Today, the operating room was fully occupied, and the last patient on the list was Ann Marielle! The medical team conducted a surgical procedure where they removed a wedge-shaped piece of bone from one of the bones between her knee and ankle. This allowed the to straighten her leg. They then secured the bone with a metal plate. The other bone between her knee and ankle was also cut to aid in the correction of the first bone. Good news, Ann Marielle's surgery was successful! We went to see her during her recovery, and her mother informed us that she was experiencing pain and having trouble sleeping because of her operated leg. Let us all keep Ann Marielle in our thoughts and prayers, hoping that she can overcome the pain and have a speedy recovery. Thank you!
When we visited Rhianne Mae in the ward today, her mother informed us that she was not in a good mood as she had a sleepless night and wants to go home. Thankfully, Doctor Shera delivered some good news that Rhianne Mae is cleared for discharge today, which made them happy. The medical team provided some instructions for Mommy Felma on how to take care of Rhianne Mae during her home recovery. Rhianne Mae was given medication, and they were sent home. Help us pray for Rhianne’s fast recovery! Thank you!
Let's warmly welcome our lovely new friend, Ann Marielle, who made a twelve-hour journey to get treatment at Tebow CURE! Ann Marielle is a fourteen-year-old girl with dreams of becoming a teacher. She is the only one in her family with a bowed legs condition. This causes her legs to bend outward at the knees, creating a gap between her lower legs and knees when standing with her ankles together. We are thrilled to learn Ann Marielle has received clearance from the pediatrician and will undergo surgery at Tebow CURE this week! Let's keep her and her mother, Maricel, in our prayers as they stay with us, hoping they will experience God's goodness!
Today is Rhianne's first surgery! The medical team prepared her before being taken to the operating room. Tebow CURE Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shera then performed the surgery to repair Rhianne's cleft lip and correct her nasal deformity. The procedure was successful, and Rhianne is now recovering in the children's ward! Let's keep her in our thoughts and hope for a quick recovery!
Let us introduce you to Rhianne Mae, our new friend! She is a delightful two-year-old girl who loves cuddling with her mother, Felma. As the youngest in her family, Rhianne is adored by everyone, including her neighbors. She also enjoys playing outdoors with other children. Felma believes that Rhianne is a precious gift from God, even though she finds it challenging to communicate verbally with her cleft lip. Fortunately, Felma can understand Rhianne's gestures and expressions, allowing them to communicate. We are overjoyed to learn that Felma's prayers have been answered, and Rhianne is preparing for her first surgery. Please remember Rhianne in your prayers!
