Adam from Uganda on Today
“My mother is doing a great job taking care of the children back at home,” Susan says. She called home and was told that everything is fine although she misses being with her family. The rains have come in her district, so she says her family is cultivating food. Susan was told by the doctors that after Adam finishes his dose of antibiotics he will be discharged but will need another surgery for hydrocephalus at a later date and Susan hopes that it won’t be long from now. This morning she spent some time in prayer with Immaculate from our Spiritual Center. Please continue to remember Adam in your prayers as well as he finishes his antibiotics.

Rickson from Uganda on Yesterday
“I’m feeling good, I’m feeling happy,” said Annette. This morning they are going home, both Annette and Rickson are very happy as they have been missing their family at home. Even though it was hard for Annette to be away from her other children, she has had a positive experience at CURE Uganda. “Every time there are prayers and words of encouragement they give you hope,” said Annette. Prior to leaving, Winnie from the Spiritual Center came by their bed to wish them well and prayed for them. Rickson's doctors have been encouraging Annette to do more physical therapy with Rickson to get him stronger and more mobile. Please be praying for Rickson that he will not need any more surgeries and for him to become physically stronger.

Adam from Uganda on Yesterday
“Adam is good, you can see that he is looking livelier. We are keeping him here to make sure he finishes the course of antibiotics. His mother told me to take good care of him while she goes to pray in the chapel,” Nurse Lydia said. Earlier this morning we spoke with Susan and she said, “I am noticing some improvement in Adam. I just feel low sometimes because my husband is no longer here with me.” Today is his fourth day out of a fourteen-day regiment of antibiotics. Please pray for patience and strength for both mother and child as we continue to treat Adam!

“Adam is improving, the wound is healing. It's not infected, it was a good thing to change (antibiotics) to meropenem,” said nurse Martha who is taking a care of Adam today. Adam will be on meropenem, his IV antibiotic, for a total of two weeks - today marks day three. Susan is doing well, she has been hanging out with her friends in the hospital while Adam has been resting.

“I feel good that the baby will be operated, on the other hand, I am also worried that I don’t know the outcome of the operation,” said Annette. This morning Annette and Rickson met with Winnie from the Spiritual Department and Annette shared their story with Winnie who then prayed for them and encouraged them. Rickson is currently in surgery where Dr. Peter is performing an OPM and ETV/CPC, once Rickson recovers he will be transferred to the ICU where he will spend the night. Please join Annette and Winnie in praying for Rickson and we invite you to share your encouragement to Annette and her kids too!

Adam from Uganda on 4 days ago
“Adam is good, he is now okay,” said Susan. Adam is recovering well from surgery, he has a good appetite and his doctors have no major concerns! After the surgery, Adam was switched to an IV antibiotic which he will take for at least another week. Although Susan and Adam will still be at the hospital for a while longer, their morale is high. Susan has been holding Adam in her arms and praying for long periods of time. “I have been praying to God to give him spare parts for the body,” said Susan. Along with her personal prayer time, she has been going to the chapel services and reading her Bible. Please join Susan in prayer that Adam will continue to improve from surgery!

“They are taking him to surgery. I have lifted it up to God each and everything. I have been praying that my God help us and the doctors,” said Susan. Adam has gone into surgery where Dr. John and Dr. Jacob attempted to do an ETV/CPC but the cerebrospinal fluid was too murky due to an infection, so they needed to do was a ventricular irrigation first. Adam will need the ETV/CPC done in the future when he is clear of infection. Please be praying for Adam to recover from this operation and for his next one to be successful.

“I have been praying for my baby to walk . . . to see very well, to have knowledge, to write and read,” said Mariam. She has been thinking a lot about having Michele start school at the beginning of 2019 but would like her to be able to walk. Michele doesn’t seem to have any problems, in her words, “I am goodo!” Michele got to sit outside and enjoy the morning sun while her mother did a couple tasks this morning. The only thing keeping them at the hospital is Michele’s antibiotics which in a few days will be completed. Please continue to pray for Michele that she will make a full recovery from surgery and be able to start school next year!

This morning during the ward rounds Dr. John said that Adam may have surgery for hydrocephalus as soon as tomorrow so that Susan and her husband can go home and look after the other children who are under the care of their grandmother. For Susan, this news came as an answered prayer because she has been thinking a lot about the children back at home. Susan’s husband Adam spent some time at the OPD watching music videos while Susan nursed Adam. Please keep praying that Adam’s planned surgery is a success!

Michele is continuing to improve, she is eating well and no longer having fevers. She has four more days of antibiotics and then she will hopefully get to go home! This morning Mariam attended part of a pastors meeting, she sang songs of worship before she was called back to the ward because Michele was crying. The area around Michele’s bed has become a place for socializing, Mariam has made several friends in the hospital including the ladies in her section. They spent most the day just talking and encouraging each other. Mariam has less to do at the hospital because Joyce Mary went back home yesterday and is staying with one of their neighbors. Please keep Michele in your prayers that she will feel better and in a few days get to go home!

“Adam had a good night and I know that he will be fine. My baby is starting to be normal,” Susan says. Her only concern is that she doesn’t have enough breastmilk and is worried as to whether Adam is being sufficiently fed. Our nurses have now put her on a diet of porridge which will help her produce more milk. Her husband is still here with her, he helps mostly with doing laundry and also gives Susan comfort. Adam is on his second day of antibiotics. Please keep him in prayer as he goes through his antibiotics regiment.

“Michele is now fair, the temperature is not that high,” said Mariam. Michele seems to be doing better than Monday because she has started an antibiotic regimen which has resulted in her fevers trending down. Mariam attended the staff devotions this morning which she enjoyed, she was taught about giving your burdens to God. Later in the day they went to the play room which Michele and Joyce enjoyed, they played with a couple toys one of which Michele called, “press the baby.” While the kids played, Mariam assembled a puzzle and got her nails painted. Please remember Michele in your prayers that she will no longer have fevers.

“My prayer request for Patience is for her to sit, to walk, to go to school, and have a good life,” said Nanteza. This morning Nanteza was told that Patience was being discharged! “I feel really good there is a change,” said Nanteza. Since Monday's operation Nanteza has noticed the pressure on the top of Patience’s head reducing which she is very happy about. Thank you for praying for Patience during her time at the hospital!

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.
