There has been a lot going on, this weekend. Let me give you an update about some of the things that were happening. This morning I found the dog who was operated on Saturday, dead on my veranda. After the operation she has been laying on my veranda. She was doing well, started to eat, was walking a little bit. She had problems with focusing with her one eye. It was even a bit funny, when she tried to eat, she started next to her bowl. This morning she was standing up and looked normal, I came back to my house, she didn't react anymore, and I checked her and she had just died. I called the Vet, he came and checked, he was shocked, didn't know what had caused her death, maybe an internal bleeding? The children were all sad and they helped Calvin to bury her. It was a beautiful strong dog and it is sad that she is gone.
An update on the accident of the Orem family and the 4 YWAM staff members. They are all doing well, the car has been brought to Soroti, we have to decide what to do with the car, the damage is severe.
Little baby Esther is still struggling. She was loosing every day a bit of weight, yesterday she went even under the 2 kg. Today she gained a little bit, but she is so fragile. There are no real problems, like fever, diarrhea or vomiting, but she is just not thriving.
Today I have been to the clinic next door with quite a number of children, not really serious things, but malaria, urine tract infection, tonsillitis etc. Sarah is really down, with fever and some other problems, the rest got also medication. We also took in a new girl, it was a child that has been with us before. Fiona went home when she was doing well, now she came back, 2 years later and her weight is 6 kg less than 2 years ago. She is very weak and it is so sad to see her so different than 2 years ago.
