Update on Emebet!

The surgeries have begun!!  From what our friend in Ethiopia has told us…Emebet was completely ready to begin. It’s a pretty long road for her and I am inspired by her bravery.

From the doctor on Friday.

Emebet was operated yesterday. I decided to operate both knee joints.
All contracting scar tissue was excised. Both joints were extended to quite some degree following the scar excision. An external fixator keeps both joints in the new extended position. The knee joints will gradually be more and more extended over the coming 1-2 weeks. Skin graft will be done once the joints are fully extended.

Please continue to keep her and her family in your prayers. I will keep you updated!

I cannot wait to see her in April-- I am hoping she is well enough to dance before the Lord with me!

Blessings to you all for being part of her story!
