Meer Challenges Preemptive Love Staff to Soccer 2 Weeks After Surgery!
September 18, 2009 by Joshua
After a great check-up visit with Meer Mustaffa yesterday we found out that Meer’s case was just the 51st of its kind reported in the world. We are so grateful to have the wonderful doctors and surgeons at the Anadolu Medical Center in Istanbul, Tukey, and to our local doctors, like Dr. Aso Faeeq, for their help in getting Meer to surgery in time.
Meer is doing really well back at home and is poised to go on living a healthy life. In fact, he hasn’t slowed down at all in the wake of his surgery a few weeks ago… he’s ready to get back to playing football with his friends. Only this time he can expect to play without getting tired so easily and without any risk of fainting from low oxygenation.
He even went so far as to challenge the PLC staff to a match…. we’re delaying as long as we can so as to avoid being schooled by a kid straight out of surgery. We’re all pretty confident that we’ll lose!
