The little girls are real fighters...

We are back in Soroti! After all the traffic jams in Kampala it is always so nice to come back to Soroti. It is quiet and friendly and it was so good to see the children again. The two premature girls are real fighters, they are hanging in there. We can't say there is a break through yet, but they are still with us. Every little progress we count! Eunice is still a bit deheydrated, but they can't find a vein to put the canulla in, so we feed her every hour and she is tolerating it, she is not getting worse. And Evelyn has also little problems, still feeding by NG tube, her diarrhea stopped, but yesterday she had some blood in her stools, so we have to keep a close eye on that, also check her HB for aenemia. A new little boy was brought by the police, left behind in the hospital. He might be 8 months or so. he looks like to have a braindamage. He cries a lot!!!!!
This is Steven getting the hearing test. Being held by Rachelle. He does hear some sounds, but they need to do more investigation, probably a small operation to see if there is a blockage or a bigger problem in the inner ear.
After the ear test we went to Mengo Hospital in Kampala for the eye test. They concluded there, that he react a little on light, but that he doesn't follow. They have to do more tests under anaestatics, to see inside the eye throug the pupil. we had to come back for that, we asked if we could do that in Tororro Eye hospital, it is so costly to go to Kampala every time, the fuel and than accomodation. That was fine, the doctor wrote a letter and we have to go to Tororro. I felt a bit disappointed, I knew he had mayor problems, but I thought that his eye sight was better than what they said.
We drove back to Soroti again via Lira, saw a lot of monkeys and arrived at around 8 pm in Amecet. We have to do the follow up, but it is no emergency, we know now hat we thought, but hoped was not true. Please pray for Steven and also keep on praying for the little girls, we need a break trough!!
