We had to reschedule Mintesanew's original surgery date because he became ill near his original date. Sick kids can't go under anesthesia, thus the delay.
We spoke with Mintesanew's brother-in-law last week, which is funny, but he was here with his daughter, which is Esene (Mintesanew's niece), and he said that Mint is no longer sick, but due to transportation issues, they were waiting for Esene's treatment to be complete before they brought him back to CURE. Since she got her cast off today, that means that hopefully they'll be scheduling that appointment for him soon.
As soon as we have a new date, you'll be the first to hear, and if the delay is too long, we will connect you with another specific child in a CURE hospital.
