“I used to see this sickness on TV. I never imagined that one of my own would get it too. When I noticed that she had developed the disease, I thought of going to hospital, but my husband said that she was just growing however, when I told my mother about the condition of the child, she told me not to waste any more time and come straight to hospital. I was very worried about moving with a sick child to a district that I have never been too but when I got here the guards at the gate welcomed me so warmly, they carried my bags to OPD, then a gentleman escorted me to the ward and I immediately felt a change. That very afternoon we had devotions in the ward and I felt revived. I want all my children to be doctors and I have hope that my girl will be fine,” says Topista, Elizabeth’s mom. Topista and her husband Christopher are peasant farmers but since Elizabeth developed hydrocephalus, they haven’t been to their farm, all their attention has been on Elizabeth’s health. Topista’s mother is now taking care of her two other children back at home. Join us in praying for Elizabeth's healing and we invite you to encourage them by sending them a get well message! We are so thankful for your support in the work being done at CURE Uganda.
“I have seen a difference - you see here (pointing to Elizabeth’s forehead) it was big but now it’s small,” said Topista. This morning Topista was told they could go home which has made her very happy! As the doctors approached her bed, she was hoping they would tell her that they were being discharged. Now that Elizabeth is going home, Topista is looking toward the future, her hope for Elizabeth is, “To work well at school and become a doctor because doctors know everything,” said Topista. Please keep Elizabeth in your prayers that her recovery will continue to go well!
“She is doing well, everything is well! I’m fine, now I am okay,” said Topista with a big smile and two thumbs up. Elizabeth spent the night in the ICU and has been recovering well, she will be transferred to the ward this morning. Elizabeth has been playing with an inflated glove which seems to be keeping her entertained. Topista is very happy, she has called home to let her family know that Elizabeth’s operation is completed. All morning as Topista has done normal hospital tasks like washing her laundry or getting flasks of tea or milk from the kitchen, her face has been glowing from her large smile and cheerful demeanor! Please keep praying for Elizabeth that her recovery will continue to go well!
"I am a very happy woman. My baby is now doing well because of you people and your supporters," Topista said. She added that Elizabeth's head has already reduced in size and she is lighter to carry. Dr. Peter performed an ETV/CPC as he explained to medical students the anatomy of the brain and what he was doing. Topista and her family are grateful for the support and care that Elizabeth has received. Please keep your prayers for healing coming!
“There was a short woman (Immaculate) who came here and I got saved. They preached and taught me, showed me examples so I decided it is better to come back to God,” said Topista. Today, Topista and Elizabeth are both doing well, they have been playing and Topista has been helping Elizabeth to sit. During the morning ward rounds Topista was told they will probably operate on Elizabeth on Monday and she feels good about the news. Please keep Topista and Elizabeth in your prayers for continued strength and courage for Topista, and a successful operation for Elizabeth!
“I was in many hospitals but the care that I have received here surpasses all others. The doctors here give us hope,” Topista says. She is encouraged by the stories she hears from the mothers that she's met here at CURE Uganda. “Brandon’s mom told me that she has been here for more than three months and is trusting God to heal him,” she said. Topista and Immaculate from our Spiritual Center had a time of prayer this morning. Please join them in praying for Elizabeth and pray for Topista too!
