Andrew from Zambia on Today
Andrew woke up feeling low, mainly due to the pain he is experiencing after the operation yesterday. His toes appear slightly swollen so the upper part of his cast has been cut to give the swollen area some expansion space, nonetheless he is generally doing well!

Gift from Zambia on Yesterday
Gift went home on the 20th of December 2017. His caregiver Jenipher was taught on how to treat his sores. He was supposed to come back on the 8th of January 2018 for a checkup but hasn’t been back quite yet. We hope to see him soon!

So today Andrew was in a joyful mood, as he played with his friends in the ward early in the morning! However, his playtime was short lived, for he had to go for surgery this morning. His surgery was rescheduled to today because yesterday there was a complication with a patient who was scheduled before him. Our doctors have removed a bone from his right foot to create room to straighten his foot and we're happy to say that the surgery went very well! We wish him a quick recovery and we urge everyone to continue praying for him!

Gift is doing well today. His sores are healing and he is wearing less and less bandages this week! Good sign! Gift along with other kids in the ward got their faces painted today! A local ministry was visiting our hospital and they brought clowns, drinks and face painting to cheer up our kids. We're so thankful for people like them and for you, our supporters, that step in to help and love the children we serve! Please be praying for speedy healing for Gift and for the sores on his feet.

Elizabeth is not going anywhere yet because a last minute check-up was made that showed that she needs to be monitored. She may need to go back to the theater next week, and she didn’t like hearing this. She was not her usual smily self today, so she spent most of the day sleeping. Please be praying for peace for Elizabeth and that she comes to terms with staying at the hospital a little longer.

Sam went to the theater today. He wasn’t very excited about it mostly because he was hungry, but also because he was going to be separated from his mom for a little while. The operation itself went well. Doctor Lastroni couldn’t quite understand what the previous surgeon was going for because some incisions didn’t seem consistent with ones used in the process to correct Bilateral clubfoot. He is glad to start these series of surgeries to help Sam properly use his feet some day. Sam is now in recovery and this phase of recovery is anticipated to last about six weeks before the next phase can begin. Please be praying for Sam and his mom as they navigate this first stage of healing.

Because of Gift's condition, he has stayed in the hospital longer than most of our other kids. This has given him time to develop friendships with almost all the kids here! He is not sad when his friends come and go and then new kids come, he is just excited to make more and more friends! We love his heart! Please be praying for Gift as he is healing from bed sores he developed while in recovery at home and that he would quickly move to the next stage of his healing.

After going to theater for some time last week, Elizabeth is recovering very well! She likes to spend time in bed since she can't move around much in her casts but she makes the most of it- making people laugh and entertaining herself! Please be praying for Elizabeth and her family.

Chrispin is back to CURE! He didn’t do too well with braces, so he went back on casts for a week. Here, his mom uses the water bath method to take off casts and after Chrispin's review today, the doctors have decided to put him back in the braces. This has made his mom happy. Please be praying for this family as they navigate this process of healing.

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.
