Evance comes to CURE from Chigumula, about an hour ride from the hospital. He comes with his father and was admitted on January 7 after being seen during the general clinic. The doctors decided he needed to be admitted asap so the infection could be treated without affecting any more of his left femur. Evance has been dealing with the bone infection known as chronic osteomyelitis for over 3 years, so we're praising God that he'll finally receive the treatment he needs this week.
Feeling much better, Evance was kicking a ball around the ward with another patient this afternoon. When asked about their financial situation, his father told us that he is a cook in one of the houses in the community and supports the entire family.
Evance is feeling much better. He is using a wheelchair to get around the ward. We love to see some of his shyness wear off and a silly, happy boy emerge. The doctors aren't talking about discharge yet so he still has some time here at CURE.
Evance's pain level dropped over the weekend but he is still having trouble getting in and out of bed. The wound is cleaned daily and his father is very happy for his care since he arrived at CURE.
Evance had a good day, recovering and sleeping. His wound is being kept open in order to clean and monitor any return of infection. Pray for this boy, cleaning the wound daily is a painful procedure.
Evance Antonio is in surgery at CURE Malawi. Please pray for him. We hope he wakes up and returns to his old self quickly. He's a ball of laughter and a bit shy.
