Moses 2 is fighting for his life

Moses came into Amecet on Febr. 7, just after Moses 1 had passed away. (see Blog Feb. 7). We got some problems with him, he was on IV drip. But after that he seemed to get better and was drinking good. On Sunday I felt, he was not drinking so well any more, so on Monday morning I took him for malaria test, and it came out positive, Moses 2 had malaria. We started the treatment and it was going normally, until last night. They called me and I rushed to Amecet, he was very weak and dehydrated. No diarrhoea or vomiting, I took him to the clinic, next door and there they assets him and gave him a cannula for IV drip. I took him back to Amecet and put the drip on. This morning I took him back to the doctor, he listened to his lungs and checked him, he would be ok, he thought. This afternoon his breathing changed suddenly, I quickly put him on our oxygen machine and we called Dr.Engulu, our neighbour. He came directly and examined him, we gave some medicines, but we don't know why he suddenly got so much worse, he also had some convulsions, while his temperature was low. No symptoms of meningitis or cerebral malaria. The doctor also doesn't know what is happening with Moses. I have called his aunt, who lives in Soroti, they are right now sitting at his bed. He is very sick, difficult breathing, in spite of the oxygen machine. It is scary how fast this can go.We hope for the best and pray that God has mercy on this little boy.


  1. Els,

    Wat heftig om te lezen en wat frustrerend omdat er geen oorzaak te achterhalen lijkt.

    Heel veel sterkte in deze strijd. Hopen op het beste.

    In gedachten bij jullie.
