Suwale's been hanging with her pals Lapken (on the left) and Chimwemwe (in the middle) today. They are big fans of having their photo taken, and then giggling at said photos when we show them on the back of the camera. This was the favorite of our afternoon photo session!

Hamsatou had surgery today! The surgeon liberated her fingers and made a graft on them to give more mobility to Hamsatou’s hand. Her fingers have been retracted for so long, it was hard to straighten them! She’s now recovering, please pray for her as she will probably be experiencing some soreness when she wakes up.

We talked to Miriam over the phone this morning, who gave us some good news about Gideon. He is off the oxygen machine and he is breathing on his own! He is also feeding well and he has learned to breastfeed! We are glad that he is doing well and we hope to see him soon. Please keep him and his whole family in your prayers!

We just wanted to stop in and let you all know that today Esnat (almost) ate a grasshopper. We promise we do feed her heaps of tasty food here. This was an isolated incident!

We caught our nurse Dorothy with Suwale this morning, changing the dressing on Suwale's leg. Dressing changes aren't the most pleasant thing in the world, but luckily Dorothy is an expert and Suwale is a champion!

Hissaiba keeps coming by several times a week for observation. She still needs a walker to move but we have seen some improvements! We hope she will be able to walk by herself soon!

Salé is doing great! His lip is healing well, and if everything keeps going that way, he will be able to go back home at the end of next week. So, please keep him in your prayers!

Esnat's been having a rad time outside with her pals Chisomo and Promise! Swinging in the sun is always a good time. Even though she's still able to do fun things like swinging on the swing, Esnat tells us that as soon as her hand is better you'll find her drawing "lots and lots of people"! We can't wait to see her pictures.

Today Grace is taking it easy! She's going to be around for a few more days, and on Friday we're hoping to put her leg into plaster cast so that everything stays set in the right place. We weren't able to yesterday, as the wound was gaping a little bit. Got to wait for that to heal up! Grace told us today that she is loving being at CURE - "I don't even miss home!" and she's very thankful for the treatment. We're so pleased she feels well looked after and loved, it's a joy to be able to care for her!

Here's Suwale with her featured friend of the day - Chimwemwe! Who happens to be a little more camera shy than Suwale. Never mind! Laughs were shared in any case!

Brian is doing well today! He just arrived back at the hospital and he refused to crack a smile for our camera because he is afraid of needles. He managed to give us a little grin which we love! Brian is here to get his cast removed on Thursday so that he can get a new one. We hope to catch Bran smiling soon!

Sale is doing well! He’s still need to stay in the kid’s ward and wait until his cleft lip is completely healed. He will stay about one more week with us! You’re looking good Sale!

It seems like every time we see Suwale she's hanging out with a new friend! She's such a champ at welcoming newcomers to the hospital and making everyone feel at ease. We've got good news for you too - the infection that she had is looking much better! We're continuing to dress and clean it regularly, so please pray that the healing continues!

Esnat is feeling much better today, as you can see! Please continue to pray for her healing, Esnat and Mwandida (her mom) are both eager to get back home, but the infection has slowed that plan down a little. We still believe there's room for some super-snazzy-fast healing in this situation!

Media is doing great! She is walking better with her crutches and her leg is healing well. The doctors have decided that she needs a knee brace to help her leg stay straight and they say they will see her again when she gets the brace. Please keep praying for her!

“Sebalu hasn’t disturbed much,” says Diana. We met up with Sebalu and Diana at a recent clinic in Kampala and Sebalu has grown so much we hardly recognized him. His shunt is functioning well, he feeds well and is learning how to sit. Diana had a little bout with malaria but she is now much better. Diana and her family are grateful for all the support and prayers from friends!

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
