“She was just one when she burned her hand and legs, all of her leg burns are healed now but I could not afford to follow up with her treatment to heal her hand,” explains Rahmet, Firdos’s mother and she continued, “I’m just so happy I have found a place that would help me heal my daughter.”
Firdos is a sweet eight year old girl who loves running around and playing. When she was just a year old both of her legs and left hand caught on fire in an accident. She did not get treatment right away and her left hand still needs a contracture release. It took Firdos and her mother Rahmet a full day to get to the CURE Ethiopia hospital and we are happy they are now here! They heard about CURE Ethiopia from a previous patient of ours and came straight here. She has not started school yet but she is looking forward to starting as soon as she finishes her treatment. She has three brothers and one sister, her mother stays at home with the children and her father is a daily laborer. Join us in welcoming Firdos as she starts her healing journey!
Firdos was showing us her healing arm and smiling because it is healing well and showing progress! Today our physiotherapist showed her different exercises to do at home and we will see how well she doing next week at her check-up!
Firdos came back for a dressing change today. Her arm needed to be repositioned a little which would've really hurt so she went back for a quick visit to the OR where they put her to sleep and reposition everything to where it needed to be. She is doing wonderful and her arm is healing fantastically! We will see her again next week for another check-up!
Dr. Tesfaye was assuring Firdos that her hand is healing beautiful and she only has to wear a splint for a week! After that, she can start different exercises to develop motion in her fingers and hand. We will see her again next week for a splint removal and will start her exercises too!
Dr. Tesfaye was comforting Firdos while cleaning and changing her dressing today! Her hand is healing well and showing good progress! She will stay in her new splint for the coming week and we will check on her progress during her next follow up appointment!
Firdos went home over the weekend and will continue her recovery from there! We will see her progress in a couple of days when she returns for a dressing change. Please keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery and a safe return back to the hospital!
Firdos keeps on making new friends! Earlier this morning we found her playing with her new friend Birhane! They both posed and giggled for the camera and after seeing their photo, they went back to their game! Her wound from the operation is healing beautifully, thank you for your prayers for her!
We found Firdos next to her bed resting after having a walk around the ward, she is having a dressing change every other day and the wound from her operation is healing and showing great progress! Thank you for your faithful prayers for her!
Firdos is doing well! We found her outside taking a walk and enjoying her day. She had a dressing change yesterday and her wound from the operation is healing! Keep this sweet one in your prayers for a speedy recovery!
