UPDATE 28th March 2018:
Baby Troy went in for surgery yesterday, Tuesday March 27th 2018 for his skull to be separated to allow his brain to continue to grow normally due to his Crouzons Syndrome. After his surgery was done, he went into a critical condition and was admitted into ICU on a ventilator. With the doctors unsure whether Troy would make it through the night due to blood loss and breathing issues, we knew that only God could keep him alive. We did only what we knew to do, and that was to join together in unity and pray in the name that is higher than any other name, the name that defeated death, the name of JESUS!!
We are blessed to report today that Baby Troy is stable but still in a critical condition. He recognises Sharon and puts his hands up wanting her to pick him up. We know the Lord is with him. The same spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, dwells in Troy and He will give life and heal his little body. Glory be to God. Troy is now transferred to Paediatrics ICU & ventilated. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone that has been standing & praying with us.
Baby Troy was introduced to us by the local Social Services DSWD. He was in the holding area for abandoned, neglected abused children. This baby was abandoned and left on a tricycle… They guessed he was about 4 months but the scans show he is actually about one year old.
A small neglected, malnourished, abandoned little boy.
After 3 admissions to hospital with pneumonia and no orphanage being able to take care of him they asked me if I will care for Troy. I prayed about it and I felt the Lord saying to me "Nurse me this child." I said Yes lord though others were saying no. Troy looked unusual but I believe if God saved his life then there must be a purpose for him.
Just a week after he came to us, he was back in the hospital with his 4th bout of Pneumonia. Finally, after many doctors, Xrays, assessments and scans, we now know Troy has Crouzons Syndrome. His skull bones have fused together too early and his brain is pushing towards the front of his head.
Therefore he will need surgery to separate the skull bones so his brain can grow normally. These children usually have normal intelligence if they have the right treatment. Then on the last day in hospital, we discovered he also has Hirschprungs disease where the lower end of his bowel is too narrow and he will need surgery to fix that too, which is why his little belly swells up and he cant push things through easily.
All I can say is that God has a plan for this little guy. The fact that he survived against the odds and the Lord has brought him to a good and safe home, shows me that God has a purpose to his plan. The Lord will give him a good future and a hope.
Please continue to pray for miracles as we continue to care for this child with the love of Jesus our Lord.We are so very thankful to all our sponsors and partners who helped us to pay his medical bills.
