for Ridha, and come back for the update on his second lifesaving surgery today.
