Ridha has spent over ten hours in the operating room these past two days.
That is hours longer than any other child this mission and hours more than any eight-month-old should ever experience.
But in Ridha's case, those ten hours may have saved his life. Ridha made what we hope to be his last trip to the O.R. and is now in the ICU where he will begin his long road to recovery.
He's been here before, but this time he is more stable, his heart is stronger, and his body is responding like it needs to be.
Thanks for continuing to follow his story—more updates to come!
