Both Okello and his mother Zipporah are fighting a bad cough and flu. They are being treated for that and therefore Okello's surgery will have to wait until next week. Zipporah said, "I'm very happy because I now have hope that my child will soon be fine." Please pray with us that God will heal Okello completely!

Asanti from Uganda on Today
Asanti had a few hours extubated yesterday before her condition worsened and her doctors decided to intubate her again. They had concerns of an upper airway obstruction and decided the best course of action was a tracheostomy. They told Ramula the need for Asanti to have a tracheostomy but she refused to sign off on the operation, however during the night she met with a few nurses and agreed to the surgery. Today Dr. Ricky was called in to perform the operation and he was eagerly assisted by Dr. Peter and Dr. Justin. The operation went well and Asanti is now back in the ICU. Ramula is struggling with the amount of time they have spent in the hospital and really wants to get home. This morning and afternoon Immaculate from the Spiritual Center met with Ramula and tried to encourage her. Please be praying for Asanti that she will improve and for strength for her aunt!

“I’m going to thank God I’m healed,” said Sophia. This morning Dr. Peter told Sophia and Katrah they could go home. "I am happy to finally go home and be able to go back to school. Thank you CURE!” Sophia said. After they received the news they went out and washed their things in preparation for leaving, Katrah did most of the washing while Sophia was more in a supervising role with her doll and sister’s phone. Over the last couple of days Sophia has received a few of your get well messages which has made her very excited! We will see Sophia again in just over a month when she returns to CURE for a follow up appointment. Please continue to pray for her!

Winnie from Uganda on Yesterday
“Seeing my child’s condition getting better every day makes me regret the thought I had of throwing her away. I love her more every single day!” said Winnie. She also adds that she finally got the courage to inform her family about baby Winnie and her condition, and surprisingly the family took the news well and are encouraging her! “Having my family support makes me stronger,” mama Winnie said with a very happy face.

Asanti from Uganda on Yesterday
We are thankful to God that Ramula is feeling much better today. Dr. Agatha, Dr. Fred, and nurse Caren extubated Asanti and placed her on an oxygen mask. She is under close observation and if she continues to breathe well, she will not be intubated again. Her electrolytes have improved and she has been tolerating feeding through her NG tube. Please keep Asanti in your prayers that she will continue to improve.

“When my sister was in the theater, I was praying that her surgery goes on well and God answered my prayers,” Katrah said. After the surgery, she was taken to ICU and during the night she did not have any complications apart from a slight headache. Sophia needed a new cannula because hers had become blocked, however she despises needles and wasn't about to get pricked again so she ran out of the ward and into a courtyard to prevent her nurse from placing a new cannula. Unfortunately for her, an hour later the nurses won out and a cannula was placed and a line is being run. Today, Sophia and Katrah's brother Fred and mother Harriet came to the hospital. Sophia got to eat mangos with them while she was getting IV medication. “I want to go home and eat chicken,” is what Sophia has been telling Katrah! Let's continue praying for her so that she can be able to go home and eat her chicken!

Sophia from Uganda on 2 days ago
Sophia and her older sister Ketrah arrived at CURE over the weekend and have settled into the hospital. Sophia is a playful but shy girl and she likes hiding behind things such as her bed sheets, her two dolls, or even Ketrah when new people come to her bed! This afternoon, Sophia went into surgery for a parietal burr hole and evacuation of an epidural hematoma. Sophia is now in the ICU where she will recover tonight. Please be praying for a swift recovery for her!

Asanti from Uganda on 2 days ago
Asanti’s surgery went on well and the tumor was removed successfully. On Friday, she had a CT scan and the results were good, we give glory to God for that! She had a blood transfusion yesterday and since Thursday when she had her surgery, she is still in ICU because her condition is still critical so the doctors want to observe her until she becomes more stable. Her aunt Ramula hasn’t been feeling well since Friday, she has been having heartburn and whenever she tries to eat the pain gets worse. “Although I feel pain when I eat, I try to at least take something small so that I can be strong enough to take care of Asanti,” she told us. Please continue to keep them both in prayer for healing!

“I was generally dedicating the kid to God… praying for a successful surgery and even a quick recovery after the surgery,” said Nurse Filex. Prior to being taken to the operating room, Asanti’s nurse Filex prayed for her with her aunt Ramula. About an hour after Asanti was taken into the operating room, Immaculate from the Spiritual Center spent time with Ramula trying to encourage her. Asanti is still in surgery, Dr. Justin and Dr. Phu are performing a craniotomy and tumor removal. Please be praying for the operation to be successful.

Sunday is missing her daughter Caro who left for her father’s home because she was not able to cater for all her needs such as her school fees. After Wahaba and Sunday are discharged from the hospital, she wants to pay her a visit and spend some time with her daughter that she has not been able to see for the last three years now. Apart from the fact that Wahaba has developed a cough, his procedure site is doing fine. Please continue to pray for Wahaba's complete healing!

“Mothers should not wait for their child's situation to deteriorate before taking them to the hospital. As soon has you notice some anomaly on your child, bring them to the hospital, do not neglect or give up on your kid because that sickness can be treated and your child can have a normal life like so many other children. Bring your child at CURE Hospital Uganda,” said Mama Winnie. It’s a joy for mothers to see their children’s condition getting better while they are here and that they can encourage other women in similar situations. Thank you for your encouragement and prayers for our brave moms!

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.
