Mako relapsing...

Unfortunately, I received word from James that Mako has relapsed and the illness that plagued him last week has reared its ugly head again... Here is the email that I received from James in Freetown:
Hey Mama Hicks,

Mako here with us at St. Laurence House. He since yesterday beginning to sense same ill signs as he was in Kabala. Not too good at all, i had to drive to pick him up for he just cant feel too good at all. He will spend the night with us and we see what to do tomorrow. I am so troubled again and need lots of prayers.
This is a bad new but have no option but to share it. Its really crazy here. I thought he was resting but with sudden illness again, am so discourage.
Thanks and greetings to all.


I have talked with James & Kadijah by phone and they are doing all they can to keep Mako stable throughout the weekend until they can get to a doctor on Monday Morning. James will talk with Pa Foday tomorrow and find out news on Lucy's condition at that time. The picture is of Mako as he helped purchase the zinc sheeting for Robarrie Village.
