In just one week, the progress has been impressive. The strength of his body, his will to live, the medical attention and prayers of all, have helped him evolve rapidly, against all odds.
His initial diagnosis was: acute liver failure, acute kidney failure, heart failure with ascending aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection.
They are still investigating the causes that generated such a drastic picture, there are several, in addition to the antecedent of Covid 19 6 weeks ago. There is nothing concrete about it, so it is better to focus on your recovery.
The truth is that, even feeling bad, he was submerged in an avalanche of stress and work, without thinking that he could have some care, until life forces him to take a break.
But his strength has surprised everyone. Another could not tell. The liver and kidney are being regenerated in an impressive way. As soon as you are ready to go to cardiothoracic surgery, all the heart studies will be repeated to see if the injury has progressed or is stable.
