Oumarou has a hesitant happiness about him. After years of lagging behind the other boys his age, both metaphorically and literally, Oumarou has finally found the healing he needs! Oumarou was born with a knock knee, making walking a challenge as well as making him a topic of gossip in his tight knit neighborhood. For years he has struggled to make friends and wants nothing more than to run freely like the other children. Thankfully, one of Oumarou's uncles heard about us here at CURE Niger and, since we all live in the same city, decided to check us out on Oumarou's behalf. Gleefully, he shared the hope that we offer with Oumarou and within days, the family was here getting the pre-work done needed for Oumarou to have his surgery! We're so happy that we get to be a part of Oumarou's healing and we can wait to see the hesitance removed from his happiness!
Oumarou did indeed get discharged today. Evidently, he was so excited about it that he jetted out of here before we got a chance to say goodbye. We're glad everything has gone so well for this little man and can't wait to see him in a few weeks for his follow up appointment!
Oumarou's surgery went exactly as planned yesterday. Praise the Lord! The doctors took a triangular wedge out of his femur which allowed them to essentially break his leg straight. Once they had the correct angle, Oumarou had some hardware install to keep his leg straight and then had the whole leg casted up nicely! Our man is back in the ward now, sleeping off the anesthesia. Please be praying with us that he recovers well as the next few days will be rather hard for him!
Oumarou has been admitted to the ward and is just waiting for his surgery now. He's a little hesitant with his new surroundings, but his excitement about straightening his legs peaks through with a brilliant smile every now and again. We're so excited to have this guy with us!
