Several people asked how it is going with Michel.... He is walking on crutches as you can see..... He got the operation, and they had to put metal pins in his leg. It was a big operation and still he has a long way to go... He is not allowed to put weight on his leg yet, allowing the bone to get stronger. Michel is very good, he is co-operative and also very happy to be out of the hospital and back in Amecet.
This are the metals in his leg, and they have to be in at least, for 2 months. We went to the doctor today to let it clean and to check how it is going. Michel was not happy about that... We ask your prayers for this healing process, Osteomyelitis is serious and a lot can go wrong.
We have a German team with us at the moment, they have been a blessing with medical advice (two nurses and one doctor) and also in fixing many thing (+one handy man)! One of the things they blessed us with were new aprons for the staff! At the right two Kitchen Aprons and then the aprons fro the caretakers... Vielen dank!!!!!!
We are quite full, at the moment, I think, 27 children. We got this afternoon a new baby of 7 weeks in Amecet. The mother is in police custody , she killed her 4 year old daughter and she wanted to kill the baby as well. There are even old scars on the head of the baby... We took the baby to the doctor, she has malaria and a pneumonia. This little girl went to a lot already and she is only 7 weeks old!! Just at 5 pm, a boy of maybe, 11 years was brought by the Probation officer, if he could stay for one night? Tomorrow they will bring him back to his family in the village. So now we have probably 28 children in the home.
