"the neurologists were sure they had made a correct diagnosis and could not believe my father's recuperation"
August 10, 2003
Thank you very much for the rose petals which I have begun passing over my small child, Cesar, while I pray the Rosary. (The child has a renal problem and is about 6 yrs old.)
The day after receiving them my mother called me at 8:30 a.m. to tell me that my father's health was delicate. We took him to the hospital and were told that he had an emboly, that it might be stabilized or that he could lose the movement of the right side (of his body), which was already notably debilitated. I took the blessed rose petals and my mother and I started to pray while she passed a petal over him on one side and I on the other. At 1 p.m. the Internist told us that the neurologists had given a wrong diagnosis, that his brain was intact and that he had only had a transitory vascular cerebral spasm which could be cured with medication and complete rest. In spite of being told this news, the neurologists were sure they had made a correct diagnosis and could not believe my father's recuperation. Yesterday we brought him home in fine health and he is resting.
I wish to send these lines not sure that it is a testimony.
On August 15th. we will take our son, Cesar, to a doctor in Ciudad Tijuana. I hope he will give me better alternatives than the doctors in my town.
