Recent Patient Updates
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 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!
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'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 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 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!

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
