Our little Thania passed away very unexpectedly last Tuesday night. Thania had been struggling for a while in the baby house and was not drinking very well there or gaining much weight. For the past few weeks she has been staying in the volunteer house with one to one care. She was being seen by a doctor fairly regularly for other health issues. In fact, the doctor looked her over earlier in the day and said she looked good. Once they got home she was very fussy and refused to drink. Thania passed away shortly after in the arms of our nurses. Her mother is also in the hospital and not doing well. Please pray for her and her older brother who is also sick (and being cared for by another Haitian woman in her home).
