A huge thank you to all our friends, family and colleagues for all your prayers and the love you have poured out onto us this week.
Dan is now improving! The first lot of medication didn’t seem to kick the malaria. On the third and final day of treatment he was still feeling pretty jolly shocking, so we went to our local health centre where the incredible Tash Brice is volunteering. Tash (a nurse from Down Under) has given Dan incredible care and attention over the past few days. After a blood slide showed there was still a small percentage of parasites in his blood, she gave him some IV fluids and a stronger malaria treatment intravenously. She then called to our hut for two ‘home visits’ yesterday to give him further malaria treatment via injections. This treatment is a lot stronger, and it goes straight into the blood system.
Dan is now walking around and giving his doting wife some cheek, certainly the signs of being on the road to recovery. He is feeling a lot better, however still quite weak. Small steps, good rest and a good diet to come!
Praise God for:
- All of you who have been there for us (even on the other end of an email or Facebook message, it’s been great!)
- The incredible Tash Brice who is certainly a God-send to us and Gulu
- Dan making good progress
