Little Sarah is the youngest of two daughters. She is a lively and spunky little girl! About a month after she was born, her mom, Josephine, noticed a small bump growing on the top of her head. This is called a dermoid cyst, and it's something that some babies are born with, and then it begins to grow slowly. One of the doctors that Josephine took Sarah to see knew about CURE Uganda and referred her here to us.
While this type of cyst is not dangerous to the child, it does have to be removed carefully by a skilled surgeon. Thankfully, we have incredible surgeons here at CURE Uganda and they're experienced in dealing with this condition. Once Sarah has her surgery, her hair should cover the scar, and she won't even remember ever having had this little bump.
We're really happy that Sarah can have surgery here at CURE Uganda and happy that God has provided the answer she and her family need - skilled surgeons, an amazing medical team, and a family who cares about her!
Sarah and Josephine have headed home! The CURE Uganda nurses trained Josephine in how to take care of Sarah's incision as it continues to heal, and we'll see them again in just a few weeks for her next checkup. Thank you for praying for this sweet and spunky little one as she keeps on healing!
Baby Sarah had us laughing this morning! She's definitely decided she likes having her photo taken and was eager to grab the camera and to look at her picture! Josephine is still feeling a little sore, but Sarah is getting spunkier each day. The doctors are keeping a close eye on Sarah's surgical incision as it continues to heal up, and are making sure she gets the antibiotics she needs. Thank you for praying for this dynamic duo!
Sarah is feeling better day by day! This morning she was having fun playing with a balloon in the patient hostel where she and Josephine are staying. She'll receive her IV antibiotics a bit longer just to be sure all the infection is tackled, but she seems back to her smiley self! Josephine is still feeling a bit sore so the nurses are going to talk with her today and try to help figure out what's going on. Thank you for praying for both Sarah and Josephine today!
Baby Sarah is back at CURE Uganda for a couple days! Her surgical site got a bit infected, so the medical team set her up with some IV antibiotics and she should be just fine. She's already feeling better, as you can tell! Josephine has been feeling pretty sore and achy herself the past couple days, so our lab team gave her some tests and should have the results for her soon. We're thankful that our amazing doctors, nurses, and lab scientists don't just care for babies, but for their mamas, too!
Look at those smiles! Sarah had her surgery and is doing great! Everything went very well and she and Josephine are heading home today. Thank you for praying for her and her family. We're so glad she was able to get the surgery she needs, and had such a speedy and smooth time at CURE Uganda!
Baby Sarah is all smiles! She was hanging out in her Pooh Bear jammies while we visited this morning. Originally she was on the surgery schedule for today, but due to some scheduling changes, she's been switched to tomorrow. She doesn't seem too upset about the change! She and Josephine are doing well - Sarah had a small fever last night but the nurses gave her some medication and she's feeling fine now, as you can see!
Sarah had a happy morning today! She and Josephine spent some time in the playroom with a few of the other moms and babies as Pastor Winnie encouraged them. Sarah was pretty content in her colorful swing while Josephine colored a bible verse. The playroom is a beautiful space for moms and babies to rest and enjoy some special time together, having fun and learning about God's love for them.
Sarah and Josephine arrived at CURE Uganda today and are getting settled into the ward. Sarah was definitely in a happy mood this afternoon! They will attend worship along with the other moms and babies in the ward and then have dinner together before settling in for the night. Hopefully Sarah will be able to have her surgery this week!
