Haitian Community of Minnesota A heartfelt thanks to everyone who is helping Philome. I just returned from Haiti to see Philome. I'm glad to let you know that everything went well with the most recent surgery. Philome's rectum has been reconstructed. He still has his stoma while he heals. The nurses at the hospital have become very close to Philome, but he finally went home, on his birthday! He will recovery at home and make regular visits back to Port-a-Prince for dilation and to check for infection. As part of his recovery he is getting a nutritional drink (ensure) to help him recover. He will go back in two months to have his stoma closed and have his colon reconnected. Hopefully, his final surgery!
There were lots of kids dying while I was in Haiti, but God protected Philome with all the surgery and Dr. Lousima, the wonderful surgeon. Philome really believes in God and appreciates what you all have done for him.
Please continue to help. There are many more children like Philome who need your prayers and support.
