Some angels have short hair!
by Dr Adoma Odame (a true story)

Deep in her heart, she knew something was very wrong with her little daughter. She had compared her with the kids playing around in their neighbourhood and had a feeling there was some thing going on. Her little daughter Irene didn't seem as lively as the others. She never could play with the other kids for long. Her cousins were rambunctious little kids and Irene could never keep up with all their antics. And yet Irene's mum hadn't been able to send the child to the hospital; there were always more pressing issues and well, Irene was growing...slowly…but still growing.

For a mum with no support, other issues took precedence over Irene's inability to play for long. Food, clothing, shelter were all more pressing than the inability of a child to play. One day, however, everything changed.

That morning, Irene seemed weak and the cough that she had experienced over the past two weeks simply wasn't improving.
She often had bouts of coughing but in this particular episode, her whole body would shake and she was losing weight. She seemed to be getting weaker and by evening, she was not breathing well. Her mum was now afraid she wouldn't last the night and quickly rummaged through her cloths looking for her susu box. She emptied it, picked up the weak child and stood by the roadside waiting with the child strapped to her back. The coughing episodes grew so intense and the little girl would sigh in exhaustion. Finally a taxi came and Irene's mum laid her on her lap as they drove off.

The taxi didn’t seem to move fast enough as Irene's mum anxiously looked at the rise and fall of the chest of her daughter. At times, it seemed as if the child would stop breathing, and Irene's mum would shake the child gently to hear the child whisper 'mama' reassuringly.

They finally reached the hospital and Irene's mum was stunned by the speed at which the child was whisked away to be attended to. The healthcare workers did their best and were finally able to stabilize the little child.

When the doctor came in to talk to Irene's mum, the only thing that registered was the word 'heart'. Her own heart missed a beat again. Heart diseases are expensive and difficult to handle. How could such a little girl get a heart problem? Was it the herbs she took in pregnancy? Was it the woman who lived next door who had cast an evil spell on the child? Was she being punished for sins she had commited years ago?
A 1000 questions went through her mind as she sat listening to the doctor.

Irene was stabilized and later asked to go for another test: an Echocardiography, to be done at Korle-Bu.

The magnitude of the problem now dawned on Irene's mum. Heading to Korle-Bu meant it was serious business. What she encountered there wasn't an error in diagnosis as she had hoped. She sat in the echo room and saw her child's heart on the screen of the machine and all of a sudden felt very afraid. How would she get her child's heart repaired?

She looked at the beating heart and wondered if it was time to lose Irene. Time to bury her child? It was like a nightmare with a picture of a child's unmarked grave flashing through her mind. Traditionally, children neither have funerals nor get proper graves. Irene’s mum shook her head to rid them of these thoughts, and yet they wouldn't stop flooding her mind.

She moved out to sit and wait for the report of the test. As she sat there, she heard the siren of an ambulance in the distance and something gave way in her. She burst into tears.

She couldn't hold back the flood of tears as she reckoned she had no one to turn to for help. No money, no help, just nothing. She couldn't stop crying. She wept her heart out. The end of Irene's life appeared in sight.

It was then that she felt someone hold her hand, lift her up and wiping her tears. She heard a soft voice with a British accent saying 'it’s ok, it’s ok, we will get help for you". Amidst the tears, she saw her angel; an angel with short hair - gray short hair.

The angel said, “I know a foundation that can help your little one”. Irene's mum thought she heard wrong, but she wiped her tears as she followed the angel, and what happened next was nothing short of a miracle. The angel took her to a room, took her details and called another group of angels: the Nii Okai’s Saving Hearts Foundation (NOSHF). Within days Irene had her life-changing heart surgery done, fully paid for by the angels from NOSHF.

Days later, Irene's mum looked at her sweet kid lying on the bed and everything was different about her. She was bubbly, full of life and blowing bubbles. The only reminder of what had happened was the huge plaster on her chest.
The angels had made it happen. The hospital ward door opened and in came a doctor to check on the kid. Irene blew bubbles at the doctor like any other kid would. As the doctor interacted with the kid, Irene's mum said to herself, “we need to advise those who act as angels in movies; Some angels have short hair”.
