The Story

Erik Rodriguez, 23 years old is fighting for his life since Tuesday November 8, 2016. Erik and his mom Alejandra Rodriguez went to Central Washington Hospital ER because Erik was complaining of chest pains. After being there overnight doctors said that they had to fly him  to UW Medical Center in Seattle. His mother, father, brother and sister drove and met Erik and doctors there. Doctors said he was really sick and in critical conditions. He has been diagnosed with heart disease. His heart was so inlarged and beating over 180 beats per min. The doctors in ICU decided to use an ECMO a circuit/machine outside his body that's working as his heart and lungs. On Monday November 14, 2016 Erik is going under a procedure called Ventricular Tachycardia Amblation, it's a procedure used to selectively ablate areas of his heart that are causing heart rhythm problems. Erik is a humble, unselfish, kind human being. Everyone he meets falls in love with him. He is always looking out for his family and friends. Any donation will be appreciated to help Erik and his family with his expenses. Thank you in advance from his family and friends. God bless you all and let's keep praying for Eriks recovery.

Hello friends and family I am please to let you know that Erik is doing very well I just spoke with Alejandra and his mom and she says that Erik is eating well that he actually asked for Kentucky fried chicken today and doctors are letting him eat whatever he wants . Also they let them know that his infection that he had while having his artificial heart is gone so he no longer has  any infections in his body.  They sat him up yesterday and they sat him up today and they're thinking of having him walk today. Thank you to all that have shown love and support through these tough times thank God for all that he does these are true miracles
