PLEASE HELP ME SHARE!
Hi my name is Angel Rodriguez, let me start off by telling you my story. On May 13, 2017 one day before Mother’s day, I got into a motorcycle accident. The doctors called my parents and gave them the news that I was in critical condition. I had a grade 5 liver laceration, hemorrhage, brain damage that caused me partial blindness on both eyes, a fractured clavicle and fibula. Upon arrival to the hospital, doctors were able to successfully sew my liver back, and I was also given a life saving blood transfusion. After the surgery I was put on a ventilator because one of my lungs had collapsed. Due to the operation, I wasn’t able to eat or drink anything or even be able to help myself to use the bathroom. I had to wait for my body to slowly recover. I spent so many days in the hospital that I didn’t even remember what home was, but fortunately I had family members that helped me through my traumatizing ordeal.

I was able to make a partial recovery and continued to live my second chance at life. I was lucky the accident had not killed me, but unfortunately the surgery that had saved my life threatened to take it away.

Fast forwarding to May 2018, I began to feel an excruciating pain in my abdomen and was taken once again to the emergency room. What I thought was food poisoning turned out to be a small bowel obstruction which meant that my intestines were blocked. No food or liquids were able to be digested, and therefore nothing was able to be properly flushed out of my body. Anything I ate or drank was vomited right out. Bile was accumulating in my body, intoxicar me with waste. And so, I underwent another surgery to rectify the obstruction. The obstruction was caused by adhesions that twisted my intestines as a result of the abdominal surgery I previously had. In addition, a hematoma was found in my liver that aggravated the obstruction and which was later infected. I now carry a drain that is connected to my liver with me everywhere because of this.
I’ve been in and out of the hospital ever since the accident because of the many complications that arise without warning. My constant visits to the emergency room have rendered me unable to go back to work and I am in constant fear that one day I may not be so lucky to go back home after the hospital. I pray and hope for the day that my maladies will be rid of and that I can continue to enjoy the life I have left to enjoy. Although my immediate family has helped me all they can, there is only so much they can do. My time in the hospital has drained whatever I had saved that went towards paying bills and buying the basic necessities to survive such as food and a roof to live under. Any help is appreciated no matter how small your contribution is, I will Be forever grateful.
Thank you and God bless !

Hola, mi nombre es Angel Rodriguez, déjame comenzar contándote mi historia.
El 13 de mayo de 2017, un día antes del día de la madre, tuve un accidente de motocicleta. Los médicos llamaron a mis padres y les dieron la noticia de que estaba en estado crítico. Tuve una laceración hepática de grado 5, hemorragia, daño cerebral que me causó ceguera parcial en ambos ojos, fractura de clavícula y peroné. Al llegar al hospital, los médicos pudieron coser mi hígado con éxito y también me dieron una transfusión de sangre que me salvó la vida. Después de la cirugía, me pusieron un ventilador porque uno de mis pulmones se había colapsado. Debido a la operación, no pude comer ni beber nada, ni siquiera pude ayudarme a usar el baño. Tuve que esperar a que mi cuerpo se recuperara lentamente. Pasé tantos días en el hospital que ni siquiera recordaba qué casa era, pero afortunadamente tuve familiares que me ayudaron a superar mi traumática experiencia.

Pude recuperarme parcialmente y continué viviendo mi segunda oportunidad en la vida. Tuve suerte de que el accidente no me hubiera matado, pero lamentablemente la cirugía que me había salvado la vida amenazaba con llevármela.

Avanzando rápidamente hasta mayo de 2018, comencé a sentir un dolor insoportable en mi abdomen y fui llevado una vez más a la sala de emergencias. Lo que pensé que era una intoxicación alimentaria resultó ser una obstrucción del intestino delgado que significaba que mis intestinos estaban bloqueados. No se pudieron digerir alimentos ni líquidos, y por lo tanto, nada se pudo eliminar de mi cuerpo de manera adecuada. Todo lo que comí o bebí fue vomitado. La bilis se estaba acumulando en mi cuerpo, intoxicarme con el desperdicio. Y entonces, me sometí a otra cirugía para rectificar la obstrucción. La obstrucción fue causada por adherencias que retorcieron mis intestinos como resultado de la cirugía abdominal que tuve anteriormente. Además, se encontró un hematoma en mi hígado que agravó la obstrucción y que luego se infectó. Ahora llevo un drenaje que está conectado a mi hígado conmigo en todas partes debido a esto. He estado dentro y fuera del hospital desde el accidente debido a las muchas complicaciones que surgen sin previo aviso. Mis visitas constantes a la sala de emergencias me han impedido volver al trabajo y tengo un temor constante de que algún día no tenga la suerte de volver a casa después del hospital. Rezo y espero el día en que mis enfermedades desaparezcan y pueda seguir disfrutando de la vida que me queda para disfrutar. Aunque mi familia inmediata me ha ayudado todo lo que pueden, no hay mucho que puedan hacer. Mi tiempo en el hospital ha agotado todo lo que ahorré para pagar las facturas y comprar las necesidades básicas para sobrevivir, como alimentos y un techo donde vivir. Se agradece cualquier ayuda, no importa cuán pequeña sea tu contribución, estaré eternamente agradecido.
Gracias y Dios te bendiga !
