Malitina's in bed recovering from her wound inspection yesterday, having a nice nap! Her new 'splint' looks a lot more comfy than the old one, it's just a piece of foam to keep her arm in place!

Emily's still in bed today, we haven't seen her out and about yet unfortunately. She was getting her wound dressed behind the curtain - hiding away! It looks like her friend Hope smuggled in some fruit from the outside, she was eating an orange and the whole septic bay smelled lovely!

Mazuba from ZambiaToday

Mazuba had another debridement today. The significance of today's surgery is that this is the first time since his accident that he has been given a cast. Godfrey is happy because he has been given other great news! The news is that Mazuba will start physiotherapy tomorrow so that he can start using his other leg again. We serve a living God!

Lonjezo is back for a physio appointment! She needs a new shoe raise but unfortunately, her mom didn't bring the right shoe to get it, so she'll need to come back again soon for that. Diana, our physiotherapists, says she's doing well and is walking around a bit, but that she cried during physio. Please be praying for her!

Alinafe was outside chilling in the shade under the swing this morning! Now she's joining in with the card game with the rest of the kids - maybe she wasn't 100% sure how it was played yesterday!

Abdul from MalawiToday

Abdul was playing card games again today, first with Aisha and later with a bunch of other kids outside - I guess he's finally got sick of bao! He's going to be done with turns for the frame on Friday! They'll do an x-ray to make sure it's in the right position and then he'll go home for a couple weeks while the bone heals straight and strong before he comes back to have the frame off!

Calvine from MalawiToday

Calvine's been discharged! The ward is VERY full this week so it's a good thing he's heading home to make room for the other kids! He's finally got his splint made - one for both of his hands. His agogo (grandma) is making him wave with his splinted hand! We brought him into the office after the splints were made to listen to get well messages. He was very teary eyed after physio, but a bit of chocolate cheered him right up!

Jowasi from UgandaToday

“Jowasi is going for operation,” said Mbabazi. Another operation was performed because his first ETV surgery had failed. Today, his doctors performed a lamina terminalis reopening and he his currently resting in the ICU. Before being moved to the ICU, Jowasi had a seizure which was treated, but this has scared Mbabazi. Please be praying for Jowasi's recovery and for strength and courage for Mbabazi.

Adamtachew from EthiopiaToday

Adamtachew is doing great! Before seeing the doctor, Adamtachew told us he is looking forward to playing soccer and running with his friends! He has not done those things yet because he was afraid of falling with his brace on. Dr. Mesfin granted his wish! He told him that he can stop wearing his brace and play with his friends and run around! We will see him in six months for another checkup!

Nathenael is looking great today and rocking that scarf! Today he had a plate removal and it went really well, and now he is resting peacefully in the ward!

Youmali from NigerToday

Youmali's surgery went wonderfully! He's currently hanging out in the ward, recovering. He'll be in a little pain and discomfort for a bit, but he's a step closer to literally taking uninhibited steps!

It's another bandage change day for Nafiou which means we're really just running around the waiting area and playing games!

Rachidou from NigerToday

Rachidou is going in for another surgery today! The plan today is to release the skin strand that is tying his chin down to his torso. Doing this will give him a whole bunch more freedom of movement!

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.
