Beverlyne is a cute little 8-month-old girl who was born with a cleft lip. We asked her mom if she had ever seen any other children who had cleft lip before, and she said that she had. “There are so many of them back home. Where we go to church, there are like six other children with a cleft lip,” Obote, Beverlyne's mother, said.
Obote heard about a CURE Kenya mobile clinic very close to her home and brought Beverlyne there. Beverlyne was evaluated and given a date to come to CURE Kenya for surgery. Obote is positive that her daughter will be healed and her smile transformed. “My desire is that when we get home, all the other moms with children who have cleft lip will be encouraged, and they will take their children for treatment,” Obote told us.
Please join us in welcoming Obote and Beverlyne to CURE Kenya!
This morning, we found two bags on Beverlyne’s bed - a sign that they were getting ready to go home. We are so happy that Beverlyne is stable, off oxygen, and can go home today. Please thank God for all the good things that have happened to Beverlyne and her family this week.
Beverlyne developed some breathing problems when she came out of the operating room that required her to be taken to the Intensive Care Unit. She was stabilized with help from our skilled nurses. She is breathing with a bit of difficulty but is much better than yesterday. Please pray for Beverlyne's breathing to continue to improve.
Beverlyne didn’t have to wait too long today before she could have her surgery. Her mom was very excited this morning when she was told that today was the day her daughter would have her operation. The picture shows the small swab with ink is used by the surgeon to mark exactly where he’ll do the incision when he begins operating. Beverlyne’s operation was a success, and we are absolutely grateful to God for that. Please pray for her smooth recovery.
Here is a peaceful Beverlyne enjoying her midday nap. She is waiting her turn to go to the operating room to get her surgery. There is a bit of hold up because only one doctor can do her cleft lip repair, and he is occupied with some other major and more pressing operations. Please pray for Beverlyne and her mom as they wait.
According to her mom and what we observed when we first met Beverlyne, she really loves digital gadgets, like phones. She is definitely going to be tech-savvy when she grows up. Please pray for her upcoming operation that will take place this week.
