32399650_1535131098656396_r.jpegGerald Zuhal Oliver* was born to Daniel & Sumra Oliver last Monday, 20 August.  His four sisters welcomed him to their Lahore home with Qur-an recitations, smiles and kisses.

Gerald Zuhal’s third afternoon on this earth was spent recovering from an emergency surgery to correct a life threatening intestinal birth defect.  His mother Sumra’s vigilance was just in time to save his life.  

Although Gerald Zuhal is now relatively stable under pediatric specialist supervision, the solution to his condition requires further tests, examinations, treatments and operations, according to his lead surgeon, over a span of 3-4 months. 

Daniel’s insurance does not extend to Gerald Zuhal’s healthcare, so all treatment must be paid in full at admission or discharge. The reality of specialist care, even in Pakistan, is that it is expensive.  There are few specialists of the type needed, and it was a mercy that he was in hospital rather than leave on the day of the operation.

The main goal of this Go Fund Me is to make sure baby Gerald can proceed with his treatment regimen unimpeded, for the sake of his health, and the happiness of his family;  that family of course, is you, united with us in your faith and humanity.

*Gerald Zuhal takes his first name from his father’s father.  Zuhal, his middle name, is an Arabic name of the distant planet Saturn.

An update on Baby Gerald Zuhal from Daniel:
-----------------------------
Dear Friends & Family,

Assalamu alaykum and Hello! This is a short note to tell you that baby Gerald Zuhal is in full health and spirits! He recovered well from his operation, and the doctor gave the “all-clear” in our first follow-up appointment a week after his discharge. This is the most difficult and frightening challenge our family has ever faced, but we made it through thanks to you! Your support, prayers, donations and encouragement meant a lot to us, and it still does! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. We are relieved, but exhausted. It’s the parents’ turn to recover now! Peace...
