Continuing with the same theme, here are some other other people I saw that random Saturday.
|This little guy is wiped from malaria but is getting better.|
|This is the first smile I'd seen in this guy. He has received four operations to drain infection from various parts of his body. He has been a trooper, and you can't help but root for him.|
|This little guy has neonatal sepsis. 1% of kids in Congo die the first day, and 4% die by the first month. We are hoping this guy can get through the 1st month.|
|Another little one worn out by malaria but better after a blood transfusion. We do about 40 transfusions a month, and the majority are for kids with anemia from malaria.|
|You guessed it! Malaria again, but this time with more symptoms. Other infections tend to pop up after malaria so we are keeping a close eye on him|
|We treated him with oral solutions for a stomach flu. Something he would've received an IV for in the states. He is doing better.|
|This cutie is 15 months old but only weights 5kg! Thankful for our malnutrition program pushing hope back into these families.|
|Here waiting to complete the first month of Tb treatment|
|This man is not that sick, but he heard we were back and dropped off this pineapple for us. Humbled. This would get a good price in the market, but he wanted us to have it. Its hard to explain how much this means to us.|
|This cheerful lady his waiting for a surgery and hoping she doesn't have cancer.|
More posts are coming soon. Thanks for your prayers and your partnership. We try to remember 1 Cor 15:58 as we settle in here.
