Prayers for my Brother In Law

Postby Marauder 1 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 10:55 pm

My wives older brother is going in tomorrow for a test procedure to relieve fluid that is pressing on his brain. It's a condition called AANS. We believe the condition he now suffers from was caused from a serious fall 20 years ago. Ed has been loosing motor functions in his legs and has become quite forgetful. The docs didn't know what was wrong with him for the longest time. I stumbled across the AANS site and the symptoms were identical.

Tomorrow they will remove a large quantity of cerebral fluid to see if the reduced pressure causes an improvement, if it does he'll go in and have a shunt tube installed to fix the issue. Please pray all goes well.

Thanks
Mark

I want to thank you guys for the prayers for Ed, the procedure went well. Now it's going to be 2 weeks of evaluation for him to see just how much will come back. Then it will be time to go in and insert a shunt to keep the fluid pressures under control.

Thanks again
