Tetanus Boy Goes Home after 3 months

Jeremiah,(not his real name) finally went home this week after nearly 3 months in the ICU. A major struggle for all the ICU staff against the dreadful tetanus disease which he contracted from chronic wounds in his feet. He is here with the volunteer nurse Agatha from Italy who is helping to nurse and rehabilitate him. He is 5 years old but looks very undernourished. Immunisations against tetanus in Uganda are still not universal. We thank God for the hard work and dedication of all the ICU staff.
