Cyprian is five days old and he was born with unilateral clubfoot. Julia, his mum, was so shocked because she had never seen such a thing in her life. This being her second born and her first baby being born with clubfoot, she was worried that maybe she had done something wrong and was being punished for it. She was told by the nurse that this was not a big problem and that it could be corrected.
Julia felt so much relief, and she relaxed. She was told about CURE and so she brought her son to start the clubfoot correction process. She is hopeful that her son will be able to walk when the time comes and that he will be like his older sibling. Please pray for Cyprian as he begins his clubfoot correction journey.
Cyprian is doing well. He was asleep before his cast was taken off so he was shocked when he first heard the sound of the cast cutter. His mum held his hand all throughout the process though! She also covered his face so that the dust from the cast wouldn’t bother him. Cyprian will continue with casting and we’ll see him again next Monday when he comes back for clinic. Thank you so much for your continued support in prayer and in kind!
Cyprian’s mum was very fast to note that there has been an improvement since they started correction by casting. Cyprian is doing well and is really growing fast. He didn’t like the sound of the cast cutter at all. He screamed at the top of his lungs but his mum held his hand and calmed him down. Please continue praying that the correction process is successful.
“He’s improving,” Mama Cyprian told us today. We weren’t sure if she was seeing the progress, if the physios were seeing the progress, or if she was asking if we were seeing the progress! She had a bit of a scare today though because Cyprian still had a bit of swelling in his leg even after a week of resting and the physios wanted a doctor to check it out. Mama Cyprian was so relieved because the doctor thought things were okay for the physios to go ahead and recast. Please do pray with us that the swelling isn’t an indication of something more complex, and please pray that Cyprian will just continue to improve like his mom says he is! We’ll catch him again next Monday.
He opened his eyes. Yay! Look at how much he has grown since he came here first. Cyprian was a bit freaked out by the cast cutter machine that was much too loud for him. He cried a lot but his mum was there with him and for him the whole time. “I have already started seeing a huge difference in my son’s leg, and I am hopeful that in the end he’ll be alright,” Cyprian’s mum told us. Cyprian is experiencing a bit of swelling in his leg, so after about a week's rest from casting, hopefully he'll get another cast put on and continue with his treatment. We know his healing is in God's hands and in His time!
Cyprian doesn’t like the light, that’s why he would really cry if we tried to wake him to take a photo with his eyes open. But he’s only five days old so he’ll get used to the light as days go by. Please pray for him and for the correction process!
