Manuel from Malawi on Today
Manuel came in for a wound inspection today! We didn't manage to find the doctor who saw him to ask him how he's doing, but we suspect it's still looking a bit nasty because he's been marked down for a review in two weeks! Please be praying for him!

Margaret from Malawi on Today
Margaret came in for a checkup and some physiotherapy today with her mom! She's doing well, but the physiotherapy students say she still needs to keep on using her crutches. She won't need another operation anytime soon, but she still needs to be diligent with her walking exercises. We'll see her again April 3rd!

Thokozani from Malawi on Yesterday
Guess who's back in the hospital! Thokozani is here to have his frame off after about six months! We bet he can't wait! We made a little promo video about him to celebrate the occasion! https://youtu.be/M75F3lowXwg

Sofiati from Malawi on Yesterday
Sofiati is was really happy this morning, but unfortunately we didn't think to grab a photo of her and she's been passed out asleep all afternoon! You can see her in bed in the background. Fortunately, her mom and her mom's friends were all around her bed and our other adorable friend, Margret, was there to steal the spotlight while Sofi slept. Margret's getting casted for clubfoot - unfortunately her legs are too chubby so the casts keep falling off so she's being kept in the hospital to monitor and change them more frequently! She's a very happy baby!

Faith from Malawi on Yesterday
Faith was back today for more physio! We went out to say hi and as always she grabbed my arms with her sweaty palms! I teased her a bit and asked her if she licked them and her auntie, who doesn't speak English as fluently, started teasing along, miming licking her hands and pointing at Faith, saying the same thing in Chichewa! "She's lying!" Faith says... we're not so sure. Her cute baby brother Samuel was also there, he's getting very big!

Chisomo from Malawi on Yesterday
Chisomo's doing well! She's already on her third cast after having it changed this morning! She is still not a big fan of casting. Her agogo (granny) Dina is so faithful taking care of her! We're so grateful for all the grandparents who come in and take such good care of their grandchildren!

Tania from Malawi on Yesterday
Meet Tania! She's a sweet little girl who we first met at the Lilongwe Clinic a couple weeks ago. She's made the five hour journey down to Blantyre this week to have surgery to release her contracted fingers! Please be praying for her as she's having surgery first thing Monday morning! https://youtu.be/OOWk986JouE

Trinity from Malawi on Yesterday
Look how straight Trinity's legs are! She came in for a checkup and some physiotherapy and the therapists are happy with how she's walking and have discharged her! She'll probably come back to see the doctors again at some point in the next few years as she will eventually outgrow the current rushrods and need new ones, but in the meantime, her legs are on the straight and narrow and she's walking so well she doesn't need any more physio!

Lonjezo from Malawi on Yesterday
Lonjezo came in for some physiotherapy today! She was complaining of pain in one of her legs so the therapists sent her back to the doctors. Upon reviewing her x-rays they decided she needs a rushrod revision in that leg and will be readmitted on April 15th. Unfortunately kids with brittle bone disease need constant replacement of rushrods as they outgrow them, until they reach maturity. Please be praying for her!

Margret from Malawi on Yesterday
Margret's back for her double elevation osteotomy and soft tissue muscle releases later this week! We're so happy to see her again and her legs are already so much straighter than when she first came to us! Please be praying for her as she's back for round two!

Doreen from Malawi on Feb 16, 2018
Doreen is in for some more physical therapy and now that her bandages are off we decided it would be a good time for an after photo! It's amazing how much she's grown in the past 6 months and 1 week, but even more amazing is the change in her legs! We are so happy for her and although she's still having physiotherapy it's encouraging to see how far she's come!

Clement from Malawi on Feb 16, 2018
Clement is back! We've been seeing him two times a week now and Shadreck says his range of motion is getting a lot better! He's also gotten more confident in moving which is always a plus.

Faith from Malawi on Feb 16, 2018
Avanell: How are you? Faith: Fine. Avanell: How was physical therapy? Faith: Fine. Avanell: Is there anything else you would like to say? Faith: No. Faith isn't being very chatty today, but she looks happy and we're sure, sooner or later, she will start asking for another deck of playing cards again.

Chisomo from Malawi on Feb 15, 2018
Chisomo had her first cast change today and was a bit teary about it, so here's a photo while she was having fun and smiling! Every time we walk by her bed she yells "Azungu! Ndjumbule!" Azungu is the Chichewa word for a white person or foreigner, and ndjumbule means "take a photo of me"! She's so cute that we almost always oblige!

Bertha from Malawi on Feb 15, 2018
Bertha is back! She's not particularly smiley today, but she was putting EVERYTHING in her mouth - we took one of her shoes out of her mouth and she promptly picked up the clubfoot braces and started gnawing on those! Shadrek says she's doing well and will be back May 10th for another checkup!

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.
