There are many perks to being admitted to the long-term ward - less monitoring by doctors, a spacious play area, and also group physiotherapy sessions! Selamu had his game face on during today's group physiotherapy. He tried his best to do all the exercises correctly. He is still on the weekly casting schedule, so we pray that these casts mean better results and minimally invasive surgery in the future!

After staying at home for six months, Shasho came to CURE Ethiopia yesterday for a review. We are pleased to say she is healing incredibly well! Six months ago, the metal frame on her right arm was replaced by a cast. Now, that cast is also gone. Praise God! Dr. Tim had Shasho take an x-ray for a better assessment of her progress. It looks like the only thing she needs now is a night-time splint to help with the alignment. Thank you for all the contributions you make. Your support and contributions enable us to provide modern surgical care to the patients we serve. God bless you!

Dr. Tim gave us the "everything looks good" thumbs-up after examining Abduro yesterday! Abduro is doing better and better by the day. In our last update, Abduro had just started walking with his casts on. This time, he can use the walker with ease (he is only in a wheelchair in this photo until his new casts are dry). Praise God for his progress! We hope to see more healing and improvement when he comes back for a check-up next month. Please be praying for him until then.

It's a good thing Dr Yodit had Emran checked. His abdomen ultrasound yesterday revealed a few small issues which would indeed make it unsafe to go for surgery at this point. Emran has been given some vitamins. Those, paired with time, should sort him out. Emran was putting on his tough face in this photo, but contrary to what this photo shows, both Emran and his brother seem to be ok with the call. It's definitely a bummer. We all want to get Emran's legs straightened out, but all of us have Emran's safety as our first priority! Please be praying that when Emran returns in six months, he will be healthy enough for surgery!
