Spanish term or phrase: al cuerde
Hi,

I am transcribing an interview with a Honduran woman. She is describing an episode in which she fell sick and was taken to the hospital for a few days.

...yo solo se que el me fue a botar al hospital, afuera, para que me recogieran, y ahi no supe nada, cuando al cuerde desperte el... el... fue un 28 - verdad? - Cuando yo desperte yo solo se que fue un... un 5 de enero...

I understand what she is saying, but I had never heard "al cuerde" before. I would like to make sure that this is what she is saying.

Thanks in advance!
