July 2017 - Ilai undergoes back surgery
Ilai underwent a successful back operation and she is recovering
well. She is walking well, though of course slowly,
and is improving daily. She has been in hospital for a week
and should be allowed to go home in a few days time. In the meantime
she is a couple of centimetres taller because her back was
straightened. See also Archives.

End of term school report cards
Ilai and sister Amit got excellent
report cards with high grades and excellent remarks about behaviour and
Ilai also got a Certificate of Excellence for her achievements and
attitude towards learning and school.
Mom Limor, who
weeks before the prize giving ceremony knew that both her daughters
were to get Certificates of Achievement, told each one in strictest
confidence and secrecy that her sister was to get a certificate.
Imagine their surprise and delight to find out they too received one.

time. Vered Ron,

2013 - Ilai's eye operation
surgery early Wednesday morning on both her eyes to correct a problem.
She was really brave about the whole situation and didn't even complain
when she had to walk around for a day with her eyes closed. (Putting
drops in her eyes was another story ...). The operation appears to be
successful and by Friday she was able to accompany the family to their
skydiving adventure and see Daddy Aviv and Mommy Limor jumping. (see Archives of 17/8/2013 for
another picture of Ilai and here for
the family's skydiving pictures.).
