Help Patricio recover from c3, c4 and c5 spinal surgery after horrific bike crash

Update posted by Isabela Escobar On Oct 16, 2019

Hi everyone, Isabela speaking, Pato's youngest sister.

Patricio underwent surgery yesterday for his spinal cord and vertebrae. As of now, results are inconclusive, but his neurosurgeons said that they felt that procedure went well and without complications. The fact that he survived the surgery is already a HUGE VICTORY.

Now it all depends on how his rehabilitation and healing progresses. Its a delicate subject, and I can't make any definitive statements, but, I can tell you one thing for sure: If this had happened to someone else, a different forty-one-year-old without Patricio's physical training and endurance, their chances of full recovery would have been a lot LOT LOT lower. He is in top physical condition, a true example of athletic prowess and fitness, and that affects his healing abilities positively. He also has one of the most resilient spirits I've ever known in a human being.

That being said, post-op is the most fragile of times for any patient. There are many things that could go wrong, or cause complications, so we have to remain vigilant. Pato is still hospitalized, he is still in the ICU, and he still needs 24 hour care. His Wife, children and our mother and sister are there at his beside, offering their undivided attention. Now all we can do is wait.

It should be known that once Patricio pulls through this, Cause he WILL, he and his family still have a long, difficult journey ahead of them. A injury of this nature could take years to fully heal. We still need as much help as we can get, as much prayers and positive energy as we can muster, and as much hope and togetherness from the community as humanly possible.

Keep him in your thoughts, and in your prayers. Edge him on, tell him "Go Pato! Go!". Even if you can't donate, help spread his story. And dont forget to tell everyone to say #FuerzaPatricio

Much Love, Isabela.

Hola a todos, les habla Isabela , la hermana menor de Pato.

Patricio fue operado ayer de sus vértebras y médula espinal .A partir de ahora, los resultados no son conclusos, pero sus neurocirujanos dijeron que sentían que el procedimiento salió bien y sin complicaciones.

El hecho de que haya sobrevivido a la cirugía ya es una VICTORIA ENORME.

Ahora todo depende de cómo progresa su rehabilitación y sanacion. Es un tema delicado, y no puedo hacer ninguna declaración definitiva, pero puedo decirles una cosa con certeza: si esto le hubiera sucedido a otra persona, un hombre diferente de cuarenta y un años, sin el entrenamiento físico y la resistencia de Patricio, sus posibilidades de recuperación total habrían sido MUCHO MUCHO menores.

Patricio esta en excelente condición física, un verdadero ejemplo de destreza atlética, y eso afecta sus habilidades de curación positivamente. El también tiene uno de los espíritus más resistentes que he conocido en un ser humano.

Dicho esto, el postoperatorio es el momento más frágil para cualquier paciente. Hay muchas cosas que pueden salir mal o causar complicaciones, por lo que debemos permanecer atentos.

Pato todavía está hospitalizado, todavía está en la UCI y todavía necesita atención las 24 horas. Su esposa, hijos y nuestra madre y hermana están a su lado, ofreciendo toda su atención. Ahora todo lo que podemos hacer es esperar. Debe saberse que una vez que Patricio supere este reto , porque lo hará, él y su familia aún tienen un largo y difícil viaje por delante. Una lesión de esta gravedad podría tardar años en sanar por completo. Todavía necesitamos tanta ayuda como podamos obtener, tantas oraciones y energía positiva como podamos reunir, y tanta esperanza y unión de la comunidad como sea humanamente posible. Mantenganlo en tus pensamientos y en tus oraciones. Alientenlo, diganle "¡Go Pato! ¡Go!". Incluso si no puedes donar, ayuda a difundir su historia. Y no olvides decirles a todos que usen la frase #FuerzaPatricio

Mucho amor, Isabela.
