Loveness was happy to receive a gift from the Samaritan's Purse today! Meanwhile, she has an appointment with the doctor for another procedure this Friday. We pray all works well!

Kedija is here with us for her operation, unfortunately her operation got cancelled because of the busyness in the OR. If the operation room is not that busy, she will have her surgery tomorrow or it will be scheduled on Thursday! The good thing is, she loves the ward and she is having fun!

Natarino from MalawiToday

We finally got a profile picture with Natarino smiling big! He seems pretty enthusiastic that his casts are off for now! During ward rounds the doctors instructed to have them taken off so they can see whether he's ready for his surgery, but they have been busy and haven't checked out his feet yet, so he's really enjoying feeling the air on his feet for now! He was also sticking out his tongue for the camera - he seems to have picked up that habit from his friend Donata!

Pearson from MalawiToday

Pearson has a great smile, but he's not the only one in the septic bay stuck in bed with an amazing grin despite it! Gift and John are also there (as well as Gladys and Martin, who are pretty smiley themselves) and demanded we take their photos too when we went in to get a photo of Pearson for a status update! Please be praying for all our kids with bone infections!

Boniface from MalawiToday

Boniface is all over again today - he came on ward rounds with us this morning - and Dr. Lubega picked him up and tickled him, great fun! Then later we found him crawling around the bike outside with Telesifolo. And just now we saw him stamping around the kitchen with Joseph and Dalitso!

Joseph from MalawiToday

Jo-jo is looking like he's feeling a lot better today! He's been running around and smiling, and only cried a tiny bit during ward rounds because he's a bit nervous around the doctors (we don't blame him). Today he was hanging out with Dalitso and Boniface near the kitchen while their mums helped prepare some greens for lunch! He decided to explore the CURE Cafe while he was in the area!

Calvine from MalawiToday

Someone is on the big boy bike today! Calvine was walking around physio and looking interested in the bike so we put him up there and pushed him around for a bit and he had a blast! Afterwards, we tried to take him down (we weren't sure if he could get down by himself) but every time we tried he started to cry, even when we distracted him with the camera first! Finally we left him up there for a few minutes (the physios kept an eye on him) and went to the ward, and by the time we got back he was bored of sitting on his perch and happily let us take him down!

Donata from MalawiToday

Donata's foot is coming around well! Dr. Mak was impressed during ward rounds. Hopefully in another week we can take the frame off - so exciting! Here's her classic face for the camera - we're not sure if you've actually seen it yet since she has such an amazing smile that we usually showcase instead!

Patsani from MalawiToday

Patsani came in for a checkup today! Dr. James says her wound and bone is healing well now and she'll be back in two months for another checkup, and by then, hopefully she'll be readmitted to have her frame off! Be praying! She told us she's doing well!

Another day, another photo of Baraou with his tongue sticking out. As soon as the camera comes out, this guy is making faces and cracking himself up!

With no physical therapy or ointments today, the only thing on Souraya's to-do list today is to have a run around and enjoy being a kid!

Zeinabou is back with us! With her right leg looking nice and straight, it's time to tackle the left leg. We sure are happy to have this smiling face back here!

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.
