Flossy from Uganda on Yesterday
Flossy is going to have surgery tomorrow for a tumor removal. Today Margret and Flossy have met with several doctors to explain the plan for tomorrow. Anesthesiologist Dr. Fred met with Margret and Flossy, he checked her breathing, vision, and explained that she would need to stop eating at midnight. He also explained when the operation is finished there will be many tubes attached to her. Later in the day, Dr. Noah showed Margret the scan of Flossy’s tumor, explained the procedure and answered questions. Flossy has been tired today and spent most of the day sleeping in bed. When she was awake she colored a couple pictures of dogs and cows, two of her favorite animals. Please be praying for Flossy that her operation will be successful and that she will recover well from it and be able to live a full life.

Flossy from Uganda on 2 days ago
Yesterday, Flossy’s brother Armstrong left CURE for Kampala because he has to return to school. Flossy got a little grumpy and was missing her siblings. Her mother ended up calling home and Flossy got to talk to them. “Flossy says she is tired of being in the hospital and she wants to go home,” said Margaret. This morning Flossy got a glove balloon that she played with for a while which cheered her up a bit. Please remember Flossy in your prayers today as she awaits her surgery.

Viola from Uganda on 3 days ago
“Viola has been crying all night. I think she feels pain from the incision site,” said Namubiru. Viola continues to be on antibiotics today and this marks her seventh day of 14 on them. Over the weekend, there was pus discharge from her incision site which was cleaned and redressed. Her doctors seem confident that the antibiotics will clear up the infection. Overall though, Nambiru, Viola, and Fausta had a quiet weekend. Their highlight was the church service. “I learned a lot from the sermon and praying to God for help. We also thanked Him for making these days,” said Namubiru. Namubiru is now healthy and able to take care of Viola on her own again. Because of this, Fausta is going home today. After her mother left, Nambiru spent some time with the other families in the ward and read a couple get well messages they received. Please continue to pray for Viola that her infection will go away and she won’t develop hydrocephalus.

“Viola is good going to ward,” said her nurse, Ruth. “There is some difference compared to yesterday. Yesterday she couldn’t nurse, today has tried,” said Namubiru and she continued, “I have been praying that my baby will be better and they will discharge us when the baby is healthy.“ Viola is now off oxygen, yesterday she was on and off oxygen as her nurses weaned her off and closely monitored her saturation levels. If there is room in the ward Viola will be transferred out of the ICU which Namubiru is very excited about. Please join Namubiru in praying for Viola to become healthy.

“I’m so scared,” said Prossy about Deo going into surgery today. This morning prior to surgery, Prossy got to meet with Winnie from the Spiritual Center, she counseled and prayed for Prossy. “My prayer is for God to reduce the problems,” said Prossy. Deo had an ventriculoscopy and septostomy done and the procedure went well, he is now in the PACU waking up from the operation.

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.
