“She was okay,” Solomon, Daisy’s dad, told us of when Daisy was born. For the first years of Daisy’s life, she lived like usual, playing and going to school. But then things changed: “Three years ago, it started to curve in.” Daisy’s foot started misbehaving, becoming clubfoot. The doctors have a bit of a different version of the story that involves Daisy being younger when this all started. But regardless of when it started, sweet Daisy’s life has become more complicated, and all probably due to an injection given in an area that damaged one of her nerves, an unfortunately common story in Kenya.
Right now, Solomon and Daisy’s mom take turns carrying her to school and back because walking isn’t easy for Daisy. Thankfully, a CURE Kenya mobile clinic came to their town. Solomon saw it on the news and came and he was scheduled for surgery. Solomon and Daisy are now here for Daisy’s surgery! Please pray for Daisy’s healing so she can once again play and go to school with ease!
Daisy and her father came to CURE Kenya today, and Daisy got herself another new cast! Along with this, she was measured for her shoe brace. This means that right after the new year, she’ll be coming back to CURE Kenya to pick it up. What a great way to start in 2020! We’ll see her then!
Daisy and her new cast from yesterday were chilling in bed this morning. Already Daisy’s wait is coming closer to the end! Her cast has already been changed, she seems to be feeling pretty good, and if all goes well, she’ll be going home over the weekend!
Daisy was cozy in her bed on this overcast Thursday morning, waiting. Waiting to go to the OR for a cast change, waiting to feel better, waiting for word that it’s time to go home. We’re thankful she won’t have to wait too much longer for any of those if all goes well! Pray for our sweet little friend’s wait to be over soon.
During Daisy’s surgery, the doctors worked to make it so she can step down easier and worked to help correct the curve in her foot. She’ll spend the next few days at CURE Kenya resting and eating and enjoying the happenings in the ward. After that, she’ll be free to go home and continue healing from there! Pray for smooth sailing in all this healing!
It’s easy to take advantage of the fact that every day, you put on your shoes with ease and you walk to your car, your job, even just to your kitchen. For Daisy, that ease is a luxury. Because Daisy has a foot that is curved, it takes a bit more work to put on her shoes. Thankfully, Solomon was there to help Daisy put on her shoes. Pray that after her surgery, Daisy will find it easier to put on her shoes!
