Maybe some of you read our first 3 versions of "her legs were made for walking"? It is a long story, we had a long break, because of the wounds on Gloria's heels. But the wounds are healed and we decided today that we will start the splints again. It is not an easy decision, because we know that Gloria will cry a lot, but it is necessary, Gloria will never walk, when we are not tough on her now. So today is the day!
First we gave together with Gloria, splints to her little mouse. The mouse was with her all the way and seems to give her comfort, so the mouse has also splints!!!
Gloria thought it was interesting and she helped sticking the tape around the leg of the mouse, but her eyes went at times to her own splints, which were laying next to her.
And after a while of screaming and crying she was so exhausted that she felt asleep on the veranda outside. Of course with the mouse!
It won't be an easy time for Gloria, and also not for us. But we have to be firm, we made a schedule for her and she has to wear her splints, even she is very angry at us. Pray that she will not get wounds and that we see progress.
This is baby George, he is only 11 hours old! He was born early this morning at home. The delivery went ok, but then the mother started to bleed, they tried to bring her to a hospital, on a bicycle, but she died on the way. So sad, a beautiful little boy with such a sad and difficult start in life. His weight is 2.8 kg. We pray he will grow and be a blessing to his father!
