Faces of Haiti: Update on Fabie

A couple of months ago, I wrote an update on Fabie, the little girl we met in Haiti with the severe burns on her neck and chest. A friend emailed this picture to us yesterday. Fabie had her first surgery to reconstruct her neck in late February. The surgery was pretty traumatic for such a young girl, but she pulled through and is recovering well as far as I know. Unfortunately she developed an infection in her leg (one of the graft sites), and was hospitalized to treat it.
She is a rambunctious little girl and had a little trouble honoring the doctor’s orders to take it easy following her surgery. J She has to wear a neck brace while her neck heals, and she will have more surgeries in the future.
But Fabie is one step closer to having mobility in her neck and living a normal life! Our God is so good!
