photos - various - part 1

2 of the 3 Muskateers went to Cap Haitian to see Dr. Scott Nelson, the orthopedic surgeon with Cure International. Lovely Nelson (the middle child) has Potts Disease (TB of the spine). The doctor said he would follow up with her in another year. Lucson Jean (boy on the right) also has Potts Disease and his back vertebrae have severely been bent. The doctor said if he operated Lucson would die. Pray for the 3 Muskateers, as we seek help for them.

This is a side view of the curvature of Lucson's spine.

Islande Berlis was selected for surgery. The doctor said that she needed an amputation of the larger fingers(toe?). He said that the deformity also caused the deformity and caused the swelling of her lower arm too.

The surgery was performed on Wednesday and Amos, Islande and her mother traveled back to Port-au-Prince on Friday.

With this partial hand amputation she will now be able to manipulate her other fingers. She will be staying here at Coram Deo while her hand heals. Please keep her in prayer.
