Lots of updates

Sorry for taking so long giving an update. We have been blessed with hard working new and old volunteers and have had a recent influx of referrals from Haiti, Liberia and East Africa of children who need medical care desperately. We are working on updating the side bar to show the current children that we have waiting to come for medical care (but this will take several days.)

Heart Patients:
We had several children waiting for heart surgery from Haiti. We have been unable to get updates on these children since the earthquake in January. Please keep them in your prayers.

We have several new referrals from Haiti and some older referrals that have been waiting for a long time. One recent referral is a baby with a brain tumor. This child is not doing very well and his family has had so much loss in recent months. Please pray for them!

We still need cardio thoracic surgeons to help with the children who have caustic soda poisoning and neurosurgeons to help with two little ones who have hydrocephalus and need VP shunts.

East Africa:
We have several little boy babies waiting for specialists!

Raul in Romania:
Caroline was able to get Raul (baby with EB) approved for charity care and she is now waiting on Romania to process his approval to come over for medical care. Please keep this situation in your prayers.

Ermane from Haiti:
Ermane is doing well however he will need several more surgeries and his time here has been extended greatly. His mother has to return to Haiti this week so that she can start getting their lives back together post earthquake- she hopes to repair or have a new home soon and start her business back up. Ermane is feeling OK about staying without his Mom but certainly this is going to be difficult! Please keep them in your prayers as well.
