“Every time when I think about her, it makes me very sad. I had to carry her, to move her around and we both fell sometimes and it is very hard for me," says Zeritu, Medina’s mother and she continues, "I have been through a lot and I just want her to be healed.”
Medina is a sweet girl! She is a second child for her family and she has one older sister. Medina came to CURE with her mother Zeritu seeking help for her bone condition. This is not their first hospital experience, Zeritu told us that she took her to different clinics and hospitals but they couldn't find the help they needed. The last hospital they went to told them about CURE and they came to us. Medina used to walk and play with her friends but three years ago her leg problem got worse, and she could not walk or play with her friends anymore. While she was still in grade one, she was forced to quit her school because of it. Medina also told us, “I want to go back to school and be a teacher someday.” Join us welcoming Medina and Zeritu while they start their healing journey!
Medina is doing great! She told us she has been doing her walking practice at home and she is planning to start school this coming school year! She is showing a good progress and everything is healing as it should. She's still got a bunch of physical therapy practice ahead of her and we will she her again in three months for her next appointment!
Medina came back for her check-up today and she is doing wonderful! Dr. Mesfin told her to start walking weight bearing on her right leg. She will continue her practice from home and we will see her in three months for her next appointment!
Medina told us she had a restful weekend and she is doing well. Here are a couple of pictures from her last surgery. Dr. Mesfin did a wonderful job fixing her leg and we are so thankful for a safe procedure!
Medina told us that she had a restful weekend and she is doing very well! She is heading home today and will continue her recovery from there. Please continue to pray for her - we'll get to see her next in February!
Medina is feeling better today, she was out of bed in a wheelchair and getting herself around the hospital! She will continue her healing and stay the weekend with us at CURE Ethiopia! Thank you for your continued prayers for her!
Here are a couple of pictures from Medina's operation, Dr. Mesfin did a wonderful job straightening her femur! She is now resting and recovering well in the ward, please keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery!
Medina is doing a great job walking with her crutches! Her wound is healing well and her doctors says that everything looks perfect! She is done with her tibia treatment and she is moving on to the next step, which is another operation on her left femur. We will see her in mid December for her admission, please keep her in your prayers!
Medina was a good girl today! She gave all of her attention to the doctor's advice, they told her to continue practicing to walk. If she puts her full body weight on her leg while she walks, her bone will heal faster. We will see her progress in six weeks when she returns for her check-up!
Medina saw Dr. Mesfin today, she is doing great and the wound from her operation is healing well! She got a walking cast put on for the next month and she will try to walk with it until her next check-up. We will see her progress when she returns!
Take a peek into Medina's procedure, she did very well in her surgery and she is recovering well also! She now has a straight femur, and once this one heals she will have the same operation on her other femur. Please keep her in your prayers!
Meet Medina and her mother Zeritu! This is how Zeritu carries her around. We will see them again in mid June when they return for Medina's admission. Please keep her in your prayers for a safe return back to us!
