Pediatricians Family Asking for Blood Donations

The family of Dr. Cecilio Eck is asking the public’s assistance in donating O positive type blood after he underwent surgery. Last week, Dr Eck was taken off a ventilator when his fight with COVID improved, but he had to undergo surgery on Sunday. His colleague, Dr. Fernando Cuellar gave News Five an update on his condition today.

“Unfortunately Dr. Eck suffered a big setback yesterday, where we suspected he was bleeding inside. It was confirmed through tests and CT scan and yesterday, Sunday, until this morning when we checked again, we could no longer be conservative and we decided to do an operation. So, he’s just finished the operation and he’s stable, but clearly this is considered a big setback in his recovery, noh.”

“Okay, and can you say what the prognosis is?”

 

Dr. Fernando Cuellar

“Well, the prognosis is uncertain, with all he has gone through and to have a major surgery, one would think it’s nothing encouraging, noh.”
