Madia showed up today for a check up! She still has a cast on her leg, but doctors told her that she'll be ready to get it taken off next time she comes. We're so glad to see her and are praying for her continued healing as the countdown to cast off continues!

Sodogas, our physical therapist, came today to teach Ousseina to use a walker, so she can move as she’s waiting for her leg to heal. Hang in there Ousseina!

Today's physiotherapy activity is more catching and throwing! She is champ at it, we can assure you. Good news too, Estery is about two thirds of the way through her treatment! So hopefully in about four weeks we can remove the frames. Not too long now!

We sat with Thoko listening to music on our laptop today. She told us that worship music is her fave, and she says "I like big groups of people singing with all their different voices together!" She also told us she's in a bit of pain today, so please keep praying for strength and perseverance for her as she goes through the rest of her treatment with the frame.

When we went to check on Ousseina this afternoon, she was resting, and we don't blame her! The surgery she went through was quite heavy and she needs all the rest she can get. Please, keep praying for her!

Thokozani is still keeping all of us laughing! Here she is with her pals Estery (on the left) and Meble (on the right). We're so glad these girls have each other for company, it definitely makes time in the hospital a lot more enjoyable for them!

Miracle from Zambia3 days ago

Miracle was supposed to have surgery this week but her temperature has not been stable. Miracle's mother Tabitha and grandma Lanny are relieved help will come Miracle's way. At just 8 days old, Miracle is the youngest kid in our hospital and she is receiving a lot of attention.

Badru from UgandaJul 02, 2015

Badru had a really good night, and we've been told he will be in surgery any day next week. A group of visitors from the USA, a CURE GO-Team, gave him a stuffed animal dog and he is so excited to have it! Please keep him in your prayers as he awaits surgery.

Julian from PhilippinesJul 02, 2015

Julian was back today, got his cast off and the pins out of his arm. He didn’t cry, but he sure made some epic faces as the pins came out! Don’t worry, he was back to his smiley self almost immediately afterward! He took the pins home, we’re sure his friends will be impressed when he shows them off. His arm is straight, it’s such a cool transformation to see! It’s still a bit sore and stiff, but some exercise will get it working soon!

Boubacar was just seated quietly this morning, hanging out with some other kids and their families at the Case de passage. It’s so great to have some friends around!

Ousseina from NigerJul 01, 2015

Ousseina had surgery today! It was a heavy one, as the surgeon had to straighten her leg by fusing the bones together. Ousseina will have her leg straight, but she won’t be able to bend her knee anymore. That’s the best solution for her though, and we're praying for her recovery!

Ruth from MalawiJul 01, 2015

Ruth is feeling on top of the world today! In response to our question, "How does it feel without the top part of the frame?" she told us happily, "Much lighter!" Right now she's under strict instruction to bend her knee as often and as much as possible, and hopefully we'll be able to remove the rest of the frame next week or the one after.

Badru from UgandaJul 01, 2015

When we asked Badru if he wanted to go back home, he said he wanted to "go back home to play", his favorite game being hide and seek, which he plays with his brother Zackaria. Badru is still hanging out in the ward awaiting surgery, so please keep him in your prayers.

Boubacar from NigerJun 30, 2015

Boubacar is doing fine! He still needs to stay with us for a bit longer, but as he’s waiting for a full healing, he definitely enjoys playing in the art therapy room!

This morning, Nana went to the art therapy workshop, and she made a beautiful necklace with some plastic pearls! It's been an artsy week for her!

Hamsatou from NigerJun 30, 2015

Today, Hamsatou was back with us for another dressing change. Her hand is healing well, but she still hides it from the others, keeping it safely tucked in her dress. We are looking forward to the day she will be proud to show it to everyone!

Ruth from MalawiJun 30, 2015

Look who's back! Ruth has just had the top part of her frame removed, and is recovering nicely in bed. Seeing her walking around earlier today, we were pretty impressed with how fast she was getting around! Although she's still having trouble bending that knee. We've left the bottom part of the frame on so there is less risk of breaking her thigh bone while we try to encourage her to get it moving more. Keep praying for Ruth, we'll update you again tomorrow and let you know how she's doing.

Makina from MalawiJun 30, 2015

Makina's doing so well we've let him go home! He left this morning before we could get a photo, but not to worry because we'll be seeing him again in August to remove the cast from his leg. We're looking forward to seeing TWO straight legs this time! We'll update you then!

Badru from UgandaJun 30, 2015

Badru had a high fever in the night, but the nurses gave him some medicine, and thankfully that did the trick to get the fevers down. The doctors explained the results from the CT scan to Hajara, and she was told Badru has a tumor, and they are now making a plan for his surgery. Hajara said she will spend most of the day taking care of him, so please keep those prayers coming!

"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.
