I have set up a caring bridge for Chris so I am able to post all updates here,instead of texting,Facebook and calling everyone separately.Chris had gone in for a routine tumor removal on Tuesday for what was suppose to be an easy surgery with minimal or no complications.the surgeons at the Elliot hospital in NH were able to remove 60 percent of the tumor at that time.when Chris woke up from anesthesia he had lost sight in both eyes.the surgeons immediately took him back down to the operating room and went back in to see if there was something pinching the optic nerves or find any answers why he had no vision at all.they were unsuccessful.they transferred Chris to Beth Israel deaconess medical center in Boston to the neurosurgeon team to do a craniotomy to A-find out what is causing the loss of vision and B-remove the remainder of the tumor.chris had the third surgery done Thursday about 8pm the surgeon was able to remove the rest of the tumor.he was also able to locate both optic nerves that Elliot hospital thought they cut and removed on accident. the left optic nerve was entangled he was able to free it up and it was in ok shape the right one was severed and in bad shape.chris spent Friday in and out of consciousness he has not been able to see anything as of yet but we are still holding on to hope for a little sight in the right eye (left nerve controls the right eye) I will post another update as soon as I have one.i want to thank everyone for everything the have done and continue to do for Chris and our family
