Grab Your Backpack, Let’s Go—Zahraa Is Leaving The ICU!

Doctor Novick and team work on Zahraa

Good news! Zahraa (AKA the girl in the red coat) made it through surgery and is now in the ICU resting up. In an effort to cheer her up, the ICU nurses gave her Dora the Explorer stickers and have been singing the theme song with her. It was a sweet moment, but now I can’t get that song out of my head!

Zahraa’s operation went so well that they are releasing her from the ICU soon. She will then spend a day or two in the ward, and after that she goes home! I plan to visit the family’s hospital room after Zahraa is released, so come back tomorrow to hear more about this precious little girl and her trek toward recovery. Come on, vamanos!
