Activity for the week of Sunday, Aug 30

Jea from PhilippinesToday

We walked into work today thinking that it would be quiet in the hospital since it's a non-working holiday. Well, it's actually pretty lively because Jea and her chatty self is here! She came in for an emergency check up because one of the pins was slowly slipping out of her leg. Thankfully, Dr. Tim was around and saw that the pin was about ready to emerge, so he pulled it out in a matter of seconds! Jea was surprised that it happened so quick before she could even say a word! We replaced her cast with a cylinder cast which is a lot smaller in size than the last one. This will allow her to practice putting weight on her foot. Her next follow-up appointment is postponed for another month since she had this impromptu one. Until then, please keep praying for her healing!

Ruth from MalawiToday

Ruth was back today for a review and she's doing super well! She was full of laughs as usual, and doesn't have any complaints about her leg. She was stoked to catch up with her friend Lucius too, who is one of our nursing assistants here. Thanks heaps for continuing to pray for Ruth!

Esther from UgandaToday

"Esther is improving," says Mary. She hasn't had any health issues since she was discharged. She was scheduled for follow-up today and so Mary brought her. Esther was in the laboratory for a malaria test and complete blood count (CBC) and everything turned out good. We thank God for that!

Lisnert from MalawiToday

This one was back for her review appointment today! She's still on the crutches, but we've encouraged her not to be afraid to put weight on her leg. Lisnert told us she's looking forward to going back to school when the school year starts in a few weeks, and she's also looking forward to meeting the new baby brother or sister that her family is expecting any week now! She'll be back in six months for us to have another look at her leg, keep an eye out for her then! Thanks for continuing to pray for her!

Jahuhara from UgandaToday

Jahuhara has had a hard morning today. At 10:30 she was moved from the general ward to the ICU because she was having respiratory problems. She is currently resting in the ICU and is on oxygen. Prior to her respiratory problems things were looking good, she has begun to feed from a bottle and spoon. Please pray that her respiratory issues will quickly be resolved and she will be able to return to the ward and be scheduled for surgery soon.

Gracious from UgandaToday

Gracious has been doing okay as he is recovering from his surgery. His doctors have informed Pamela that Gracious will most likely go back into surgery this week. Pamela described her weekend as boring, the only highlight was the church service where the children in the hospital were prayed over. Please pray for Gracious' upcoming operation and comfort for Pamela as she waits.

Emmanuel from UgandaToday

Emmanuel was discharged on Saturday which is why we didn't get a chance to get a photo, but we will see them again in a month at outreach clinic and get one then! We will give Evelyn a call in a few days to hear how they are doing. Please keep Emmanuel and Evelyn in your prayers.

Elias from KenyaToday

Sure enough, Elias went home on Saturday. We should see him again in Embu the second week of October where we plan to remove his cast. Before he left, he was fitted for an ankle-foot orthosis and should receive it at the clinic. We can't wait to see this smiling boy again soon!

Maryam was waiting for her physiotherapy session earlier today! It’s still early in the morning and she probably would have been happier to sleep a little bit more! Courage Maryam!

Zerabiruk is back for his operation! He came in yesterday for admission and he will have his operation today. He has made a couple of friends in the ward and while waiting for his turn to be called to the operating room he spent his morning playing!

Chris from UgandaToday

Sarah and Chris arrived to CURE Hospital on Friday last week. They've seen their doctor who diagnosed him with hydrocephalus and referred Chris for a CT Scan which has already been done. Sarah, however, didn't spend the weekend at the hospital because she lives close by and was missing her other kids so the doctors allowed her to spend the weekend at home and she is now back. Today, Chris' CSF will be tapped and he will also be in the lab for different tests. We'll keep you all updated on the next step that the doctors take.

Apreal from PhilippinesToday

Apreal is now at the hospital! She had to skip school this week for the surgery, but she says "it’s fine". We found her in the ward reviewing some math problems with Encarnacion, so she will not be so behind with schoolwork. When asked if she was ready for surgery, she says, “I’m not scared of the surgery as long as I don’t see a syringe.” She seemed very brave but it may be inevitable that things might take a turn once she sees a needle. Thankfully, she won’t have to worry about it yet since we are giving her time to adjust while watching “Rio.” Apreal’s surgery will happen first thing tomorrow. Please pray for her!

Refif from EthiopiaToday

Refif came back yesterday for her admission and she is doing great! She is going to have a hardware removal on her left hip. She was so brave when they took her to the operation room, there wasn't any fear on her face. Please keep her in your prayers for a fast recovery!

Sebalu from UgandaToday

Sebalu needs our prayers because he isn’t doing really well. He still has convulsions and is not able to sleep soundly. He is feeding well and that is encouraging. He was given anti convulsants and advised to continue with physiotherapy.

Anisha from UgandaToday

Anisha was brought for clinic and she is completely healthy. She is gradually developing, she can now speak and she tries to sit on her own. Please continue to pray that her health stays on the up side!

Annette from UgandaToday

Annette was brought in for the clinic mostly to continue with physiotherapy. The physiotherapists are working on her standing and crawling, and her grandmother Sauda has noticed some positive changes. Her ETV is working just fine and she has less seizures these days. We are so thankful!

Abigail from UgandaToday

Natalie says she can sleep during the night because Abigail doesn’t cry as much anymore. Natalie’s siblings have been on school holiday and they have been very helpful and supportive with taking care of Abigail. In fact, Natalie’s younger brother accompanied them to the clinic we had in Kampala over the weekend. Please keep praying for Abigail's progress!

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.
