“We shall wait and see the outcome of the operation, but I'm not scared,” Esther said. After Abdul was taken into surgery, Esther and the rest of the mothers in the ward spent time in the activity room painting their nails. She sent her family texts updating them about the surgery. Please keep praying for them!

“Mary will be okay, I see change in her. She can play a little,” said Alex. “This is nice, life is back, things are not like they were. Getting better - not so bad but still sick, but 50/50 at least. Today we will continue antibiotics, physiotherapy, and she is on anticonvulsants,” said clinical officer Esther. Esther has been encouraging Alex to do more exercises with Mary and to take her outside into the fresh air and sunshine. Mary still has ten days of antibiotics, a plan hasn’t been made yet for what will happen after that. Please be praying for Mary to continue to improve.

This morning Dr. Peter told Zipporah that Okello will have surgery Monday or Tuesday which she is feeling okay about. Okello has been jolly as usual all morning as he continues to make friends in the ward. He also got to play with Dr. Kung during the ward rounds. Yesterday there was a guest speaker who shared about her child who has hydrocephalus and it was an encouragement to Zipporah on how to take good care of her child. Please be praying for Okello to have a successful surgery next week!

“I just realized a few days back that her head had increased and some people who came to my house told me the same. It wasn’t easy for me to notice the increase because her hair was grown,” Esther said. The doctors were planning to operate on Abdul today, but her mother breastfed her, so the surgery was postponed to tomorrow. Esther says that Abdul no longer responds nor makes sounds when she speaks to her and that is worrying her. She also cannot move her head anymore. “I have researched a lot about hydrocephalus through the internet, I even visited cure.org and read about children who had hydrocephalus but are now doing well so I hope that Abdul responds positively to the surgery," Esther says. Please keep praying for Abdul and Esther.

“We didn’t have a good night, she was vomiting and had convulsions. This morning God has helped us, and she is fair now,” Alex shared. Alex was surprised this morning when his ex-wife called after seven, she was asking about Mary. Our medical team is treating the convulsions and she is also taking antibiotics. Mary’s drain was also removed by Dr. Noah and she is currently in the ward. Please keep her in prayer.

Miracle from Uganda on 3 days ago
“When I remember how much I used to cry when Miracle was here in ICU and when I see her now I just give thanks to God. I now have peace. I just pray for her and observe how she is growing," Annet said. After review, Miracle was found with no concerns. The doctors ordered that she get a Renal Ultrasound scan, CIC materials and to do some physiotherapy. Annet was so tired from last night’s journey to CURE Uganda so she plans to travel back home tomorrow when she is stronger. We thank God for Miracle's progress and for you who's prayers and support make it possible!

Okello from Uganda on 3 days ago
“Okello is awaiting surgery. I am not worried about the surgery, in fact I just want it to be done once and for all. I want to see what he will look like without the swelling on his face,” Zipporah said. Okello is really having his own fun, people around the hospital like to carry him and this morning he was just playing on his bed with his mother. The devotions in the afternoons are the highlight of Zipporah’s day’s here, she says she enjoys it so much. Please pray for wisdom as doctors prepare him for surgery.

“We will take some blood, do a scan. We might remove the drain today,” said Dr. Peter to Alex. “Mary will be okay, even I am okay. She just had little things like a fever - not vomiting - only hot, (she is) eating well, drinking well,” said Alex. Mary has been struggling with low potassium so her doctors are running more blood work today and a CT-scan to look at how her brain is doing, if they remove her external drain she will be able to go back to the ward. Please be praying for Mary to recover well from this operation and soon be healthy enough for her next surgery.

Geofrey from Uganda on 3 days ago
“Thank you for your work,” said Everlyne to the staff. This morning Dr. Peter told her they could go home. She then went to the ICU dorm for the parents and told father Geofrey the good news. When she entered the ICU dorms she was greeted by all the mothers, "Mama Geofrey, Mama Geofrey, Hey Mama Geofrey!" Everlyne has made many friends in the hospital during their stay. “I’m going home, I’m happy,” said Geofrey. Baby Geofrey finished his antibiotic regiment today so they were allowed home and given a follow up date when he will hopefully have his next operation. Please keep them in your prayers that Geofrey will be healthy enough for surgery!

“Today he is very okay, today they transfer us this side. (out of ICU) That is what we like,” said father Geofrey. Everyone in Geofrey’s family seems to be in high spirits, his sister is doing well and both of his parents are happy to be moving out of the ICU. According to Everlyne he had a good night and she is confident that he will be fine. Please be praying for Geofrey that he will recover swiftly from his operation!

Mary from Uganda on Aug 14, 2018
Yesterday, Mary had her shunt removed due to an infection and she also had a procedure called irrigation. She spent the night in ICU and was calm. She is feeding well, and Alex told us that “she doesn’t cry”. Alex managed to call home and was told that his firstborn Francis is doing well. Our doctors are preparing Mary for a possible CT scan today which will guide them on what step to take next. For now she is still in ICU, please keep her and Alex in prayer!

“Brother is now back from the theatre but he will be fine,” said Everlyne to Florence, Geogrey’s twin sister. Today Geofrey went into surgery for an irrigation of the ventricles, the same procedure he had in June unfortunately his cerebral spinal fluid was still bloody. His doctors had hoped that the fluid would have been clear by now. Over the last couple weeks, Geofrey has been sick but now seems to be doing much better. Today father Geofrey and Everlyne went to the afternoon chapel service while baby Geofrey slept in the ICU. Please keep Geofrey in your prayers that his CSF fluid will be clear in order to allow his doctors to do his next operation.

“The pastors have been very helpful, they have been praying with me every day that God gives me the grace to take care of Mary and Francis. Even just this morning, Pastor Winnie came and prayed with me,” Alex says. Alex and another guy named Geofrey are the only fathers we have in the ward, but Alex is managing to take care of Mary just fine. He does the laundry, feeds her and attends devotions together with other moms in the ward and spends most of his time with Geofrey. Please be praying for Alex and Mary.

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.
