Stuck in a hospital bed, he's the cutest patient ever

Mother Masha Golberstein couldn't resist this pigtail hat made by Aurora Pass for her little boy during our visit on Friday, April 3, 2015. 

No, mama, no hat!
Mama achieves success - briefly - while he's preoccupied with cartoons.
When he realizes there is a hat on his head, off it comes!
Two-year-old Hillel was getting his kidney dialysis treatment during our visit. 

Hillel is being treated at U of M Masonic Children's Hospital in Minneapolis (formerly named Amplatz) and had recently flown in from his home in Israel. 

Hillel is waiting for a kidney transplant, but needs to be free of infections first. Two of his siblings also have kidney issues, specifically vesicoureteric reflux (VUR).

With my son's recent kidney troubles, I found the visit to be heart-breaking, but it was encouraging to meet such a strong mama and her adorable son. The family is in our prayers.
