“It was a such hard time for my family and me to see Blessings fighting the sickness for about a year. Most of the family members lost hope that Blessing would make it. The joy that filled our heart is that God healed him and we are so thankful to Him,” replied Modester, Blessings’ sister.
Blessings arrived here at CURE with her sister Modester and we had a very lovely chat with them. Modester told us that she really wanted to see her brother well and strong again. We encouraged Modester that our CURE doctors will do their best to get him better. “I thank God for my sister who has brought me to CURE hospital so that the doctors can help me. Since I got recovered from the illness I was suffering, my limbs (hand and leg) are not the same,” said Blessings and he continued, “I feel shy when I walk and I do not live a happy life as before. I would really want to have an operation so that my life is improved and that in future when I finish my education, I would do what God has for me.” Blessings is a student and he is in grade five.
Modester shared, “I have seen the favor of God since we came here at CURE. Unlike other hospitals, CURE has amazing hearts in welcoming and talking to patients and parents/guardians. I feel so much at home and I have seen how my brother Blessings is just so well accommodated. I believe my brother will definitely be well.”
There are three children in Blessings’ family and he is the last born child. Both Modester and Blessings’ parents are businesspeople to support the family. Please join us in praying for Blessings’ healing and thank you for your support of the ministry here at CURE Malawi!
Our friend Blessings was at the Lilongwe clinic on Monday! Funny asked him how he's doing and he says, "At first I was feeling pain, but now I am okay. I am even able to go to school without difficulties now!" We're so happy that his infection is clearing up, and the doctors are happy to let him go home for a year before the next checkup, so please be praying while he goes back to his studies!
Blessings surprised us today- he came in for physiotherapy! He is feeling well and is able to walk properly on his on own. There is a need, though, for the physiotherapist to advise on whether he still needs to use the crutch or not. We pray that Blessings gets the proper healing he deserves. Thank you for your prayers for him!
We brought Blessings get well messages today! Unfortunately he was in a bit of a bad mood after his operation yesterday, but he's going home tomorrow so we're sure that news will cheer him up! He was grateful to hear from all his supporters and his sister says to thank you all! Yesterday we spoke to Blessings before his operation about his time here at CURE and he says, "at home I go to Sunday school every Sunday. It's great that here at CURE hospital they organize Sunday school sessions for us. I am very happy that I'm not missing out on the word of God because of being hospitalized. May God bless this hospital." We think it's amazing that Blessings is so enthusiastic about learning more about Jesus! Please pray for continued spiritual growth and physical healing, and a safe journey home tomorrow!
Blessings is unexpectedly going in for surgery again today! When the doctors double checked his x-rays, they decided that the metal plates in his knee were a bit off, so they're readjusting them so that he doesn't develop another deformity. This is why we check those things! Please be praying for him as he has this surgery today!
Blessings looked better and more energetic today! He was in the physiotherapy room with our physio Patrick assisting him. Blessings is so strong even though he says feels a little bit of pain. He will be going home later this week, please keep on praying for him for a quick recovery!
Blessings' operation yesterday went well! Dr. Lubega used the X-ray machine to locate the growth plates in his knee and then put a couple of little metal plates in his knee to stop them from growing. This will help his right leg catch up since it's shorter because of the bone infection in his leg. Please be praying for him while he recovers!
Blessings is having his second operation today. He's having the growth in his left leg temporarily stopped with a bit of metal so that the other leg can catch up - and we're less busy today so we promise we won't miss getting a photo of his operation for you all! Please be praying for him as he has surgery!
Our friend Blessings is doing well today! His arm looks almost good enough to send him home, but next week he'll be having another operation to stop the growth in his left leg so that his shorter right leg can catch up. Please be praying for him!
"Today is my third day at CURE and I love the place! Even though I have been in pain, I am doing great," said Blessings. Blessings had his operation yesterday and he is already recovering quickly! We thank you all for your prayers and support!
Oops! We were so busy running around yesterday with four operations and other tasks, we missed Blessing's operation to have the infected bone removed from his arm! We came in at the tail end when he was being brought out of anesthesia, so we took our mistake as an opportunity to spotlight our amazing anesthesia team. This is Emmanuel, who works at the nearby Queens hospital and it's his first day on the job working part-time here at CURE! Please be praying for him as he joins our staff, and be praying for Blessings as he recovers from surgery!
Blessings is waiting to have his surgery today. Please continue praying for him as our doctors will be removing an infected bone in his left arm. Please be also praying for his sister Modester as she is caring for him and will be here to support him in his recovery.
Meet Blessings! Blessings is a young boy with a serious case of osteomyelitis, infection of the bone. For his surgery tomorrow, he'll have a piece of the dead bone removed from his left arm, but he also has it in his legs and it has destroyed one of his hips. Please pray for him as he has his operation tomorrow, and possibly many more in the future!
