 We received a lab report on Roo and it showed he was severely anemic.  Everything else seemed okay and no malaria showed in the blood.
 From these photos we can see he is thin and doesn't feel well.   We are starting him on iron vitamins as we do not trust the blood supply for transfusions.
Thank you for your prayers for Roo and the work in Sierra Leone by Nazareth House Apostolate.  Its not easy, but we don't give up.
