There is hope.
This is a picture of Mamush and his mom. He is 1 week old with Downs Syndrome and an imperforate anus (unable to stool). They were told at birth at the local health center that there was no hope and the mom took him home to die. 5 days later when the baby wasn’t dead, she thought what is going on? She asked a family friend, a nurse at our hospital, if anything could be done. Mamush came to our hospital the next day and had life saving abdominal surgery. I took care of him before and after surgery. He is still in the hospital and feeding well.
This is a story of a mom who had a child she thought would die and he was brought back to life.
What a hope we have and what hope we offer, both in this world and the next to come.
