“Since he was admitted to hospital in August, we have taken care of multidisciplinary medical care to improve the health of Mr. Vicente Fernández. His family has been by his side in this disease process since his hospital admission, which has limited his quality of life and is now continually dependent on specialized health care.
Due to the type of disease and sequelae presented so far, it has kept him in a stationary state, with a slow progression, which is why he does not show significant changes in his state of health.
He is currently stable, awake, conscious with interaction with his family at the time of his visit.
Very dependent on ventilation through tracheostomy, his respiratory effort is still weak, this generated by the same disease that affected his peripheral nerves ”
On the other hand, his son, Alejandro Fernández, sent all his strength and love to his father at this difficult time.
“Always in my thoughts and my prayers, give it a try boss, we all miss you, you don’t know how glad I was to see this photo !!! @_vicentefdez I love you and much encouragement, you are doing very well!
