Lissa died on Thursday afternoon. Little babies usually do, their bodies can just not take the shock of Kwashiorkor on their system at such a young age. She was 3 months old and weighed 4 pounds.
This is Makenlove #3 he is 21 months old and weighs 19 pounds. He has kwashiorkor, vomiting, fever and cough.
The kwashiorkor is so bad that his legs are splitting open. He is eating fair and this is his first time with kwashiorkor.
This is Rosemonde. She is 12 months old and weighs 10 pounds. She is suffering from fever and kwashiorkor. She makes child number 8. The family states that the mother went crazy after Rosemonde was born and died a few months ago.
This is Mirlene. He is 6 months old. He weighs 5 pounds. His mom said that did not want to breastfed him. So she decided to give him sugar water and flour. He has had kwashiorkor one time. He has lost his suck reflex. We are working with a syringe to get him to drink. He is in bad shape. Will you pray for him?
This is Frandes. He was burned at his home with with hot water. He is 20 months old. He lives a 6 hour walk one way from the clinic. So he is staying with us for daily dressing changes until his burn area heals.
This is Sophia. She is 3 months old and weighs 7 pounds. The mother died right after she was born. Dad (in picture) has been trying to feed her but needs to go work in the fields to provide for the other children.
Remember Rosalie??? The one that had the terrrible, huge, infected heal. She was going to leave to have her foot amputated the morning after the flood. This is her foot when it started falling apart.
This is the day the back of her heal fell off.
Here it is today. Nothing but a miracle and Roslie thanks Him for it everyday.
Here is Kelly at his new home. He is putting a decoration on the christmas tree
This is Berline. She has been here for several months. Her dad comes and visits every Tuesday. He stays the whole day and cries the whole time. He said if she would die he would not be able to live. He loves her so much and is going through so much with losing his wife (Berline’s mom).
She is doing fair and gaining weigh slowly. We talked and both felt it would be better, emotionally for the dad, if she returned home. He does not live that far away and can get here if she is having some type of problem. He was so thankful and I think she will do great with her dad.
