David Perez

David Perez was hospitalized on Thursday June 21st, 2018  with a brain bleed that caused some swelling of the brain and caused his left side of brain to shift over to the right side. He had to have a major surgery - a Craniotomy (removal of part of the skull) - to evacuate the brain bleed. David needed 58 surgical staples in his head to seal the wound. Unfortunately after surgery, it was revealed that he had suffered a stroke from the brain bleed. It occasionally affects David's right side of his brain, but mostly it affects his motor skills and is making his speech difficult at times. He has had some episodes (where his right side completely goes weak and his speech completely goes and he becomes completely disoriented), which warranted more scans and revealed the stroke had “evolved” (gotten bigger). David also had some sodium issues that kept him in the  ICU  longer then expected.  His sodium issues are now under control.

Thankfully, David is finally out of ICU and into a regular room.  Speech therapy is working with him, along with physical and occupational therapy. His head pain is still a daily struggle but learning to manage it and not overdo it and stress. David still has a long road of recovery. The doctors are thinking it will take a full year for him to recover fully from his stroke and all that he has been through. David is not sure when he will be able to return back to work.  He does have disability insurance, but it only pays for a certain percentage of his income. 

David is married to his wonderful wife Anabel and has 4 beautiful daughters. His family has been right by David's side throughout the ordeal. David is also a worship leader at his church , he coaches his daughters softball team and volunteers as a board member for South Plains girls fastpitch softball.  David works at Virginia College doing what he loves. He helps students find careers and a stable financial future. David loves God, his family and friends. He is always willing to do whatever he can to help them. Because David is always doing for others, we want to help him in his time of need!

Unfortunately, David will be out of work for an unknown period of time.  He has a family to take care of, bills to pay, and we do not want him to stress. We want him to focus on his recovery and family with no added stress. Please pray for strength and healing for David and donate what you can. God Bless!!!
