Alamanzan from Uganda on 3 days ago
Spiderman is Alamanzan’s new name given to him by the nursing staff due to him climbing all over the hospital! Wednesday night he was a climbing on his bed in the ward and fell off it. The ICU’s beds where he spent last night are like cribs which were able to keep Spiderman in. Yesterday’s operation went smoothly and Alamanzan’s recovery is going very well, he is active and playful trying his best to escape the confines of his crib. He has befriended a few of the ICU nurses who gave him an inflated glove which they have been playing catch with. Maria is feeling relieved, she is happy the operation is over and is no longer stressed. Maria would like prayer for Alamanzan, “Pray for the child to get well and maintain his milestones."

“I’m very worried,” said Maria. Alamanzan is currently in surgery where Dr. Peter is performing an ETV/CPC. In a few hours Alamanzan should be transferred to the ICU where he will be reunited with his mother. Immaculate from the spiritual department met with Maria today and she counseled her and tried to encourage her. “I prayed that the child would grow up well and the surgery would go well, and that they would go home with a testimony,” said Immaculate. Please join Immaculate in praying for Alamanzan that his operation will be successful and for him to have a swift recovery!

Britney from Uganda on Dec 05, 2018
“Britney is fine. I am praying to God that the path will work - the ETV,” said Catherine. She spoke about how God has given her strength to take care of Britney and if she didn’t have the grace of God she would have given up on Britney a long time ago. Britney is doing well and being transferred out of the ICU today. Catherine will meet with some of the nurses today to make sure Catherine knows how to do clean intermittent catheterization (CIC). Britney’s doctors are optimistic that if Britney continues to improve well they may go home tomorrow. Catherine has been enjoying the chapel services which have been an encouragement to her. She has also made a couple of friends to pass the time with. Please be praying for Britney to keep recovering well from surgery!

Ashim from Uganda on Dec 03, 2018
To break the boredom of waiting to see a doctor in the outpatient department, Ashim played catch with an American football in front of the hospital until he got tired and switched to playing with building blocks. Ashim returned today for a follow up appointment to see how he was doing with a lower dose of anticonvulsants. He is doing well with no seizures so his doctors feel comfortable stopping his anticonvulsants. Ashim is now out of school for Christmas break and the family coffee harvest has finished. He will come back to the hospital in June, please continue to pray for Ashim to keep doing well!

On Saturday, Britney and Catherine arrived at CURE Uganda and were admitted. Yesterday they got settled in and attended the chapel service for the families in the hospital which Catherine enjoyed. Her church back home is aware that they are at the hospital and have been praying for them. Today Britney is getting a CT-scan done and a plan is being made for her. Britney is well liked by the moms in her section and by the staff. She has already made friends with nurse Ruth who was taking care of her today. Britney was interested in the thermometer and Ruth showed her what temperature she had. Please keep Britney in your prayers that her time at the hospital will go well!

Oliver from Uganda on Nov 28, 2018
Today Oliver went in for an ETV/CPC procedure, which was successful, and he has been transferred to ICU. Mama Oliver spent time in the activity room painting her nails and chatting with other mothers. She said that helped to distract her from thinking about baby Oliver who was in the Operating room. “I get very worried, so I needed to be busy” she said. Her husband called and informed her that he is praying and thinking about them while he is at work. Please join them in praying for a successful recovery and stability while he is in ICU.

His mother regularly feeds him with both baby formula and milk and also spends time chatting with fellow moms in the ward. He is being closely monitored and will be in surgery as soon as he is stronger. Please remember him in your prayers.

She and Isaac will have an eight-hour trip to their home town of Gulu and we will review Isaac in January 2019.

Isaac has finished Day One of a five day antibiotics regiment. His fever is now gone, and he is feeding well. Some of Nancy’s friends were discharged and she said that she will miss their company. She spent some time in the play room with the other mothers and attended devotions. We hope that by the end of the weekend Isaac will be much healthier.

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.
