He is in great spirits, and so happy to be alive! He will need to be very careful in following doctor instructions to avoid infection and to let his body heal properly. He has an appt at Echauri hospital on Friday to get stitches out and his dressings changed.
For today I want to thank everyone who helped the family. I'm sure he will want to thank each and every one of you that held him and his family in your hearts during this ordeal. Your donations were essential to his getting the needed operation. Without a large downpayment the hospital would not admit him to surgery even though he was in excruciating pain!
He is getting set up at home so Dulce and his mom can care for him. There are bills to be paid, and loans to be repaid, and of course lost income. So if I missed anyone in the hurry to get to the hospital, please know that you can drop something off at their home, right behind the restaurant La Chora.
It's great to live in such a supportive community!
