It has been a great recovery for Medina thus far. She is still pretty quiet as usual, but not in any pain! We're thankful for that!

Muthoki from KenyaToday

We were all so happy to see this sweet girl today! She was in her favorite hat and in her best mood. The doctor said that her leg is doing very well! We read her get well massages to her and she was very happy to know that people were still praying for her! We won't be seeing Muthoki again until next year. She promised to bring us some presents when we see her again in January.

Job from KenyaToday

Today, Job showed up at our Machakos clinic in the company of his brother Isaac and their father. Though he had some mild pain in his left shoulder, he still had a smile on his face. The doctor examined him and gave him a prescription for the pain. Job’s father was requested to take him for an X-ray scan before the next clinic. Apart from that, Job is doing great, the fracture site has completely healed, and the pain on his left leg is now gone. “Last term, I was number three in class!” Job said, with a smile on his face. He told us he's ready to resume school next Wednesday to continue working hard. We hope to meet him again on our next clinic here in October, and let's continue praying for him as he gets back to his studies!

Ousseina from NigerYesterday

Ousseina’s leg keeps getting better and better. The more she comes, the more we can see it straightening out! As she has an external fixator on it, she just needs to wait and see! She’s confident and patient, and please keep her in your prayers as the healing process goes on!

Jaica from PhilippinesYesterday

Jaica is standing, still with help, but she’s making big steps in her recovery! He legs are getting stronger all the time, and we just know she’ll be walking unattended soon. There has been some discussion about having her live in a town an hour or so south of here, at a recovery center, which will give her intense, dedicated therapy, since she’s so close to walking, but needs some extra help. There are a lot of details to work out, the family certainly wants to be with her, and we want that too! Would you join us in prayer for Jaica and her family? Please pray for wisdom and provision so Jaica can continue to grow stronger!

Wincess from PhilippinesYesterday

Wincess was back for a follow up, and while she’s not running marathons yet, she is walking, and her hip is staying in place! She spent some time in physical therapy to learn a few strengthening exercises. The nine hour overnight bus trip proved to be tiring this time around, and Wincess spent most of the morning sleeping while they waited. She did find time to peek out the 5th Floor window with Dodong, which was one of her favorite views while she was here for surgery last Spring. Thanks for all the ongoing prayers, this little one is doing great!

Nana was quietly sitting on the chair at the Case de passage this morning while our social worker Mantou was going through the list of the residents in the house. Such a cooperative girl!

Adidya from Malawi3 days ago

Adidya's surgeon, Dr Maina, gave her the all clear to go home this morning! Adidya and her mom, Fatima, are spending one more night at the hospital before leaving early tomorrow morning. Please pray for their journey home, as well as continuing to keep Adidya in your prayers over the next few months before we see her in October for a review. Thanks for joining in with their experience here at CURE!

Miracle from Zambia3 days ago

Miracle and her mom came to see us today! Oh, we just love seeing this sweet baby girl. She is so different and that's a great thing! Dr. Onen loves the progress she has made so far. At 7 months, she is sitting on her own and very actively moving her legs. It was also great to see Dr. Onen hold her as he chatted with Miracle's mom. We will be seeing Miracle in a few weeks time when they come back for bowel management lessons. Thank you so much for praying for this sweet baby girl and her family!

Jyzyl from Philippines3 days ago

Jyzyl was here bright and early to have the final pin removed from his foot. It was a quick and simple procedure, but the anesthesia made him feel sick afterward. Luckily, Esther was here to comfort him while he recovered. He felt well enough to play a few rounds of racing on the PS3 before heading home. Remember a few months back when dad Jojo said he had no idea how to play the racing game? Well, we’re happy to report that...well, nothing’s changed! The two had a blast in the playroom anyways, and they’ll be back in a few weeks for another follow up and to start some physiotherapy! Those first steps are oh so close!

Ousseina from NigerAug 24, 2015

We met Ousseina this morning! She still needs to come regularly to have her dressing changed. She’s fine and she takes the treatment very seriously, we are looking forward to seeing the final result!

Hanifa had to go to her physiotherapy session very early this morning so she was quite awake! Sometimes life at the hospital is hard!

Adidya from MalawiAug 24, 2015

We've won Adidya over at last! On Friday when we were leaving work Adidya told us that if we stayed at the hospital for the weekend then she'd cook us some rice. Unfortunately we had places to be so we couldn't take Adidya up on her excellent offer, but she was very happy to see us again today! What a champ. We are stoked she's feeling so much better!

Hanifa invited herself into this photo making everyone quite angry. But still, it’s a funny pic, right?!

Jyzyl from PhilippinesAug 21, 2015

Jyzyl was back today for his final cast removal! He was excited, but at the same time didn’t want to watch them being removed. He doesn’t get to try his new legs out quite yet, an x-ray revealed that he still has a pin in the bottom of one of his feet, and he’ll need to be sedated in order to remove it. The good news is, he’ll be back Tuesday to have it done, then it’s on to walking lessons! We’re so looking forward to seeing Jyzyl stand and walk for the first time!

Denis from UgandaAug 21, 2015

Denis is going home today! We asked Becky if she was excited to go home and with a big smile she laughed and said, “So much!” Today one of Denis’ doctors removed his bandages and instructed Becky on proper care, then staff members said their goodbyes. We will see Denis and Becky again next month at an outreach clinic where he will be examined to ensure he is recovering properly. Please pray for Denis’ continued recovery.

Adidya from MalawiAug 21, 2015

Exciting news - Adidya got to have her surgery first thing this morning! It was a pretty quick procedure, with our surgeons making two incisions in her right leg and cutting out a wedge of bone from each in order to make the leg straight. Adidya now has a nice fat plaster cast on her leg to fix everything in position, and she's out in the ward recovering. Please pray for her, we'll update and let you know how she's feeling soon!

Denis from UgandaAug 20, 2015

Denis was not discharged today and his doctors have decided to keep him for one more day. Becky went to the church service held for the families in the ward where she learned about forgiveness and to trust God. “We give all are problems to God, we don’t lose hope,” said Becky. Besides the church service, Becky has had a quiet day resting in the ward. Becky says, she can see improvements in Denis.

Adidya from MalawiAug 20, 2015

When we first met Adidya a couple of days ago she wasn't exactly excited about seeing us and having her photo taken, but we've made friends since then. Her grumpy face didn't last long - when we showed her this photo she had to hide a smile! Adidya will be having surgery in the next few days, so please pray for her and the surgeons as they prepare. We're all looking forward to her leg being healed!

Denis from UgandaAug 19, 2015

Yesterday’s surgery was successful! Denis’ had a bilateral subdural aspiration performed and he spent last night in the ICU and this morning was moved back into the ward. Becky is anticipating being discharged soon, possibly as early as tomorrow morning. This is exciting for Becky as she has been missing her family. The plan is to send Denis and Becky home for a month then have them come back for a check up and possibly a third operation.

Makina from MalawiAug 18, 2015

Ok, huge news! Makina was back today, has had the plaster cast removed, and is now walking around (with crutches) on two straight legs! We are all kinds of excited. We've sent him home with his crutches and hopefully by the time we see him again in November at his local clinic, he should be almost off them. Thanks heaps for your prayers for this guy, it's so rad to see his transformation!
