Angeline's Procedure on

“I have ten kids and Angeline is number eight and she’s been a huge help for me as she washes dishes and her clothes. It lifts some of the load off of me. I am thankful that despite of her leg deformity, she’s still able to do everything! Although she feels pain after a long period of time, Angeline is able to walk and run!” shares Angeline’s mom Teresita.
Born with Blount’s disease, Angeline often trips due to her lower legs’ inward angle. But she continues to push through and still gets to enjoy her childhood with a lot of friends! Angeline only says a few words, but you can tell that she’s sweet and “a very obedient child,” confirms Teresita.
“I’m in first grade and I have a lot of friends in school,” says Angeline. Teresita hopes that “Angeline will be able to finish school and graduate college someday.” So as we pray for Angeline’s healing, we also pray that God will continue to unveil His plans for Angeline as she takes on this healing journey!
Today is the day! Angeline danced her joy out when she heard the news that her casts are coming off! X-ray even confirmed it and she's ready to move on to physical therapy. Her exercises are crucial to get back on track. Angeline will be speed walking and running in no time! Thank you for praying!
Angeline rolled in the wheelchair with a group from her hometown today. We found out that she's not quite ready to completely get off the cast just yet! So we toned down her long-leg cast to a short-leg cast and sent her back home again. We continue to pray for progress as she continues to heal at home!
The swelling on Angeline's eyes subsided a little and enough to catch up on Get Well messages this morning. Still quiet, she gave us a sweet smile to confirm that she appreciated the encouragement. Angeline's getting discharged today and we expect to see her again next month!
Teresita says, "Angeline's eyes are swollen." Not because she has some allergic reaction, but because she's been crying all night in pain. Thankfully, she slept in this morning and didn't feel any of it. When she woke up, she gave us a smile and we're glad to be able to pray with her and divert thoughts about pain to playing with the gadget.
We got to chat with Angeline while waiting for her turn in the OR, and by chat, we mean Angeline nodding and smiling since she's still too shy to talk. She's made a new friend- CUREkid Avril, who was also in surgery while Angeline was waiting. It didn't take too long until it was Angeline's turn and Dr. Jun got right into putting rods in both her legs so they can heal and grow straight!
Angeline does not say much, but we think it’s safe to say that she likes being at the hospital just by looking at her sweet smile while coloring. Local missionaries helped Angeline and Teresita find their way here, which have been a huge help for all of us. You, too, can help by praying for Angeline’s healing!
