Smiling helps patients remember the positive aspects of their experience while in the hospital! Treffy loves to smile and when she saw us, she gave us a nice one! Today her mum was ticking some boxes in a questionnaire from the nursing department concerning the quality of service offered in the CURE Kenya hospital. Later in the day, Treffy's cast will be removed and her condition assessed on the progress made. Let's pray that her clubfeet heal well!
While the burn or wound is healing, bacteria can get in and cause an infection. To avert this, the doctors advised Cosmas' dad, Gilbert, to watch out for redness outside the burn or wound, warm or hot skin to the touch and most importantly, swelling. Cosmas is healing well and was practicing combing his hair with his left hand more as he waits for his right one to heal. He has a soft tied bandage on with daily wound cleaning and dressing until the released area tissues have woven themselves back together. We bless the Lord for our medical team and chaplains for taking Cosmas through a successful procedure and are thankful for your prayers for Cosmas!
Cosmas went to the operating room and his burn contracture was released. Now his healing journey begins and we would like to invite you to specifically pray for a smooth healing! Sometimes because of the living conditions at home, and not paying keen attention to hygiene, some of kids healing from burn contracture come back with infections so please pray specifically for that so Cosmas will have a smooth healing process. Thank you!
“I see other kids walking and I desire that for my little girl. I just hope that she will be able to walk at some point in her life,” Violet told us. Treffy and her mum both need your prayers and encouragement. Please pray that Treffy will be healed and she will be able to walk! Please pray for Violet’s heart to remain peaceful and that her faith will be made stronger.

Rosaline and Tommy share a cubicle in the ward and they are friends. Seeing as they come from the same community, they speak the same language and that makes it a whole lot easier to communicate. Tommy is being treated for burn contractures. Both Tommy and Rosaline are going to be here a while and we thank God that they can keep each other company.
