Aye underwent a CT scan.

The results showed an increase in size of the herniated part of bilateral ventricles. The doctors inserted a VP shunt to remove excess cerebrospinal fluid. Aye is feeling much better and doctors have scheduled a follow up appointment.

Aye’s mother says, “I am crying most of the time to see my daughter’s suffer from illness but now I am happy to see she looks better.”

Aye is a 13-month-old baby girl from Burma.

Aye was born with a meningocele, a mass on the back of her head. Over time, Aye’s mother has noticed that the mass on her daughter’s head has gradually grown. The mass hurts when touched, which causes Aye to cry often and sleep poorly.

Aye underwent surgery to remove the mass, and a post-op CT scan revealed enlarged ventricles in Aye’s brain. The doctor who operated on Aye wants to get a follow-up CT scan to see if any of her symptoms remain.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $693 to cover the cost of the scan, scheduled to take place on July 17.

Lydia

Lydia is a small-scale farmer and a mother of seven. Her husband is also a small-scale farmer and their eldest child is now 50 years old. They own a four-room mud house and work hard to try to make ends meet for their family. Over 20 years ago, Lydia began to experience troubling symptoms, including neck pains and a small swelling which she initially thought would disappear on its own but it did not. Currently, she suffers from airway obstruction and can no longer climb hills comfortably. She very much likes playing and dancing (traditional dances) with her grandchildren but no longer does so comfortably in her current condition. She was scheduled for a surgery appointment at Kabale Referral Hospital about four months ago, but had to cancel because she was unable to raise the funds for surgery. She has now come to Rushoroza Hospital to seek treatment for her multi-nodular goiter, which is an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland. She needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Lydia receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on December 14th. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $333, and Lydia and her family need help raising money. Lydia says, “I hope to finally get relieved of the goitre through surgery because I have lived in this undesirable condition for quite long. I hope to continue with farming comfortably after my treatment.”
