earlier this week, i sent out an email to just a few people about aldo. after visits and advice from friends - a prosthetic doctor and physical therapist - it was clear that aldo needs several surgeries in order to get serious about rehabbing and adjusting to life with one leg and one arm.
but after constant attempts through the public hospital to get help, it was clear that aldo was getting ignored. with time working against us, we finally made the decision to go the private medicine route.
within a couple hours of sending out my email, the funding for all 3 necessary surgeries was fully covered! within days, we were able to get aldo in for the surgeries on his good foot (which was turning outward) and his good elbow (which has had bone exposed ever since the accident in may).
aldo is recuperating and will soon go in for surgery on his hand. as he recovers from these surgeries, he will be able to begin rehabbing more seriously and get to work at becoming an independent young man again!
