This is for you baby Ricky

As most of you all know Ricardo Vela Jr. "Baby Ricky" was involved in a tragic accident on saturday night. Something none of us will ever be able to explain, and with respect to the parents I will not be telling the story that way. Saturday night around 9pm is when we were trying to get this little bundle of joy to be airlifted to University Hospital  of San Antonio but due to bad weather in SA it did not premit us to do so. After waiting for the correct ambulance we were finally able to leave mcallen @ 2am. What is normally 3hr drive from the valley became almost a 4 1/2 hour drive. It was horrible. I cant explain how devasted my family is with this. Baby Ricky has been in ICU since Sunday night where he turned 2yrs old. Baby Ricky will undergo surgery Thursday and with the faith in GOD should be home Monday. Our family is asking that if you could help with any type of donation we Thank You, and if you cant we ask that you continue to pray for a speedy recovery and that GOD is with these doctors and Baby Ricky at all times. Again in advance THANK YOU and God Bless You!
