Helping out (Taxi Hank) Castillo

$4,265 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 62 people in 10 months

Hank, the original Utilian Taxi driver has fallen quite ill from an infected boil that has led to gangrene. Doctors say it will be a long process but they are hopeful they can get him back behind the wheel of his little van.

For the last two weeks he has been interned in a public hospital on the mainland. While the hospital room and the doctors consult are free, the family have been required to purchase all medical supplies and medications relevant to his daily care and treatment.

As with most things medical, it is quite costly expense to the family as their main income is temporarily cut. Their hope to raise enough money to be able to transfer him to a better facility in hopes of receiving another opinion and better care. So lets pull together and unite to help them out!

Updating with a heavy heart.

Sadly, Hank passed away this morning in the hospital in San Pedro Sula. Arrangements are being made to transport him back home to Utila to lay him to rest.

The family would like to thank everyone once again for their ongoing support and prayers in these difficult times.

So here's an update of what has been going on...

From my understanding, Hank is in critical condition again. He was moved to a hospital in San Pedro Sula earlier this week and has been receiving dialysis in addition to changing the antibiotics he was getting.

The new meds seemed to make him feel better for a the first couple of days but now today Evelyn (his wife) is getting conflicting advice from different doctors that have been watching over him. One is recommending him being moved to a private hospital and put back into an ICU in hopes that will lessen the stress load on his body and allow him to heal.
The other is recommending against moving him as he states they have done everything they can.

Finances are definitely affecting their decision so we are reaching out to other doctors to get different opinions on their next steps.

The Castillo Family are in need of support and prayers.

Good evening,

I'm saddened to report that Hank was evacuated to La Ceiba back to the hospital yesterday afternoon with a super high fever and body chills. Doctors determined his kidneys weren't functioning properly and have started him on dialysis again. They are also going to be doing an ultrasound on his abdomen to help figure out what exactly is going on.

Hi!!

I'm writing tonight with the best of news. Hank has been released from the hospital and sent home to continue his recovery process which is anticipated to be quite lengthy, but he's HOME! His family is overjoyed to have him back and are extremely grateful for all of your support!

Many Blessings!
