Update for Adama

Thank you for your prayers for Adama, who has been suffering from symptoms that resemble epilepsy.

Last week, Magnus accompanied Adama to the Cottage Children’s Hospital in Freetown. She received a consultation with a Doctor who recommended a series of clinical tests, including a blood count to detect any present disorders, such as malaria and typhoid, and a brain scan. 

Adama was given a referral to Cannaught Hospital, which is the largest hospital in Sierra Leone, and Magnus again took her for the next consultation. It was explained that the further tests and scan, which can help to ascertain whether the condition is suspected epilepsy, cannot be carried out yet due to the current Covid-19 situation. 

We will keep you posted about Adama’s progress and thank you for your continuing prayers for her tests, treatment and full recovery. In the meantime, we give thanks that her condition has not worsened and she is continuing to take medication that has been recommended whilst awaiting further investigation. 

The cost of treatment Adama has received so far of 380,000 Leone (approximately £32) has been covered, but in addition to the health costs, Magnus has needed to take two days out from work in order to take Adama to the hospital appointments in Freetown. 

As Magnus reaffirmed: “It will be such a blessing when the new health centre at Brama is completed”.
