I got this email from Barb this morning.  I'll add this message to her thread, but I wanted to ask urgently for your prayers.
--------------------------------------------------------------


I received an email this morning.

"

This is to confirm that a patient with suspected Ebola virus came to G earlier today (Wednesday).  A young man who became ill while working in Lagos and returned to Niger (their home is  SK just east of us) today by his brother.  Since being here, he has shown no symptoms. 

 

He is isolated in the room at the east end of the old OB unit for observation.  His brother is not ill, but as they traveled together and were in close contact, we will also monitor his temperature"

This is a suspected case and not confirmed.  So far he is not manifesting symptoms of a hemorrhagic fever but would appreciate your prayers for the staff and our patients.  

Many of our patients are extremely sick with multiple diseases and malnutrition.  Surgeries that would normally heal well in the states do not do well here because of the poor state of the patient.  Wounds fall apart, abdomens open up, and the bowels break down easily.  As a result, please continue to pray that the Ebola virus would not come to G and that this patient does not have Ebola since the spread of this virus will wipe out a lot of the healthy people that are malnourished and anemic in the area let alone our patients who are in worse shape.  Secondly, many of these patients do not know the Lord and this is a far worse consequence than the former.  

Thanks for your prayers as always.  I've got to run to the hospital but I wanted to get this out so that your supplication to the Lord will uplift those here, especially those caring for this particular patient.   Barb

Got an update from Barb today.   Looks like we dodged the bullet this time, thank God.  I'm sure they could use continued prayers anyway.
-----------------------------

Thanks for prayers everyone but I believe that the patient that was suspected of Ebola turned out to be a false alarm.  No symptoms consistent with Ebola and according to one of the nurses, he was discharged.  There still is no case reported here in Niger and the case in Nigeria, I believe is in the south of the country and not the North so we are praising God.  Got to run, I am on call tonight and this weekend.   Barb
