ALFERES FIGHTING MALARIA CONVULSIONS
Thursday morning, 10 a.m., Alferes, our construction trainee who was receiving treatment for malaria, began having severe spasms in his right arm. Our staff rushed him to the hospital where all 4 of his limbs began to spasm as he tried to walk into the emergency room.
Alferes, our hero (above left) who saved baby Angelica when she had a febrile seizure.
He remained conscious, but seemed mentally distant. IV malaria meds along with powerful IV antibiotics and anti-seizure meds were immediately given. It took repeated IV meds and fervent prayer before his body became calm about 6pm, 8 hours after these episodes began.
He will continue IV treatments for the next 6 days, and only a mild arm spasm was seen once on Saturday. PTL ALFERES is improving, but not “out of trouble yet”.
PLEASE keep him in your prayers this week. He has a bright future and needs his body working 100%.
THE RACE IS ON AS MOTHERS CORRAL 5 TINY TOTS!
All but 3 of the 8 tiny tots in the Zebra House are now walking! We praise their advancement, but it does keep the mothers hopping! In the afternoon lull between meals, it is PLAYTIME with these precious little ones.
PLAYTIME PHOTO SHOWS ALL BUT CHEBANE, WHO WAS SLEEPING.
PLAYTIME at the Zebra House! They won’t be small for long. All but 3 now walking.
FRONT (L to R): Gilda, Juma, Fatima.
MIDDLE: Adelina, Julho, Maezinha
FAR BACK: Tiny Suzanna, our youngest at 15 weeks, now 4kg/8.8 lbs. That is an incredible increase of 1.4kg/3lbs since July 10th when we received her into our family.
They are growing/changing so fast, it is hard for me to fathom that they all came here as malnourished infants.
Roommates Mazinha, left, and Adelina on right, braving a cold morning to be first in the sandbox.
Julio decides he likes the girls next door!
Chebane super happy in his new home.
THANK YOU FOR KEEPING THEM IN PRAYER, AND SUPPORTING THIS TINY TOT HOME THAT GIVES THEM A PLACE TO LIVE.
