photos - various - part 1

Fonise Cadeau is Tim's "younger sister". This photo was taken in February 2009 just before she went back to the Cayes countryside to live with her mother. A couple of weeks ago she came to visit while Tim was here. It was sad to see how sick she was. She went from a healthy young adult to a malnourished, weak young adult.

She was hospitalized and her hemoglobin was only 5.4. The anemia was caused by typhoid and h. pylori.

Her skin color now looks healthier after receiving 3 bags of blood. We give the Lord thanks for His healing mercies.

CDTI (Hopital Sacre Coeur) is one of the newer hospitals in Port-au-Prince. They have excellent equipment and we brought Lesita Joseph here to get a sonogram done of her large abdomen that has been growing since 2007.

The sonogram shows that she has a large cyst. Pray we can find a hospital that will help her. The doctor who interpreted the sonogram results told us that eventually she would die as her diaphragm gets pushed up making it difficult to breathe.
