Days after senselessly being shot in the back by a coward, David Ortiz is still recovering from his wounds.
While he gets his rest to get back to 100%, his wife, Tiffany Ortiz, took some time to release a statement that wanted to point to the unbelievable job that doctors did in order to save her husband’s life in her latest statement about his health.
“To the amazing surgeons, medical team, and staff at the Abel Gonzalez Clinic in the Dominican Republic, there are no words to express our gratitude for the amazing care you provided,” she said. “Without you, our story could have had a tragic ending. You will forever be our guardian angels.”
Ortiz endured a 6-hour surgery at a Dominican Republic hospital, and then he would flown to Boston for a second surgery as courtesy of the Red Sox.
He still has a long road to recovery, but at least Big Papi still is alive and breathing, and he has multiple doctors to thank for that.
