Moses is still with us!!!!!

Moses is still with us!!! I am so happy with that. Yesterday I really thought that he was going to die, even the doctor thought so. We do not give up, but you keep it in your head. After I instructed the tow staff on night duty last night, I went back twice to check on him. I also told the staff to call me when anything would change. But he stabilised. No more convulsions, good temperature and the breathing was also going well. No vomiting and no diarrhoea. This morning I decided to take him off the oxygen, we have a little machine who can measure the saturation (oxygen in the blood). It was quite stable, it sometimes went a bit down, but then he was able to bring in back to the normal. He sleeps now peacefully and today we were able to get a urine sample to test. We also did another malaria test. The malaria test came out good, no more malaria, but the urine showed that there is a urine infection. So after talking with Dr. Engulu, we started him on IV antibiotics. Today I have been able to do some other work again, yesterday I didn't want to leave Amecet in case that..... But today was a good day, Moses is not yet fine, but on his way towards it. And tonight...I will have a good night of sleep!! 


  1. Wat ben ik blij Els! Ik dacht het ook. Leefde erg met jullie mee. Hopen dat hij snel geneest van zijn urineweginfectie maar fijn dat hij geen malaria meer heeft. Goed om te horen.

    Het blijft een heel mooi mannetje. Mooie foto.

    Ik ben trots op je Els!


  2. Oh wat een opluchting om dat te lezen, dank voor het delen. En ik sluit me bij de woorden van Marije aan.
