Dr. Levi & Dr. Perez was referred to me from a friend whom had her tubes untied earlier in the year whom now is expecting in Feb. 2009. Congrats Sandra”
This is my story’ I am 31 years old and married to my 2nd husband whom has raised my 3 kids from a previous marriage for 10 years. My husband age 27 has no children and was diagnosis with testicular cancer back in September. We both wanted to have a baby together but thought we had plenty of time, my husband’s mass has been removed and by the grace of God he can still have children. So I spoke to my friend about where she had her surgery done and sure enough we got scheduled. We were blessed to be able to come up with the money within a couple of months. Because of my husband’s medical status he was not able to fly so my mother went with me.
My mother and I flew in from Dallas to McAllen on November 21st 2008, It was beautiful there' Never been out of the state much less the country, you hear so much bad stuff happening over the border; however we were blessed to have Dr. Levi’s wife driving the SUV. It’s not every day you get into a shuttle with not knowing who the driver is, but she being a women and very good to us, She made us both feel safe. My mom speaks fluent Spanish so they hit it off right away; I speak Spanish but very insecure about speaking it. But we all communicated great” It was late Friday when we got to Mexico and, because there were many surgeries going on that weekend, the hospital was full, so Dr. Levi’s wife kindly took us to a Hotel and helped us check in. The rooms were nice and clean, and we had gotten plenty of sleep. We got up and loaded back into the SUV the next morning.
As we got to the hospital, Dr. Levi came out and greeted us. I was
happy to see him. He took us to my respective room, an then lab tech
came take my blood, and shortly after a nurse came in to start my
iv. Both the lab tech and nurse were great, only one stick and
I didn’t feel a thing. "Excelente" They had a couple of
surgeries ahead of me, so I just got to lie in the bed and watch
Spanish videos. The nurse came in put me in a wheelchair and
took me to surgery. I was not sure where I was going but found out
real fast when I saw Dr. Perez in his scrubs. I tried to ask the
nurse about my mom, but she did not understand. I was getting a
little worried until Dr. Perez walked in and assured me he would get
her in just a few minutes and at that time I told him she didn’t
have to come with me. I laid down on the table and the
anesthesiologist started administering the medication through the
IV, and before I was totally out he had me turn on my side into a
fetal position for the epidural and as I was falling asleep I told
Dr. Levi, Please make this happen for me and my husband. ”with tears
in my eyes I fell asleep. They put the catheter in after. so I never
felt anything. Each time I woke up I spoke to Dr. Levi and Dr. Perez
and each time they would just give me a little more medicine in the
IV and I would go right back to sleep, I think I was talking too
much for them” hehehe. They had music on in the
operating room. And once I had to tell one of the doctors they were
jabbing me in the rib, and to get their elbow off. And that time I
just remember a masked Doctor looking over at me and smiled and
said” oops’ Sorry” LOL
They left the epidural in until the next morning around 8am, and I was glad, it kept me comfortable all night. I was able to get up and take a shower, which was great. We left about 10:00 am the next day, Dr. Levi’s wife treated us to some homemade tacos from around the corner” The best taco’s I’ve ever had. Gracias' Mrs. Levi.. don’t have any regrets on my surgery; I got home safely and have healed very well, with almost no scaring. It has been almost 2mths and we are ready to start on our new addition to our family. We love you Dr. Levi and Dr. Perez” God Bless You and your family in all you do! I’ll keep you all updated.
Thank You So Much!
