Two weeks after having limb lengthening surgery at CURE Kenya, Jayden was discharged to go home. At the onset of the intervention, the anticipation was that each adjustment would bring him closer to the desired outcome — a well-aligned, functional left foot that allows him to navigate the world with comfort and confidence. "So far, so good!" his mom, Jackline, exclaimed as she looked at Jayden, who was holding a crane paper origami in the air. Mr. Acay, CURE Kenya's CUREKids coordinator, made it for Jayden, who had asked for a goodbye gift! "Can't it fly?" Jayden asked as he tried to lift it up and let it drop down like a plane. Please pray for traveling mercies and a wonderful festive season as they go home. Jayden will return in the new year for a follow-up appointment. Thank you for your support!
Blessing was discharged to go home over the weekend after her burn contracture release surgery at CURE Kenya! Her wound was given the green light for its cleanness, having healed well after the final bandage change. After surgery, Blessing entered a phase of recovery and rehabilitation. Physical therapy, wound care, and supportive interventions played a crucial role in optimizing the surgery outcomes. This phase demanded physical and emotional strength, and Blessing was amazing through it all! Her transformation journey will continue at home under the close eye of her mother, Janet, and her father, Benson. "We have been advised to monitor her progress and observe for any different smell as well as making the surgery site stays as dry as possible," Janet commented as they packed their bags to travel overnight and arrive a day later. Please pray for Blessing's quick recovery and a safe journey for her family!

Blessings was discharged to go home during the weekend after her long stay in the hospital following corrective surgery for her bowed legs at CURE Kenya. "I have missed my friends at home and my favorite rice dish, commonly known as pilau (fried spicy rice)," Blessings shared as her mind drifted away while she reminisced. As Blessings embarks on this journey to recovery, the collective hope is for her to regain physical healing and the ability to run, play, and explore the world without the hindrance of bowed legs. Blessings will return in eight weeks for the next TSF adjustment program. Friends, when she is healed, her story will be an unforgettable story of resilience free from the limitations of bowed legs!
