“This sickness will be healed, I know because I believe that God heals. Rosemary’s siblings were worried about her condition but I encouraged them too that she will be fine,” said Betty. For the last seven months Rosemary has been afflicted by hydrocephalus. Her parents tried most hospitals around their village but they failed to treat her condition, she was also taken to church and was prayed for. A missionary doctor who lives and works in their village identified Rosemary and brought her to CURE Hospital. Out of the four children that Betty has given birth to, only three are alive, her second born died of an illness. Now that Betty and Rosemary are at CURE, Betty’s husband is caring for the other two kids back at home where he is also being helped by Betty’s mother. Both Betty and her husband are peasant farmers, they live 400 miles from CURE Hospital. Betty has been impressed by the way we work at CURE and she says that it has increased her confidence that God will heal Rosemary.
On Friday, Rosemary got to go home and Betty was given the news during the morning ward rounds. Betty spent the morning playing with Rosemary, washing clothes and saying goodbye to her friends. Prior to them leaving, they received several get well messages, which brought a big smile to Betty's face. We will see them again in about a month at CURE. Please continue to pray for Rosemary to improve.
“Feeling good, waiting and hoping the baby will be fine,” said Betty as she fed Rosemary in the ICU. This morning, Rosemary will be moved to the ward, there are no major concerns and she has no fevers and is feeding well. Her doctors will keep her on a salt solution a little longer to ensure her electrolytes stay at a normal range. Please keep Rosemary in your prayers that her recovery will continue to go well.
After waiting for more than a week to get her sodium to an acceptable level, Rosemary has gone in for surgery. They performed and ETV/CPC and she has been moved to the ICU where she was reunited with her mother. They will spend the night there, please be praying for Rosemary to recover well.
“The doctors told me that Rosemary's sodium levels are still low so they cannot operate on her yet. However, other than that, she is feeding well, has no fevers and she isn’t convulsing so we are OK. I called my family and updated them about the situation here at CURE Hospital and they told me that they are praying for Rosemary and that my other children back at home are fine, ” said Betty, Rosemary’s mother.
“Praying that God may heal my baby," said Betty. Betty says they are both doing well and that they had a good weekend. Yesterday they went to church and prayed for Rosemary’s upcoming operation, her doctors are still deciding when she will go into surgery. Please be praying that her upcoming operation goes well.
Rosemary and Betty are both happy and Rosemary has been very playful! She currently has a cough and low sodium so her doctors are working on getting her sodium levels higher and are thinking that she will have surgery next week. Please continue to pray for Rosemary, that her upcoming operation will go well, and for strength for Betty.
Today, Rosemary’s Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) will be tapped and sent to the labs for analysis as the doctors prepare to operate on her. Betty told us that she is still settling in the ward, she spent her morning doing some laundry and mostly nursing and holding Rosemary. Rosemary had a calm night and a calm morning, please keep her in your prayers as the doctors prepare her for her life changing surgery.
