Supports for Juan Fdez Extremities

Supports for Juan Fernandez extremities

Life can change in a second.
It all started April 29,2018, when my brother Juan Fernandez (AKA: Leo) was taken to the Emergency room (Presbyterian Hospital ) with a kidney pain. The doctors informed the family that Mr. Fernandez will be having a surgery that will take around 40-45 minutes. However, not everything came out as expected. When my brother came out of the surgery room the doctors informed the family that they have to take him to intensive care because his blood pressure was super low and he developed a infection ( in his blood) that was espreding threw out his body. The next day the doctors had a meeting with several doctors and the family to informed us what can happen in the best and worst case scenario of all the medicine they have to give him in order for him to stay “ stable.” However, because of all the medication giving to him my brother went into septic shock. 
Septic shock occurs when you experience a significant decrease in blood pressure that leads to problems such as organ failure, amputations and even death. After several days the doctors informed the family that Juan had suffered a severe sepsis which caused him several amputations( part of both of his arms and both legs). Our warriors never stop fighting for his life. It has been extremely hard for all his family especially him. Which is why we ask anyone for a small economic collaboration to raise funds to buy prosthetics. Thanks you to all generous soul who can join our noble cause.

Soportes para las extremidades de Juan Fernandez

La vida puede cambiar en un segundo. 
Todo comenzó el 29 de abril del 2018 cuando mi hermano Juan Fernández (como todo le decimos Leo) fue llevado a la sala de emergencia con un dolor en los riñones, el médico le indica que le debia hacer una pequeña cirugía que duraria de 40 a 45 minutos en la cual le pondria un pequeño tubo para que volviera en 2 semanas pero no todo salió como esperabamos. Cuando mi hermano salió de la cirugía los médicos nos dicen que hay que llevarlo a cuidadado intensivo porque se le bajo la presión y cogió una infección en la sangre. Al otro dia los médicos se reunen con los familiares para explicarnos las posibles alternativas y las consecuencias de los medicamentos, antes las cuales nosotros aceptamos pero debido a la cantidad excesiva de medicamentos y medidas extremas su cuerpo entro en shock septico.
El shock septico ocurre cuando experimenta una disminución significativa de la presión arterial que conduce a problemas como fallo de órganos, amputaciones y hasta la muerte. Pero Dios siempre ha estado de nuestro lado después de varios dias los médicos nos informan que el sufria de una sepsis grave la cual causó varias amputaciones. A traves de este difícil momento nuestro guerrero sigue con la esperanza de tener un soporte para sus extremidades, razón por la cual le solicitamos a cualquier persona una pequeña colaboración económica para recaudar fondos para comprar las protesis. 
Miles de gracias a todas almas generosas que se puedan unir a nuestra noble causa.
