One of the people in our elderly program is in serious trouble. Manuel.
He is the 64 year old man who is mute.
His niece takes care of him....She is the only family that he has....apart from his older brother who is wheel chair bound.
He is in an incredibly sweet man who always has a huge smile on his face .
He had a prostrate operation in January . It appeared that all was well. He seemed to be doing fine.
But we have found that they stripped the prostrate and did not remove it.
Please remember I am not a medical person and this is just the information that I have been told.
Then recently the prostate became inflamed. It has now affected his bladder. His bladder has become swollen and he is not able to urinate.
He has been taken to the hospital but they cannot do anything for him there. He needs another hospital that has a specialist.
A private hospital has offerered to give us a discount after the local doctor we work with has asked for their help.
They want $1,200 US for the operation and it needs to be done immediately.
His bladder is swelling . He cannot urinate. He has been straining and only urinates blood.
The doctors have told us that if we do not operate he will die a very painful death.
We don;t have the money to pay for his operation..........everyone in the office is very upset about his condition...his niece is sitting outside crying.
If you can help us with just a little, it will make a big difference.
There is a lot of pressure for us to agree to this operation immediately but without any funds ....it is a very difficult position.
Please help Manuel if you can.
