One year old Phillipa Joy was recently brought to Mercy with shortness of breath, and was subsequently diagnosed with pneumonia. After a few days of treatment, she was feeling much better, breathing normally, and ready to go home.
Seventy-year-old John George was admitted to Mercy Hospital in November with a severe cough. Staff were initially concerned he might have tuberculosis, but happily he tested negative and is responding well to treatment.
“I was so much worse at home. I couldn’t walk by myself and after just a few steps I would be exhausted. I was coughing all day and all night. I couldn’t sleep because the coughing was so bad. I came to Mercy but honestly, I was hopeless that I would get better. But now I am so much better! I can walk, sleep and I am relieved from the coughing.”
Munda Yonjai was admitted to Mercy Hospital for one week with schistosomiasis and a serious kidney infection. “I came in a very bad state. I was not able to walk, not able to sit, not able to lay down on my back, not able to sleep. Now I am much better. I can walk, I can sit, I can lay down, and I am sleeping much better. I thank God and Mercy for all they have done for me!"
