Little Anna ...

This morning (Sunday) Anna was brought to Amecet by her uncle and her grandmother. Anna is a small baby of two weeks old. her weight is only 2.3 kg. She looked malnourished and she was running a fever. The story is sad again, her mother got complications after giving birth at home. It was in the middle of the night, it is almost impossible to get someone to a health Centre at night. She was brought later to health centre, by then she had lost a lot of blood and according to the uncle, there were also heart problems. The father of the baby had run off, so the family of the mother took care of everything. I see often that the baby is a bit overlooked in this kind of situation. All the attention goes to the mother and  the baby is a bit forgotten. The mother died after two weeks of struggle and that is probably why the baby is so small and weak. She is drinking well and we took her to the doctor to check. She is given antibiotics for 5 days. We pray that will recover and grow!
This is Dennis, who scared us so much some days ago! We discovered more wounds on his head and he also got a fever. After what happened 4 days ago, we were really scared to try to shave his head again. we took him to the doctor and he is put on medication again, but the doctor said to shave his head, so that we can also treat the wounds. So I did, we handled him carefully and he was doing well, it is now easy to clean the wounds and hair will grow back!!! He is also handsome without, I think.....
