Rick's Road to Recovery

$25,780 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 458 people in 19 months
My name is Dyanna uribe-de sousa and my father is Rick Uribe. This past weekend my parents were spending the weekend doing what they love listening to country music at Route 91 in Las Vegas. Unfortunately a mass shooting broke out and my dad was shot twice in the stomach on the right and left side. He is stable and not critical at this point . He is currently at Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas . After surgery this morning the doctors had to remove a piece of his intestine and his colon . He is currently on a breathing machine to help stabilize his body but will hopefully be removed in the next 24 hrs and will start his long road to recovery . He will not be able to work at this time due to the severity of his injuries and due to the distance he probably won't be able to travel back home which means my mom will have to be stationed out in Vegas for the time being . I am hoping to raise some money to make sure their bills are covered for the next two months (house, car, and potential future medical expenses) so the only worry my parents will have is recovering physically and mentally from this tragic incident . Whatever donations can be made please make some . And please pray for our family through this difficult time

Good morning family and friends ! Past few days have been a bit tougher on my dad. He was finally able to drink some water and have some ice but the adjustment from the surgery and colostomy was a bit uncomfortable. It took a small toll on my dad and he spent most of yesterday resting. However , today he was back at it and walking to his favorite song as you will see in the video . Your continued prayers and support has truly helped our family through all of this. Each day your kind words give my dad and our family the strength we need to keep pushing . We are so thankful and can never say it enough, thank you. God bless! and prayers to all the families and friends affected We will make it through this and come back stronger #vegasstrong

Hello family and friends ! My name is Dyanna Uribe- De Sousa, for those that don't know me, I am Rick Uribe's daughter and the person who has been running this GoFundMe account. Wow what an amazing response ! I was speaking with my parents and they are just so grateful and overwhelmed with emotion over all the lovely words and donations. They are so thankful and blessed by everyone's prayers and generosity. Update time :)! Today my dad was walking a little bit, and although his steps were small in size overall this is a huge step in the right direction for his recovery. He still has a long road ahead of him and another surgery in the future , but we are happy to see my dad in such strong spirits. As he becomes a bit more active the doctors will be able to better assess a good time frame for his release, and then begins the hardest part of his recovery from home! At this time I have created a bank account that's names me as the main account holder and my dad an authorized user. My parents asked that I help assist them in paying their bills back home in California and prepare their house for my dads return so that it better accommodate his injury . The money donated will be released to this account and as my parents become more settled and rested they will eventually take over this account . I feel like I can never truly express my gratitude to everyones response . Your donations , prayers, kind words,and shares have truly touched our hearts and given us a light through this dark time. I can never say it enough but thank you, thank you, thank you ! You have blessed my parents so much and I am forever grateful ! God bless everyone and continued prayers for my dads recovery ❤️
Can't keep him down :)
