Gift has been in the hospital a couple weeks now. He is a calm and gentle seven year old who has no problem keeping himself busy even if that means riding the hospital hallways by himself in a wheel chair just so that he is doing some sort of activity.
Gift was born with a spinal condition which has caused his legs to be unnaturally bent. Having been born this way meant visits to the hospital very early on in his life. He received his first procedure when he was only a month old. This procedure was done by one of our CURE doctors and was important in laying a foundation for the procedures that Gift would later have.
When he and his mom came to CURE couple of weeks ago, he underwent surgery and was put in cast for recovery. He and his mom where discharged and asked to come at a later date for follow up.
Back home Gift wasn’t doing so well, he started developing bed sores inside his casts and then his sores then became infected. He was brought back to CURE to get those cared for. His overall treatment includes more procedures but he will not be able to make progress toward that until his sores have been treated. Please join us in praying for Gift's healing!
Gift went home on the 20th of December 2017. His caregiver Jenipher was taught on how to treat his sores. He was supposed to come back on the 8th of January 2018 for a checkup but hasn’t been back quite yet. We hope to see him soon!
Gift is doing well today. His sores are healing and he is wearing less and less bandages this week! Good sign! Gift along with other kids in the ward got their faces painted today! A local ministry was visiting our hospital and they brought clowns, drinks and face painting to cheer up our kids. We're so thankful for people like them and for you, our supporters, that step in to help and love the children we serve! Please be praying for speedy healing for Gift and for the sores on his feet.
Gift wasn’t at his bed when we went looking for him to see how his doing today. As we expected, he was somewhere In the ward with friends just hanging out! We love seeing him develop friendships with new and old kids coming to the hospital. He is doing well today and hasn’t complained about any discomfort in his legs! We are glad! Please be praying for quick healing for Gift's sores on his legs so that his next surgery can be scheduled!
Because of Gift's condition, he has stayed in the hospital longer than most of our other kids. This has given him time to develop friendships with almost all the kids here! He is not sad when his friends come and go and then new kids come, he is just excited to make more and more friends! We love his heart! Please be praying for Gift as he is healing from bed sores he developed while in recovery at home and that he would quickly move to the next stage of his healing.
