“When I was eight and a half months pregnant, I did an ultra sound scan and it showed that my baby has hydrocephalus," Salome shared with us. "Some people advised me to have an abortion, but my heart was not at peace with that idea, so I went to seek advice from my father who told me not to do it." Eventually, Salome's decision to keep her baby resulted in her husband leaving.
She gave birth to her baby through a c-section and was surprised and excited when she saw her baby, thus naming her Miracle. “She was very beautiful. She looked at me and my heart melted. She was alive and breathing well." When her husband left, Solome moved back home with her parents. She lived with them for a little while and then her mother decided to rent a single room for her where she currently lives with her two children: Miracle, and her older sister. Solome operates a small grocery store, selling a variety of vegetables. This helps her earn some money to take care of her kids. Miracle and Salome are now at CURE Uganda awaiting Miracle's surgery.
Baby Miracle was discharged and will be reviewed at a clinic near her home. Please be praying for her!
“Miracle is stable. She will be going to the ward today," Nurse Amelia said. Solome is doing well too and told us that Miracle is feeding well. She told us that she attended yesterday’s devotions and is looking forward to today’s too.
Baby Miracle had a successful ETV surgery today! She is currently in our post-anesthesia care unit recovering, and she's stable. She will be transferred to ICU where her and her mother Solome will spend the night. Please be praying for her!
Miracle’s cerebrospinal fluid was tapped yesterday, sent to the labs, and found to be clear. This means she doesn't have to take any antibiotics and is ready for surgery! She isn’t having her surgery today because of the amount of patients we currently have at the hospital, but she should be having surgery one day this week. Solome says she is doing well, and she talked to her family last night. Please keep them all in your prayers!
Upon their arrival yesterday, Miracle was taken for a brain CT scan which confirmed that she has hydrocephalus, and she was admitted. Our doctors are planning to tap her CSF this afternoon and send it to the lab for analysis, and other preparations will be made for her surgery as well. Solome has already made several friends in the ward and says she is comfortable and her and Miracle are being well-fed. Please keep both mom and baby in your prayers!
