Several weeks ago I talked about hospital pictures. Finally managed to get a few. Sorry about the poor quality as I was trying to be really subtle and not look like I was taking pictures for the most part.
Abraham finally stopped vomiting blood on Friday and was discharged Saturday but after being in the hospital for seven days never received a diagnosis (and was only seen by a physician 3 times and had labs done once). Next week Monday the plan is that Abraham, his father Emma, a member of their church (for translation purposes) and I will head to Kampala to attempt to get some real treatment for Abraham's condition. I'm learning that many children, boys especially, between the ages of 3 and 7 are dying in rather high numbers due to this unknown condition. It seems that 7 did last week while Abraham was in the hospital. The doctor told me that they really started seeing it in 2008 and have not yet determined a course of action. He has been on prednislone for nearly 4 months now but it isn't changing anything. So feel free to pray for us as we go that I won't lose my salvation over frustration in a ridiculous medical system. (Remember this and this?)
