As I write this post Tha Way is spending the night in the hospital. This young man is 14 years old and has never walked. He went to the emergency room today for a broken femur. When they X-rayed him they found that he also had had 2-3 recent fractures in the last few weeks. The Baptist Hospital staff is going to splint his femur but also evaluate his case to see what else needs to be done. Please pray for him and his mother Ma Aye Kye.
This family arrived in the United States about a year ago. When they arrived, we found the brave mother, Ma Aye Kye had fled her homeland years earlier at the death of her husband. It is our understanding she witnessed her spouse being shot by the junta military. She has three children, two with brittle bones disease. They lived in a rural area of Burma and never had medical treatment to reset fractures the children received over the years. Consequently the children live with a high threshhold for pain and have adapted to their multiple contusions.
