Martha was discharged today! She had little pain and was drinking tea when our storyteller came to see her this morning. Although her surgical wounds are a little sore, she is doing really well. We apologize for not getting a decent photo of her for her update. We will have a photo ready for you when she comes for her follow-up appointment at the end of the month. Please continue to pray for her wounds to heal completely.

Acadius, a content creator at CURE, helped Rosaline learn how to floss her teeth using dental floss. Rosaline was really amused that what she thought were toys in the care package she received from our Spiritual team were actually things she could use to clean her teeth! Now, Rosaline can keep her teeth clean by flossing, and she can teach her friends how to do it.

Big boy Fraol came with his uncle for his follow-up this week. He was a little nervous when Dr. Tesfaye took his hand to check on his progress. Dr. Tesfaye then started talking to him so that he would feel at ease. Fraol has been healing well. His wound was cleaned, and Dr. Tesfaye showed him some exercises he can do at home to maintain the flexibility of his fingers. He will come back for another follow-up in one month. Please join us in praying for Fraol's continued healing.

What a joy to see Ibrahim! "I missed this place and the people from here!" he said smiling. He brought us peanuts from his village as a sign of appreciation. What a lovely surprise! He kept himself busy, while at home. He studied more of the Romanian language, read business books, and helped with household chores. Today, he consulted with our doctors, and voilà -- no more cast needed! He will return home for six weeks, and if everything goes well, another surgery is on the way. So glad to see him flourishing! Please pray for Ibrahim to have a safe trip home!

Today, Solomon was relaxing on his bed when we met him in the morning. His dad says he was able to eat yesterday in the evening, and his appetite seems to be okay now. His pain is gone, and we are happy that he is feeling better!
