Mohammad Kanaan, an intensive care unit doctor, is proud of how quickly Hussein Msheik is recovering from the suicide bomb attack that reduced his passenger van to a charred tangle of metal earlier this month.Msheik was transferred to the Kamal Jumblatt hospital in Shoueifat shortly after the blast in serious condition, suffering from a lung contusion, liver damage and injuries all along the right side of his body.After more than three weeks of treatment, 25-year-old Msheik's condition has significantly improved and he is now expected to leave hospital in about a week. Msheik's brother, fiancee and other relatives were gathered in his room, offering guests chocolate and baklava sweets.Once he totally recovers, Msheik will get a new van and operate the Khaldeh-Shoueifat line again, he says adamantly. Batoul, who he got engaged to just 12 days before the attack, describes Msheik's safety as a "miracle".
