Things marked in red need fixed. Hints are given in purple.
You've mixed preterit and imperfect tenses in your narrative. Switching one of them will fix the problem.

Good job.
I marked 'tuve' as needing to be changed because its tense doesn't agree with the tense of the verbs used in the sentence previous to it. That sentence is a narrative (letting us know how you were feeling or how you were fairing), so I would expect the next sentence to continue in like fashion.
