Activity for the week of Sunday, May 22
Margaret gets to go home today! Lucky girl! Please be praying for her as her leg still hurts a bit while she's healing! We're going to miss her smiling face! We also managed to upload the video of her mom and some other moms in physiotherapy yesterday praising God because their children can now walk!

Eda got a haircut earlier today! We miss her lovely thick hair, but it's more hygienic for the hospital to keep it short it seems! We asked her if CUREkids Coordinator Avanell (who has long blonde hair) should shave her own hair off and Eda said 'yes'! Avanell isn't convinced!
Edina's doing well today and was making friends with Rhoda, Felista and Silaji! These cute kids all love making faces for the camera! We're so glad to see Edina warming up to the hospital and making friends! If you want to see a video of the kids making funny faces go to https://youtu.be/DDHkg10NI_4
Silaji, Edina, Rhoda and Felista love running around outside - and making funny faces at the camera! Silaji had a wound check today and he's improving, but we're still going to keep an eye on him and dress it regularly!

Rhoda and Felista posed for another photo today! These two lovely girls, along with Edina and Silaji, had a great time doing a photo shoot together! Please be praying for Felista, she will be having a wound inspection tomorrow!

Florence has been crying frequently because of the pain. Florence's mama, Febby, has also been crying because Florence is crying. There is a whole lot of crying going on in our ward right now. To ease the pressure and reduce the tears, Ireen's mother is babysitting Florence and giving Febby some time to herself to heal and rest. Florence is here for some time and Febby is probably not accustomed to being away from her own mother who is back home for such a long time. Please pray with us that God will give Febby the grace and patience needed to be a strong support for Florence!
No more immobilizer for Roldan! In fact, he's been encouraged to move around with his walker and start bending his knees. In PT recently, he's working on bending each leg with some weight on it to help increase its strength and flexibility. It'll be a long road for his healing, but he's getting closer to the finish line one step at a time! Thanks for praying!
Guess who got a kick out of his PT session this week? Michael came to visit to start his exercising, even if he still has a cast on! He has a couple weeks until it comes off, but we're sure that he'll be ahead of the game once that happens since he's been moving well with it!
Myles hung out in her favorite spot in the playroom today where she found a lot of coloring books and crayons! But since she had to go into clinic to get her pins out, where she was very brave by the way, her time in the playroom got cut short. But that's not really a bummer because other than the fact that she's healed, she'll continue seeing us in PT, playing in the sand table and using her healed arm!
Our prayers have been answered and Archiel's family was able to gather the provisions needed to travel back for his follow-up. As you can see, the trip has been exhausting for our little buddy so once his cast was removed, he was already snoozing by the time he got to physical therapy. But no worries, Geremie learned home exercises for Archiel and received a brace as he continues recovering at home!
With her hair braided just like she wanted, Precious is back for a follow-up! The process of removing her casts was a little nerve wracking for her, which you would understand why if you heard the loud sound that goes off once the cast cutter gets switched on. Precious' little feet are so much lighter now that the casts are off though and then she was ready to go home! But before she "peaced out" of the hospital, she spent time in physical therapy playing with blocks while standing on her feet. Since she's young and playful, we think that she won't have a problem moving around at home at all, but we ask that you continue to pray for her as she learns how to stand and walk without losing her balance!

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
