Patrick is back! He has been readmitted pending another CSF check to see if his 'water' is still mixed with blood. If not, he will be scheduled for surgery soon. We hope and pray for the best!

Stelia from MalawiToday

Guess who's been readmitted into the hospital! Stelia came in for a checkup and we read her some get-well messages right before she got admitted - another girl who was in for the clinic and her mom were also listening to CUREkids Coordinator Lawrence translate her messages to her! Stelia will most likely be having surgery later this week or next, so stay in tune!

Fatima from MalawiToday

Fatima came in for a wound check today and plaster change and her wound is looking really good! We're happy it's healing well and the dead skin didn't lead to any sort of infection! We brought her some get well messages and she said to tell you thank you, but also to tell you that she's quite skeptical you all are real! She thinks the CUREkids Coordinators are making all these get-well messages up, even though she's seen photos of a couple of you! She thinks we here at CURE trying to impress her - she said, "you're helping me, but you're also good at convincing." Apparently not that good if she doesn't believe you all are real! If anyone wants to send a short, preferably under one minute, YouTube link of yourself and/or your family saying a little bit about yourselves and that you're praying for her, maybe that will convince her! She'll be back August 22nd and hopefully the Internet will be reliable enough to show her!

Esther from UgandaToday

Over the weekend Agnes hasn’t noticed much change in Esther. She continues to feed through a NG tube and is working on physical therapy. There are no major concerns at this time, she has had no seizures, fevers, or vomiting recently. Her doctors are focused on getting her feeding orally and improving her movement. Agnes said they are both doing fair and that their weekend was uneventful. Please keep Esther in your prayers that she will improve and for them soon to be discharged.

That's definitely not a CIA operative! It's just Ethan, doing one last pose before he leaves today. He's so excited about going that it's the only thing he has been talking about. "I will be back on the 24th of January," he says, "stay well and miss me!" Oh, yes! We will miss you champ!

Meet Kingsley, a fun loving, seven year boy who has cerebral palsy. Kingsley is in the hospital in the company of his grandmother, Esther. He will be going through surgery tomorrow to correct his leg right leg. Check back tomorrow to see how that surgery goes and keep him in prayer, as he prepares to go for the procedure! Here is a video to show how he gets by with the foot deformity. http://youtu.be/2MZ8kSF2NuQ

Chosadziwa is in physiotherapy doing some stretches for his legs! He's doing well and Dr. Lubega said to continue with the turns. Later, we found him enjoying watching Barbie's 12 Dancing Princesses and coloring in the playroom!

Tiyanjane from MalawiToday

Tiyanjane is enjoying playing a card game with one of the other patient's mothers! She looks really happy! She'll be staying here the rest of the week doing some pretty intensive physiotherapy, so you can be praying for her while she does that! Physiotherapy can sometimes be quite painful!

Brivian from UgandaToday

Brivian had a CT scan this morning and the results will be assessed by her doctor later in the day, so for now she is being observed in the ward. After settling in, Brivian and her mom had a nice meal of rice and beans. She is still a little bit shy but seems to be getting used to the environment here, please keep them in your prayers!

“The first thing I noticed at this hospital is that you people care about your patients and I know that my Baby Janat will be fine,” said Sarah. Our nurses have taught Sarah about the causes of spina bifida, she understands that baby Janat will be in surgery soon and is hoping for the best. Please keep her in your prayers.

Tikambenji from ZambiaToday

Did you know that Tikambenji means "What can we say" ? Well, in truth, what can you say when you have a child as wonderful, beautiful, playful and as lovely as Tika? "God is good" perhaps? Because He is indeed good! During the weekend, the little princess was discharged and she has since gone home. She will return next month better, stronger and her legs straighter. And hopefully, she will still have her great persona and beautiful smile! Go girl!

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.
