Hurray! A Prosthesis for Eduardo!
Posted by Cruz on March 28, 2016, 7:37 pm
Hola, Hola. Don't know the correct word usage for prosthesis but Eduardo received his 'prosthetic' leg/foot today at Shriners Children's Hospital in the City of Mexico. His Mom and Heidi, who accompanied them, were absolutely ecstatic and joyous. When they called me with the great news, Heidi and Eduardo were playing kickball. They told me that Eduardo's first reaction was to say, "Soy grande", (I am big). When they took 'it' off Eduardo would say he was small (chico).
We are so, so happy as just this first important step has been over two years in the making. A big thank you to Myranda and Michael. They started this effort and they are finally going to see the fruits of their labor and music to raise funds so that this and more could happen for Eduardo. And much appreciation to all who have contributed and who have been so supportive of this family.
One more accomplishment by our community.
Again, VIVA LA MANZANILLA! Cruz
