“I will be at CURE until she gets a new shunt”, Prossy said with a sound of relief as she no longer has to worry about all the troubles that would be involved with traveling home and back to the hospital in a relatively short amount of time. Leila is still on antibiotics, but is getting stronger each day. Prossy said today she will spend time in the activity room since Leila isn’t irritable anymore!

“The first day Ezra went to the OR, I was scared, but now I am used to it. When they told me yesterday that he would be going for another operation this morning, I didn’t get scared or worried, but I prayed and I think that is why I feel strong and confident”, Anna said. She communicated to her family back home in northern Uganda and they are praying for Ezra too. Dr. Justin decided to go straight for a shunt placement. The operation was successful and Ezra is now recovering in ICU!

Leila from Uganda on Feb 14, 2019
Leila had a peaceful and calm night in ICU. All her vitals are stable. Her mother Prossy says that she slept well because Leila wasn’t irritable. Her surgeon said that Leila will need another shunt placement in the next seven to fourteen days. When Prossy learned about this she said, “I hope we stay at CURE until she gets her new shunt." Leila will be transferred back to the ward today and she still continues with her antibiotics. Please be praying for her.

“Elizabeth is still weak, feeding through the NG tube, and vomiting. I have to be with her all the time." Maureen says. "When I try to have her sit, she cries like she is in a lot of pain, but the nurses are taking good care of her. I also told the nurses that I am pregnant, and they said that they will take care of me too." Today, Dr. Justin said that he will review Elizabeth's brain CT scan and the lab reports before making a plan will be move forward. Please keep praying for baby Elizabeth.

Leila’s shunt was replaced today, she is now in ICU where she will continue with her antibiotics. Prossy spent most of the day sleeping. She said, “we have had many sleepless nights because she has been very restless and crying so much, so now that she is in theatre I am also going to sleep well. I won’t do anything else, just sleeping!” Please be praying for Leila as she spends her night in ICU and peace for her mom Prossy!

Currently Ezra is taking anticonvulsants, he has already had his CSF analyzed and a plan is being made for his surgery. “All I ask is for your prayers for healing,” Anna told us. She has settled in and has updated her family about what is going on about Ezra’s surgery. Please remember both of them in prayer.

Since last evening, Elizabeth has not been feeding well so our nurses decided to insert an NG tube to aid her in getting the nourishment that she needs. She was very irritable during the night but is calm this morning. Dr. Justine ordered that they be taken to the labs for several tests to be run and also for another brain CT scan to be done to ascertain the cause of her not progressing. Please keep her in your prayers.

Today is Helen’s second day after her ETV/CPC procedure and she is responding well! She is feeding well too. “Her head is not as soft as it was before the surgery, I can feel like it is getting normal and she no longer cries as much as she used to,” Rashida shared. They were discharged this morning and will be reviewed in March at a mobile clinic in Kampala. Please be praying for them for safe travels back home and for continued improvement in Helen’s health!

Leila from Uganda on Feb 12, 2019
“When I took Leila to a health center for the stitches to be removed, the nurse didn’t do a good job. The following day I realized that there was a wound and ever since then it has been gradually deepening, causing Leila a lot of pain. She is always crying and is restless so when I finally got money for transport I immediately came back,” Prossy told us. She arrived at CURE Uganda with the 3 o’clock bus and immediately she was clerked by our social workers and sent to see Dr. Michael who said, “I am going to start Leila on very strong antibiotics because her shunt is already infected and discharging pus. We shall see if she can have surgery as soon as tomorrow to remove it. We shall also take a sample of her cerebrospinal fluid and send for analysis today.” Leila is now admitted, and we are waiting for what the medical team agrees on about the way forward to make her healthy again. Please be praying for little Leila!

Ezra from Uganda on Feb 12, 2019
“Three days after we were discharged is when I noticed that his head had again started to increase in size. I am tired of traveling to and from the hospital and I know that Ezra is tired too but there is nothing to do about that because he has to get well eventually,” Anna said. She took him to the Pentecostal Assemblies of God Hospital and it is from there that the doctor referred Ezra back to CURE Uganda. “I had not yet even settled down at home because we were at CURE just ten days ago. We need serious prayers,” Anna lamented. Ezra is having a brain CT scan today and then a plan will be made for his surgery. We encouraged Anna not to give up and shared from the Bible 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 which says, "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." Please join us as we pray for baby Ezra and encourage Anna!

Elizabeth from Uganda on Feb 12, 2019
“Elizabeth played through most of the night, it is unbelievable that just yesterday she had brain surgery. Even this morning after feeding she started playing with the wires that connected her to the machines, so the nurses were always on alert,” Maureen said. She added that she hasn’t informed her folks back at home about Elizabeth’s operation because “they worry too much’ and she hopes to inform them when Elizabeth is out of ICU which may be today. She will be transferred to the general ward before midday. We give God the glory and are thankful for your prayers!

“She (Helen) cried a little bit in the night but this morning she has been calm,” Rashida said. She spent her morning doing her laundry and also called her husband to update him about Helen’s condition. Helen will be transferred back to the ward where she will be monitored by the nurses. Please continue praying for her and her mother Rashida!

“Swaibu is doing really well, he hasn’t disturbed us since we were discharged," Shamim shared. They showed up today for their follow-up appointment and Swaibu was reviewed by Dr. Michael. He did several checks and ordered that the wound on his back be dressed. Other than the dressing of his wound, Swaibu’s health was found to be gradually improving and Shamim says she is still strong in her faith! After the dressing change, mother and child headed back home and he will be reviewed again in March. Please continue praying for him!

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.
