Orphan boy with broken neck in need of urgent and expert spinal treatment

Update posted by Althea Mason On Sep 16, 2020

On Friday 11th September we believed Luce was to have surgery. However, a different Doctor examined his eye and decided to postpone the surgery. he believes there is improvement and doesn't want to interfere again as yet. In two months he will be reviewed again. Thank you to those who have donated to his care. I will now stop this fund me page as it was adding on to the previous one for Heng. We will hold the donated funds for Luce's medical care. Please contact me if you have any queries or concerns. Thank you

We praise God that Heng has full movement of his limbs. he plays football, rides a bicycle and manages his schoolwork. His left hand still has a little fine tuning but he can mostly do all things. We see his recovery as a miracle. Thank you to all who assisted with the hospital and recovery expenses.

The left-over money not needed for Heng went to Luce who required eye surgery. He has remained with us since January for follow-up appointments.

Today, Luce is requiring a second surgery to help improve and restore sight to his right eye. In January he was brought out of the refugee camp for surgery to his injured eye. The camp hospital did not have the required facilities. He no longer has the initial ongoing pain that he had but today needs further surgery for a fluid build up behind his eye. (As I understand it). All his expenses must be paid by donations as there is no government assistance for a boy from the refugee camp. The cost for today's surgery is $3,500.00.

ARE YOU ABLE TO HELP?

Please pray for him and for restoration to his sight.

Our little boy from the Children's village in the refugee camp has had surgery to his right eye. He had a detached retina that has been repaired and some other repairs or corrections that I do not understand. His surgery was on the 3rd february. Last week he had an outpatient appointment which went well and he needs to go back in another month. he will then be fitted for glasses which will greatly improve his sight in both eyes.

We are very happy for Luce and he is overjoyed to finally be on the road to recovery. He has become part of our KJRC family very quickly and is loved by everyone. Luce is a happy boy and is enjoying his time with us.

His surgery, medicines and two pairs of glasses is around 100,00.00THB (We cannot give an accurate amount until we have purchased the glasses.) The surgery alone was 77,000.00. Thank you for everyone who donated for heng and his recovery and have also made it possible for Luce to have greatly improved sight.

Thank you

I care for two children's villages in the refugee camps and in one of them is a young man who is 10 years old ( I will call him Luce). He has had an eye injury. Several months ago some liquid from a cactus tree dropped in his right eye when the cactus branches were being cut. He didn't say anything at the time and his right eye became very sore. Luce was taken to the camp hospital but treatment has not been very effective. We established that he has pain 4/10 every day in his right eye and his sight is very poor. His eyesight in his left eye is poor and will require glasses to help with his vision.

He has recently joined us at KJRC and is having treatment at a hospital in Chiangmai. In early February he will have surgery on his right eye. Luce is not a Thai citizen and therefore all treatment must be paid for in full. We would like to use the money we have left from Heng to cover the medical costs for Luce.

We pray that he will soon be pain free and be able to study much better with improved sight. luce has two siblings who live with him in the refugee camp home.

Thank you for making such dramatic improvements possible.

Heng has had such a remarkable recovery and although he still struggles with fine hand movement such as writing he can do most things and continues to improve as he practices the finely tuned movements. He was very happy to take part in the games we played on New Years Eve.

We are so grateful to all of you who made his recovery as comfortable as possible and provided for all of his needs.

There are funds left over and if it is okay by all of you who donated for Heng, we would like to put it in a medical fund. We already have another boy in need. See the next update.

Thank you for caring and supporting our children.

Heng is so happy to be home amongst his friends. he is doing so well and we all believe he is a miracle. he knows that people all around the world are praying for him. We thank God for his progress.

he goes to rehab once a week and we do exercises for him at home. he has fine tuning to do with his hand so we have set him up wit typing lessons and the piano to play. he needs encouragement to keep at it. Only he can do the exercises and get those fingers working.

Heng had an Outpatient appointment and the Dr was amazed when he saw Heng walk in. He never expected to see him walking. he asked Heng to raise both arms which he did. The Dr couldn't believe it and just said Wow!!

My staff reminded the Dr that we are Christian and also reminded him that when we were told Heng's spinal cord damage was permanent, we said we would pray for a miracle. We prayed and we believe that God answered that prayer. Heng is our miracle.

Progress continues, prayers continue and Heng's smile doesn't fade. He has even managed a couple of half days at school!!

We are so excited for Heng to be at home. His rehab will continue and we have some alterations to make and exercise equipment to buy and create.

He has all of us to encourage him and remind him to keep his foot straight ( he drags his left foot to the side ) and to use his left hand instead of his right hand.

To have him join us for worship and see him at home is a MIRACLE.

We are so grateful for all the prayers and donations that have enabled a more comfortable and better equipped recovery.

THANK YOU.

Whenever I visit Heng, I leave smiling because he is such an inspiration. He smiles that winning smile when anyone walks in the door. It was great to see him in physio with every day enabling something new!

Yesterday Heng was up and walking between two poles and holding on with both his hands. He is amazing. Today he had a showers for the first time on a shower chair and went out in the sunshine in a wheelchair.

He has been so blessed by so many of you praying for his recovery. Those prayers are being answered every day. 🙏🏼 Thank you.
