On Wednesday December 2 Chuck underwent successful lumbar spine surgery. He was in great spirits post-surgery while he visited with Diane and spoke to his children and grandchildren on the phone. Unfortunately, a little over 24 hours later Chuck's neurological signs shifted and a CT scan showed bleeding in his brain. Following emergency surgery to remove the blood clot, Chuck spent 19 days in the neurological ICU at Duke University Hospital and 7 days in the Neuro step down unit battling back from the hemorrhagic stroke before graduating to an acute rehab facility in Little River, SC. After spending 4 weeks there, Chuck is now finally back at home. Chuck and Diane are blessed to have family and friends eager to offer support and love. We have created this CaringBridge website to keep everyone updated in one place and we invite you to please check here for updates and for any help that Diane and Chuck may need. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement here on this site as Chuck heals and Diane provides his care. We send much love and gratitude from Diane, Carly, Chad, Christine, Avery and Trevor.
