His walk is slow, he is helped by a walker because his legs have not yet returned to their previous strength. He breathes supported by an oxygen concentrator and lost a lot of weight. All have been the consequences of a battle from which he emerged victorious, beat covid-19, and as he says, won the hardest game of his life. He is the doctor José Rodríguez Uribe, who is as passionate about his profession as he is about football, but even more so about his beloved Pumas de la UNAM.
Dr. Pepe, as he is known on social networks, became popular after her daughter Gabriela posted on Twitter that after 15 days in the hospital she finally woke up and the first thing she asked was: “How were the Pumas?” The university club responded to this message with a video of support from the staff, in addition, sent home an autographed shirt and team history book.
“I had the great fortune that my second family took care of me, first in the Nicolás San Juan Hospital, then in the ISSEMyM where I was treated very well by the resident emergency physicians, the assigned ones, the therapy doctors, thanks to them, thank God and my wife Leticia and my daughters Gaby and Leticia we are here”Said the doctor who has been convalescing at home for two weeks, gaining more and more voice power and improving physical strength.
Graduated from the Faculty of Medicine of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and with more than 30 years of service in the Social Security Institute of the State of Mexico and Municipalities (ISSEMyM) and the Nicolás San Juan Hospital in the city of Toluca , Doctor Pepe is a faithful follower of the Pumas, admirer of emblematic players such as Enrique Borja, Aarón Padilla, Evanivaldo Castro Cabinho, Miguel Mejía Barón and Mario Velarde, among othersTherefore, once he went through the most complicated of his coronavirus treatment, his family and friends encouraged him with truncheons for the auriazul team.
“There were many days of anguish, despair, but we had a lot of faith in God, many people prayed for him, had the support of his medical colleagues, did well and after several days without seeing him, when I saw him for the first time on a video call I yelled at him: ‘Up with the Pumas!‘To cheer him up, he couldn’t speak yet and he just smiled at me, ”recalls his wife Leticia Martínez.
It was a second win
Fighting for life is common for doctor José Rodríguez Uribe, not only by profession, but by destination. “The most difficult game was that one, but thank God we won”.
He said it is the second game to beat death, because in 1985 he did it with other lives, he rescued people from the rubble of the Juarez Hospital in Mexico City after the earthquake.
“I would say that it is the second important game that I win. In the earthquake of 85 I was a volunteer, we help people who were in the rubble. He listened like a kitten, a very small moan, we didn’t see anything, but the next day one of the doctors found a baby for almost a year and he told me: look here is the kitten you were listening to, you told us that there was something else and here it is, it is a boy ”, he recalled.
