Lonjezo from Malawi on 3 days ago
Lonjezo has been discharged! Turns out she had a ton of rush rods replaced, in both femurs and one of her tibias. She can now walk on her left leg, just not the right because of the fracture. Since she has brittle bones, Kyle said if her one leg can't support her, they'll need to find a wheelchair for her. The physios are going to work it out later today to see if they need to give her one or not. Please be praying for her as she heads home and comes back July 3rd!

Hooke from Malawi on 3 days ago
Hooke was having fun in the playroom today. He's learned the Chichewa word for "take a photo of me" (ndijumbule) and was asking us to take his photo! They're going to start the turns today, so please be praying for his continued happiness!

Lysan from Malawi on 3 days ago
Lysan's doing well! They gave him some pain meds this morning, and then checked out his graft. He was a bit loopy after, but now he's up and alert and was having a blast in the playroom again.

It's day one post op and Lonjezo isn't crying anymore, but she doesn't exactly look happy to be here either - she was in the physio department and we bet she wasn't looking forward to therapy!

Hooke from Malawi on 4 days ago
Margalita is such a dedicated mom, and we see her almost every day helping out Hooke with his physiotherapy - which he doesn't seem to mind a bit, fortunately! Physio Diana was teaching her how to do some stretches with him. Please be praying for him when turns start in a few days - they're often the painful part of the whole frame process and he might not be quite as cheery once they start.

Diyana from Malawi on May 25, 2017
CUREkids Coordinator, Funny, spoke to Diyana and her mommy Brenda today! Brenda says she's happy and that Diyana's feet are improving, so she has no complaints! Please continue to pray for Brenda and Diyana.

Lysan from Malawi on May 25, 2017
Lysan's still not back to his usual cheery self, but he did manage to get into the playroom with the other kids and was sitting on the floor watching Megamind!

Lonjezo from Malawi on May 24, 2017
Lonjezo had a successful surgery today! Dr. Karolina and Dr. Nicholas cut her bone to make it straight and then put a rush-rod through to stabilize the bone and keep it in place. Lonjezo is recovering now, but is in a lot of pain, so please be praying that the painkillers the nurses gave her will kick in and that she'll feel better soon.

No smiles from our buddy Lysan today - he's just been lying in bed looking sad for most of the day, so please pray that he'll start feeling better soon and get his smile back! He'll be in the hospital for a while and has a wound inspection next week.

Evelista from Malawi on May 24, 2017
Evelista's back for some physiotherapy and will be here again on May 31st for some more! CUREkids Coordinator Funny asked her how she was doing and she just smiled really big! After some coaxing, she said sometimes she has pain, sometimes not - she slept on her leg wrong and had some pain after that but now it's better!

Hooke from Malawi on May 24, 2017
Hooke was doing some physiotherapy today! He was really enjoying swinging around, using mostly his arms on the bars! Margalita isn't afraid anymore and she's looking a lot happier, thank you all for praying for her!

Felia from Malawi on May 24, 2017
Felia was discharged this morning! Apparently they gave her the injection as a test to see if it would help, and if it works, she might have another more permanent muscle release of some kind in the future. Please be praying for her, she'll be back June 19th!

Alinafe from Malawi on May 24, 2017
Yesterday evening we heard lots of giggling right outside our office so we went out to check who it was! Turns out it was Praise and Alinafe! Both of these cuties went early this morning with the doctors to get AFOs to keep their feet in place. Please be praying for them!

Lysan from Malawi on May 23, 2017
Lysan had his operation today and it looks like it's going well! Dr. Lubega and Dr. Baow released the burn contracture on his wrist to straighten it out, and are then going to cover it with a graft from his upper arm or potentially his leg - please be praying for him as he recovers, skin grafts are not fun!

Lonjezo from Malawi on May 23, 2017
Lonjezo is having her next operation tomorrow! Please be praying for her as she has yet another rushrod. It's tough for kids with osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones), since they're always outgrowing the rush rods in their bones and needing new ones, it means lots of operations, but Lonjezo handles it all with such grace!

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
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.
