Progress Report

While Thien Nhan is doing well, he's not healing from his genital reconstruction quite as quickly as the doctors in Italy had hoped. "The dressings have to be changed three times a day," reports his mom, Mai Anh. "I take him to the hospital here a few times a week for check-ups, and we also send photos to the Italian doctors regularly to be sure that everything is OK."

Hanoi's humid weather may be to blame for the slow healing process. Or the delay could be caused by wear and tear, since Thien Nhan gets around by jumping on one leg and this puts additional strain on his groin.

"In general he's doing fine," says Mai Anh. "We are very happy that the surgery is behind us."

I first learned of this tiny gift from God in the first article in VietNamNet a couple years ago. I cried. I sent a little money and read his blogs from the big party in Ha Noi. I cried again. Now I read of his continuing miracles and cry some more, with joy. How I wish I were wealthy to give more. God Bless You, Thien Nhan.

I have a son of the same age and they both have similar resemblance in terms of appearance...
I can't help but feeling sad for whatever little Thien Nhan has to go through...yet, I am extremely proud of him for being such an extremely brave boy...

Despite the cruelty actions of his biological parents, I thank God for blessing little Thien Nhan a devoted mum, Mdm Tran Mai Anh, her family, the doctors and endless people who cared so much for him...

Keep up the bravery little Thien Nhah...hang in there...God will always watch over you...you will always be in our prayers.. :)
