April from the Philippines on Dec 06, 2018
The surgery slowed down April a bit, and it was a weird feeling for her to not be moving as fast as she usually does. We expected it as part of her recovery process, but we know that in just a few days, she'll be back to her normal speed––with caution of course! So for now, Papa Jun gets to assist her as she wants to "go over here, be over there, stand here, look out there." She still wants to go around and will have plenty of time to do so as she travels back home today!

Hilda from the Philippines on Dec 06, 2018
Pastor Loloy and Janice from Seeds of Dignity, one of our partners in the field, stopped by to visit Hilda this morning. Her legs were a bit sore, so she had a couple ice packs handy to help with pain. It's a different kind of pain though, the one that actually heals. As we spent time with Hilda today, she knew that she's not going through this healing process alone even when she's going to continue healing at home!

It seems like such a small procedure, but amputation revisions have a lot of small, important steps. In April’s case, it involved trimming the extra skin at the bottom of her leg, then cutting back her leg bone so it won’t “poke” the bottom of her leg. This step took some effort, her little bones are incredibly strong! But, mission accomplished, now she just needs to heal for a few months, then she’ll be ready for her prosthetic, then we'll see how fast she can really run!

Christmas came early for our OR staff, we have a new C-Arm x-ray machine! After months of dealing with the temperamental old one, Dr. Shelley and the rest of the staff are in love with the new addition to the team! Hilda had her femur straightened and plated, which will allow her to finally begin to heal. The C-Arm reassured Dr. Shelley that everything exactly was where it should be before Dr. Ray Ray stitched her surgical site. We are so grateful to our donors for making this possible!

Hilda from the Philippines on Dec 04, 2018
Since Hilda’s motorcycle accident happened on November 9th, she hasn’t been able to move or go anywhere without feeling any pain. She’s happy to have surgery, but is also nervous to go through with it. Dr. Shelley checks her breathing to make sure that she’s all good to go for tomorrow’s procedure. Leah tells us that she can “only pray for God’s hands to be in the procedure,” and we are inviting you to pray with her!

Even though it’s 85 degrees outside, April was in the Christmas spirit, bundled up under her snowflake print fleece blanket. It didn’t take her long to warm up to the staff, and we discovered quickly that she’s very ticklish! Tomorrow is a big day for April, she will have her surgery, and soon will stand tall for the first time! Please keep her and her family in prayer!

Johan from the Philippines on Dec 03, 2018
Johan was in for his cast change today, and in between, spent time gazing out the window at the big city below. “I see an airplane, trucks, an orange bulldozer, and…dinosaur eggs!” he told us with a giggle. We saw the first three, but we’re not sure about the last! Even though he’s really not keen on cast changes, he’s been able to maintain his sense of humor and fun attitude. Mom Love tells us she can really see the changes happening in his feet, so the castings are doing their job!

Ann Rose from the Philippines on Dec 03, 2018
Ann Rose's casts were finally removed and the result is two almost perfect straight feet! We say almost because her healing is not over yet. Walking with clubfoot for 12 straight years, she will need to re-train her muscles to walk clubfoot-free. This means Ann Rose needs to be intentional with stretching and exercising––two steps to becoming fully healed! Thankfully, our doors are open for Ann Rose to have physical therapy as we walk with her on this next step of training!

Nurse Miay, who happens to be Althea's favorite nurse, tags along during her cast change. She opened her new book and muffin that was bought by Nurse Miay herself––which explains why she is her favorite nurse! With Althea's sweet, funny, and sassy personality, we sure want to shower her with presents, so she's encouraged throughout her healing!

Alzayn from the Philippines on Dec 03, 2018
We pulled a paparazzi shot on Alzayn today since he wanted to only play with grandpa in the playroom. So this is a quick photo of them interacting as we left them to have quality time before Alazyn got recasted. His foot looked better but he's not quite done yet! We'll see this grandpa and grandson duo again next week!

Windel from the Philippines on Nov 29, 2018
We had a visit from the crew of Jollibee today, and they brought lunch for all of our patients! Unfortunately, Windel missed all of the excitement, he was crashed out hard under his bed sheets, still recovering from yesterday’s surgery. We left food on his bed so it’d be waiting when he woke up! Windel is still dealing with some pain, but not enough to keep him at Tebow CURE Hospital any longer, so he and the rest of the family will head home in the morning.

Johan from the Philippines on Nov 29, 2018
Johan convinced his caretakers and mom to bring him to clinic again today, even though his check up isn’t until next Monday! He just missed hanging out with us, and he picked the best day to come! Maddie, the daughter of our admissions clerk, had a birthday today and wanted to share with all of our clinic attendees. After she checked to make sure Johan was healthy, he was served fried chicken, his favorite food! We’ll see him next Monday for his actual check up.

Victor from the Philippines on Nov 29, 2018
Would you look at that sweet face? After crying without any tears, we came to the conclusion that Victor was bored and didn't know what to do in the ward. So we brought him up to the playroom where his half laugh and half cry turned into a huge grin. We figured that sleeping all morning gave him all the energy to play as he gets ready to head home. It'll be a long journey back for Victor but at least he's going through this healing process with his big brother Windel by his side!

Dustin from the Philippines on Nov 29, 2018
It looks like Dustin is back on track with his normal speed, moving so fast that his mom says, "I just can't keep him still." Unfortunately, a mild infection slowed him down a bit, so we prescribed antibiotics to help him get back to his top speed and pain free! We'll see him on Monday and help him clean his wound until the infection clears up! Your support to Tebow CURE allows us to serve kids like Dustin even during minor set backs like this.

Cheryl from the Philippines on Nov 29, 2018
Cheryl's casts came off today and she didn't even shed a tear! She upgraded to a pair of braces, which need to be on her feet for most of the day. Being consistent with wearing the braces is the hardest part of her treatment, especially for kids her age. But we will keep track of Cheryl's healing to make sure that she remains clubfoot-free!
