Siku njema huonekana asubuhi - a swahili saying that translates to: A good day becomes evident in the morning. Today in the morning we went to check on Promise, he was peacefully sleeping and his grandmother who was already awake told us, "He is better today." A statement we got from a lot of other mothers in the ward, and we knew it was definitely going to be a better day. When Promise finally woke up, he was smiling, not a wide all-teeth showing smile, but a cool shy smile. He was no longer in pain. We thank God that he is doing great, we hope and continue to pray that the swelling on his foot will go down and he will soon be on his way home. Thank you for standing in prayer for all our kids in the ward. We praised God for all the answered prayers!
Stelia's enjoying the playroom again this morning! She said that she had physio earlier today and wasn't in any pain, and that she's pretty happy! Thandy says she sounds a bit tired of the hospital though, so we're excited to say that Dr. James gave the okay to send her home tomorrow! We asked, and he said she probably won't have the plate taken out because since she has a bone condition, she probably won't grow much more so it will just correct by the time she's done growing!
Pearson is doing well today! He had some physiotherapy with physio student Lawrence this afternoon. Tomorrow he's going to go in for some sort of procedure - Dr. James says it will depend on how his wound looks. If it's still bad he'll just have another vac put on, but if not, they'll either leave it off or possibly skin graft if it looks really clean! Please be praying!
Tesfanesh wanted a picture with her best friend Mariam, but Mariam was not up for it! Tesfanesh is doing great! Her foot is all healed and she will wear an Ankle-Foot Orthosis(AFO) brace. We will see her progress at her next checkup at the end of March.
After waiting for more than a week to get her sodium to an acceptable level, Rosemary has gone in for surgery. They performed and ETV/CPC and she has been moved to the ICU where she was reunited with her mother. They will spend the night there, please be praying for Rosemary to recover well.

Why I Support CURE
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.Chris Tomlin
