We thank you all - from the cleaning staff whose work is essential, the smiling auxiliary staff who work so hard, the dedicated nurses who give their whole hearts, and the interns who work day and night and yet still do everything that is needed and treat us all so beautifully even during hard times of extreme fatigue on their part.

"Above all - a big, indescribable thank you to senior neurosurgeon Dr. Samuel Moscovici, who was a faithful and dedicated messenger of G-d in the battle to save Nahum's life (and not just once), who did everything with great professionalism and with a wide open heart and thanks to Dr. Guy Rosenthal, Director of the Intensive Care Neurosurgery Unit in Ein Kerem. Because of them, we have Nahum alive and breathing, working hard and progressing," the parents added.

Nahum's parents ask the public to continue praying for Nachum Elimelech Rafael Ben Zahava Rivka for complete recovery and rehabilitation.
