Salvador Cabanas: The Miracle

The sports world appears to be surprised when Dr. Ernesto Martinez [the neurosurgeon who operated on Salvador Cabanas] announced that his patient was recovering. At the same time, he also warned against any premature speculation of Cabanas playing again.

Salvador Cabanas has been reported to be conversing with family, friends, and fellow Club America [as well as Paraguayan] teammates about playing in the World Cup. It appears that he is able to sit without any complications and is able to eat and drink.

At the present time, there has been no new reports of hemorrhage, edema [accumuation of liquid in injured areas of a body], and infection. The bullet still remains lodged in the occipital lobe and does not appear to go anywhere [according to Dr. Martinez].

Dr. Martinez added that the bullet «will remain in the occipital lobe whether he plays again or not». The declaration of the neurosurgeon defies the odds of a victim of a lesion in the occipital lobe which is 5%.

Whatever happens to Cabanas, it appears to be nothing short of a miracle. It cannot be denied that Cabanas decided forhimself that he would defy the medical odds and choose life and the right to live.


Salvador Cabanas deserves a medal for that desire and courage in the face of adversity.
