“A few of my friends said my son Precious inherited this deformity from his grandfather and that condition cannot be medically healed. I never had peace when I heard that, but I started believing it and I was angry at myself,” said Precious' mother Rose.
Precious comes to CURE Malawi with a condition where both his hands have fingers which are fused together. Rose says that Precious’ grandfather had a similar condition. It has been really hard for Rose as she was encouraged not to seek medical help. “Just because his grandfather was not helped, does it mean my son will not be helped as well?”
Precious does not associate with the other children in his village because he is always made fun of due to his condition.
With little hope, Rose took Precious to a local community clinic where they were told to go to a hospital. Precious was examined and was encouraged to wait for CURE Malawi doctors who will visit the hospital on the mobile clinic in a few months. Precious was then seen by the CURE doctors and was booked to come to CURE Malawi for an operation to separate his fingers!
Rose shared with us how she felt the day she arrived at CURE, ”I just had this hope that overtook my joy and I am so excited to see my son Precious have his freedom!”
Please help us in prayers and support for Precious and his mother Rose who are here at CURE Malawi!
We were able to check in on Precious by calling his parents. His wounds are healing up so well! Precious will be seen by our CURE Malawi doctors again in September. Before they got discharged, our CURE nurses gave Rose, Precious' mother, bandage packs and some painkillers for Precious. Please keep praying for our little boy Precious for complete healing!
"Even though my son only has one free hand, he still finds ways to peel his orange!" Rose bragged. Precious and his mother are inseparable. Wherever his mother goes, we find Precious too! Such a loving little boy. We asked him why he follows his mother everywhere, and Precious told us that he is looking after her!
Precious is having a great day playing in the ward and finding ways to get into some trouble! His whole job between now and his wound check next week is just to work on healing up. Thankfully he can still do that while playing. Thank you for your prayers and please continue to send him to get well wishes and prayers!
Precious had his next operation successfully done! It was a quick revision surgery and he was in and out in no time. Now he just has to stick around until next week when the doctors will check in on his surgical wound. Please keep him in your prayers!
It's official, Precious is going to have his operation next week! Our CURE Malawi doctors will be revising one of his fingers which is starting to stick together. Please pray for Precious as he gets ready for another round!
Eight weeks have already gone by and Precious has come to see our CURE Malawi doctors. Since he's come such a long way, Precious is hanging out in our ward as he waits for his appointment. We'll be sure to fill you in what happens!
Precious is going home tomorrow! His doctor saw his fingers this morning and while they still have some healing to do, they're rounding the corner into the home stretch! Our nurses but new bandages on Precious after this photo was taken and are supplying him with extra bandages and meds for his time at home. Please keep praying for Precious as he leaves us and we'll check in with him when he comes back in a month for his final operation!
Precious is going to have a more in depth wound check tomorrow. Based on these results, the doctors will make the call when Precious might be able to go home! Even though this unstoppable boy has bandages on his both hands, he somehow finds a way how to use his hands without hurting himself! This morning he was trying to open the wardrobe using just his thumbs!
As promised, Precious had his wound checked his morning and doctors were super pleased how everything is coming along. Precious is still in the ward for now, but we wouldn't be surprised if he got discharged soon!
Precious' operation went super well! Our CURE Malawi doctors release one more finger on each of Precious' hands. As he got back to the ward, he wasn't too happy that both his hands were wrapped in bandages. He asked his mother: "Mom, how will I eat if my both hands are covered with these white cloths?" His mom assured him that she'll help feed him. Please be praying for this little guy!
A few updates all in one for Precious. Sorry about this. But last week, Precious had another surgery! The doctors successfully released another one of his fingers on his left hand. He was then discharged over the weekend and will be back in May, hopefully ready for yet another operation! Unfortunately, the doctors have to go finger by finger in order to allow Previous to achieve the best healing. This means a lot of visits to CURE Malawi, but we love having Precious around so we're ok with this!
Precious is back! Our doctors are examining him to do another operation on his hand. While waiting, Precious has been so chilled and funny! We snuck up to his bed, but we were caught right before we took an unnoticed photo! Continue to pray for Precious as he will hopefully be having his operation soon!
It's a happy Monday with little Precious at CURE Malawi. He had his wound inspection early and has been discharged to go home. Precious will be seen again at his local clinic in the first week of December, where the CURE doctors will schedule him for the next operation on his left hand. We look forward to the day this sweet smile returns to our hospital. Please keep Precious in your prayers while he journeys home safely.
Precious is hanging out with his hospital friends today waving at cars that pass by, eating kamba (the orange cheeto-like snack in his hand), racing wheelchairs, and taking lots of photos in the kid's ward. The doctors told Precious he'll be having a wound inspection next week on Tuesday. Until then, he'll continue playing with his friends and loving life at the hospital. Please pray for the healing of his hand and that his wound inspection will go well next week!
Precious is reading his Children's Action Bible in the playroom today with his mom. He's back to smiles and fun while waiting for his hand to heal. Precious is so sweet, and we love having him here with us at the hospital. He loves giving high-fives, napping, and hanging out with his mom! Please continue to keep Precious in your prayers while his hand heals!
Precious is in the operating room having his first surgery on his right hand. Dr. Maina and his assistant will be releasing Precious's middle and pinky fingers today. They plan to do the same on the other hand once this hand heals properly. Please keep Precious in your prayers while he's in surgery and his mom as she anxiously waits for her son to come out of the operating room!
Precious is still finishing up his medicine this week to get rid of his malaria. He'll most likely be having his first operation Monday. Until then, he's enjoying the rest of his week hanging out in the playroom with his mom and stylish new glasses. Please continue to keep Precious in your prayers as he prepares for his upcoming procedure.
Welcome to CURE Malawi Precious! This little guy came to our hospital this week with three of his fingers fused together on both hands. Precious is super sweet and loves saying, "Boh!" meaning "Hi!" to everyone who passes him in the kid's ward. We are excited for Precious' upcoming operation and look forward to seeing him use his future healing hands!
