About Pius

Pius’ injury to his right arm was a result of a stunt gone badly. He had just finished his obstacle course, climbing up a stone tank, and just when he was about to lift up his hands as a show of victory, he slipped and fell off, hurting the back of his head and his arm in the process. The injury to his head healed quickly, but his arm, despite many physiotherapy sessions, had not shown any improvements. That said, CURE was their last resort, according to his mother Dorcas. Hopefully a last resort indeed as we pray that this past surgery has done the trick, getting Pius back to his tricks…safer ones at least.

  1. 05/13/2013 The last time we saw him was in August, and the next time we will be going to Nakuru will be in August. With most of the elbow cases, the success rate is usually so high and parents assume that they do not need to return for follow up, we pray that that is the case with Pius.
  2. 03/01/2013 Every time kids miss their appointments like this, we like to believe that it is because they are doing well and their parents feel that they no longer need any follow up. Please be praying that this is so for Pius as well. When he shows up though, we will let you know.
  3. 01/07/2013 Can we try look out for him in Nakuru in February?
  4. 10/18/2012 Pius's follow up appointment has been scheduled for 11/29/2012 - Again, no Pius at the clinic today. We are definitely calling them, to refer them to the last mobile clinic in their home area in November.
  5. 08/27/2012 Pius's follow up appointment has been scheduled for 10/18/2012 - There was no Pius at the clinic last week, He has been making remarkable progress and I pray that he will retain that record. I hope to see him at at the mobile clinic in October.
  6. 05/04/2012 Pius showing off how much more he can flex his arm at the mobile clinic in Nakuru yesterday :-) Clearly he is doing so much better and we thank God for that. He is to continue exercising with his mother until we see them again in August. http://bit.ly/J5vU6C

  9. 03/09/2012 Pius's follow up appointment has been scheduled for 05/03/2012 - Because of a government hospital strike, we had to cancel our mobile clinic yesterday! We tried calling Pius, but weren't able to connect, so until we hear otherwise, we're hoping he'll come for the next clinic in May :)
