Please help Matt aka Matteo from Pavones !

He was injured in a moto crash on his quad 3 days ago, took stiches in his head, and broke his hand badly. 

He was transferred to San Isidro hospital for orthopaedic specialist to do surgery on compound fracture that may need pin and plate.

The wrist has not been taken care of yet.  It has been three days and he still hasn't had his bones set. Gail said that they told her it will still be a couple days before the doctor arrives...

I have heard horror stories about this hospital, and people having to wait weeks to be seen by a doctor.

PLEASE HELP MATTEO!

Donate so that his hand can be operated on and he can start healing!!

If you or anyone you know or love lives in a remote location with limited health resources and funding, please have a heart and give!

XO
Pavones

Hospital bills are piling up, and no surgery yet. Infection in wrist delays surgery until Tuesday at best, 12 days after accident. Costs may mount to $12000 even in Perez Zeledon by the time treatment is over. The journey to heal hasn't even started, surgery cost, rehab, scars, totally broken quad, and major loss of work is all mounting. Mattie keeps his chin up. Step by step. Giving thanks for what IS and not not focussing on what is NOT. He wrote "Infection iz going down fast........Sunday or Monday surgery PLEASE
Home by next Friday ....with sum luck
Thank you EVERYONE 4 EVERYTHING.
Wagner blood clot fell apart....come home soon bro
Miss Ya'll
ANY SURF ? — feeling thankful."

Jan 6 - Update from Amy:

No surgery today. But Matteo does think it will be tomorrow (wednesay). He likes the orthopedic doctor so far, but if no surgery by Thursday then plan B could be go to Mae Lewis clinic in Panama...or a private clinic in San Isidro Clinica Labradora...or San Jose Clínica Biblica.

Thank you all for making plan B a possibility to consider!!!

Matteo appreciates and misses you all!!! Your concern brings him to tears and makes him feel wayyy better.

I spent over a week with a shattered elbow there. golfito for cast then they took me to 2 other facilities ,same thing no orto surgeon,back to golfito that nite , and then san isidro for a couple days ... A family there strongly urged I go to a clinic in San Jose. This family took responsibility for me and signed me out so I could seek med care in San Jose..I returned home to Pavones via bus thinking I was gonna die because they kept trying to keep sedated ,BP wa 160/120 ,they told me I had high blood pressure . I kept trying to refuse pain meds and shots but wouldn't allow it. My son had to return 2 days later to San Jose so i drove with one arm ,a standard shift all the way to San Jose , dropped Lance off at the airport and went and admitted myself.The care I rec'd in san jose ,actuallyEsposito, was like nothing I ever had. Far better than the care I would have rec'd in the states. Cost $5,000. of which I borrowed at the time . They removed radial head of elbow and other pieces... Matteo should try to get out of there.
