Our friend Max Hernandez was riding on top of his horse at a festival where he lost control and fell off striking his head on the ground. The impact as described by the doctors was as if he were to take a sledge-hammer blow to the head. He went through surgery for the removal of excess blood between his skull and brain. His treatment requires his skull to stay open for at least 2 months to allow drainage and swelling to go down. He had been asleep for the past couple days under sedation, and when the doctors try to wake him up, he freaked out due to the artificial ventilator strapped down his throat. He has only been able to move part of his body.
As he recovers, I ask that we keep his family in our prayers and a small donation for medical fees to help them recover through this personal and financial stressful moment. Max was in the process of obtaining health insurance, but unfortunately, this incident occurred while uninsured.
As everyone else understands that hospital prices can be quiet expensive now a days, I would like to ask to please take the time and think to help raise some funding to support a portion of the medical bills. The family will need the funds after discharge if all goes well.
