Daung Naw underwent a CT scan.

The CT scan revealed that there is no evidence of stenosis in Daung Naw’s airway. However, when the doctor removed the tracheal tube, Daung Naw started having difficulty breathing, so the doctor had to insert a new tracheal tube. Daung Naw has another follow-up appointment at the hospital in August.

Daung Naw is a four-year-old girl from Burma. She lives with her parents, grandmother and an older brother who goes to school. Her parents opened a copy and print shop in the village, and they both work together. According to her mother, Daung Naaw likes drawing and painting.

When she was born, she had a problem with breathing. The doctor placed her on oxygen for a few months. After that her throat became narrow and she was not able to breathe properly. She was referred to Mandalay Hospital and underwent a tracheostomy, which provides an airway passage to help her breathe.

Doctors want Daung Naw to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Daung Naw’s CT scan and care, scheduled for April 25.

Daung Naung says, “I want to be an actress. “

Tushabomwe

Tushabomwe is a 44 year old woman who lost her husband in 2009 when unfortunately they were attacked by gunmen in their house. Tushabomwe was shot in her thigh and she was pregnant with her third child, who luckily survived. Tushabomwe suspected the attack was planned by relatives and this forced her to move very far away to start a new life. She has not gotten married again. Tushabomwe works hard, selling dry produce such as beans in the nearby markets and was able to construct a three-room semi-permanent house for shelter. She later started small-scale farming as a way to generate food for her children. Her oldest is 15 years old and in secondary school class one, her second born in primary school class seven and her youngest is 10 years old and in primary school class four. She is proud to independently take care of her children, although it is a challenge. Tushabomwe developed a small swelling on her neck in 2019 and it kept on increasing in size as time went on. The swelling became prominent with severe pain. She went to a local health centre and was given tablets hoping that the swelling would reduce as well as the pain, but all this did not help. The swelling reduces and increases occasionally, currently, it is in its smallest size but after some time it increases in size and so does her pain. In its largest state, she has difficulty swallowing and speaking. She decided to come to Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center Rushoroza Hospital to seek medical advice and treatment. Doctors there told her that if not treated through a thyroidectomy, Tushabomwe may develop airway obstruction, thyrotoxicosis and further difficulty in swallowing. Tushabomwe says, “This condition hinders the smooth running of my business because of the pain. After surgery, I will be comfortable and I will take on my business activities and be able to take care of my family.”
