"I was so excited when I got to know that I was expecting twins," Agnes spoke with such pride. She successfully gave birth to a boy and a girl. "I was not happy to hear that my little girl had a problem though. I told the doctors to do whatever they can to save her." Little Bertha was found to have spina bifida, a condition in which the spine fails to develop properly forming a sacklike tissue on the back. If untreated it can lead to serious complications even possibly leading to death. Thankfully, the doctors immediately referred Agnes and Bertha here to CURE Uganda. "I have always heard of CURE and had never thought I would ever visit, but here I am today. I was warmly welcomed and shown love." This was Aggie's first pregnancy and she had to go through a lot of counseling. Little Bertha is scheduled to have a surgery soon. Please pray and encourage them as they begin their healing journey!
Bertha's Spina Bifida tumor was eventually removed successfully, and she was discharged from the hospital. Thank you so much for your prayers, support, and words of encouragement. They are expected to visit us again a few weeks from now. Please continue praying for complete healing while they are at home.
Hallelujah! Little Bertha has been discharged from the intensive care unit. "I thank God for taking us out of that room with loud beeps and so much suspense," Agnes spoke with a deep sigh of relief. Bertha will stay in the ward for some time while she is closely monitored before she is taken for her surgery. Please continue to pray that there will be no more complications as she continues her journey to full recovery.
Little Bertha woke up this morning with pale skin. She was immediately rushed to the ICU for blood transfusion and close monitoring. Her surgery won't be possible until she is stable enough. "No matter what, I am strong and I know God will heal my daughter."- Agnes affirmed. Let's stand in prayer and believe together with Agnes in the healing and recovery of little Bertha.
Leonard, our nurse, was doing a routine check on little Bertha while Agnes looks on. Bertha has jaundice, a condition common in preterm babies. The cause is often an immature liver. Symptoms are yellowing of the skin and whitening of the eyes. Our medical team are paying close attention to her as she stabilizes before undergoing her spina bifida surgery. "I am worried but I know I am at the right place and know that God is in control," Agnes spoke with hope. Please join us as we start the new journey of healing with faith and hope.
