Kenya - Age 14
"I am okay. The pain I felt yesterday has subsided!" Junior told us. He now has a knee brace to help stabilize his knee as he recovers. "Today, Pastor Emmy came around, and we got to talk about different Bible stories. The story I liked most was that of David and his courage." Junior added. We are grateful to God that Junior is not only getting physical healing but is also receiving spiritual nourishment through our team of chaplains. What are some scriptures you would send Junior today to encourage him through his recovery? Kindly send those through as Get Well Messages, and we will read them to him.
Kibet went to the operating room today for a wound check. The review was to ensure there was no infection around the area where the doctors operated on. While in the operating room recovery area, Kibet met Pauline, a nurse at CURE. Pauline, who works at the Post Anaesthesia Care Unit - PACU (A place where our children are kept a while after surgery to make sure they wake up nicely and are stable), takes her time to be by their side and encourage them when they wake up and are feeling strange. Thank you for praying for Kibet through his recovery period.
"I am comfortable he is in the right place for the healing and the transformation of his leg," Mr. Meli said while looking at Laban. Laban was not feeling very joyful today. He misses his friends at school and his family at home. Hopefully, he'll make new friends here at CURE Kenya during his time here. Please continue praying for his continuous castings in preparation for surgery.
Laban was a bit tense as he underwent his second casting today. This casting process is to help soften the leg tissues so that when he undergoes surgery, it will both be smooth, and the chances of it being effective will be higher. "I can't wait to see him fully healed," Mr. Meli, his guardian, told us.
Though in some discomfort, Kibet still has a smile on his face. When we saw him today, his dad told us, "You see? I told you; he will be brave throughout. Last night, he told me he would not cry through this whole process ... I have faith in CURE that you will be able to make him normal. Thank you!" Friends, please continue praying for Kibet's recovery.
