Since his surgery he has seen 3 different doctors seeking opinions and exploring the possibility of regaining his vision. However, the severity of the damage was quite extensive, it has resulted in the loss of vision in the damaged eye. The only option is enucleation (the removal of the eye) after which time he will be evaluated and fitted for a prosthetic eye.
He's home now and is resting when he can in between doctor appointments and tests. Not being able to work, his bills and medical expenses have began and will continue to grow.
He has come to terms with and has accepted the reality of living with one eye. The overwhelming amount of love and support we have received from family and friends near and far is beyond what we could have ever imagined. My family and I are eternally grateful and thank you all so very much.
We are generally private when it comes to personal matters such as this but in the same breath have come to the realization of the road to recovery that lies ahead not only physically and emotionally but financially as well.
We are doing our best to support my brother Kike both emotionally and financially but unfortunately we are having a difficult time as well. It is for this reason, we humbly ask for your support in any form whether monetary or an extra prayer so that he may continue the road to recovery.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, support, love and prayers.
