"This child knows too much for his age," says Aliness, "If I leave him alone with anyone for a while, he will tell me everything he saw and heard, that is how smart he is." Maambo was born with clubbed feet, and although he has difficulty walking because of his condition, there's no stopping him! He makes sure his presence is felt wherever he is. We are excited to be able to give him the treatment he needs here at CURE so that his feet will always be able to keep up with his big personality!
After quite a bit of time in the hospital, Maambo was discharged today! But it's not the end yet for him. He is just going home because he is better and fit enough to go and recover from there. He will be back for review in a little while. It's so nice to see him go, yet sad at the same time because we will miss him!
Maambo has been feeling a little low today. He had a dressing change a few days ago and had been crying from the pain. That has improved a little and now he is crying because he misses home. Hopefully, he will feel a lot better tomorrow!
"Look at me and take a picture," Maambo called out today when he saw us. This little champ's healing has progressed impressively! He will be going for a cast change and assessment for surgery for his other foot on Tuesday. Please keep praying for him!
Maambo went for surgery yesterday, and our doctor performed an operation on one of his feet to allow him to be mobile while it heals, then they will operate on his other foot. He is recovering well in the ward today, please keep your prayers coming!
Meet Maambo. This little boy is going to be a doctor someday and he knows it! That is why he is all over the hospital trying to prove a point that disability is not inability. We will be with him for a while as he is going for surgery soon.
