Amidst all the planning, logistics, noise and rush of the hospital it’s easy to forget the little people that all this commotion evolves around. The anxiety and fear experienced by them and the pain that they go through before and after they go under the knife. Though these are the emotions we expect them to go through it is hardly evident, as they interact with you in their playful innocent ways; they are children after all.
Ask any one of them if they are scared, and you will get an almost uniform answer of “no” or “Laa” in Arabic. The impact that their heart conditions is having on their lives is noticeable, making them very feeble and weak. But through this process and the caring dedication of those around them, their lives can be changed for the better.
