Then I no longer remember why they changed the date again. It was going to be next March 30, one day before my son’s birthday. But yesterday -Tuesday- one of the traumatologists called me to tell me that the team is there, the operating room is there, but the supplies for the operation are missing. I mean, we’re going to keep going around. I’m going to Neuquén next Monday, and I’m asking that the operation be done in the same way, whatever it may be, with a collection to raise the money, I don’t know. But my son can’t wait any longer“, the woman said.

Hilda knows that supplies are expensive, but she doesn’t lose hope. “The doctors who are going to operate on him are both very good, but if they don’t have the conditions to work, they can’t do much either.. Unfortunately it is so, here -in Las Lajas- the same thing happens. A lot of things are missing that are not being delivered,” the woman said.

Concern is growing because, according to the mother, “his chest is compressing his lungs”. To be more graphic, she noticed that her navel is no longer seen as hunched over as her body is. In addition, she said that she regularly takes her heart rate and note they are low.
