On February 12th, Grant had an MRI in relation to a concussion he sustained due to a fall at work a few months earlier. The MRI showed that he had a large, unruptured brain aneurysm in his middle cerebral artery. After meeting with a number of doctors, they have all agreed that it must be treated via open surgery (craniotomy).
On April 21st, Grant will have brain surgery at UCSF to “clip” the aneurysm. If everything goes as planned, Grant will be in the hospital for 4-5 days following the procedure. Then, he will be able to return home where he will require a lot of rest and care for several weeks.
Although it’s been tough, Grant has been incredibly strong through this. He hasn’t missed a beat with his positive attitude and wonderful smile. He continues to be an incredible husband and an amazing dad, every second of every day. I truly believe if anyone can do this, and come out better on the other side, he can.
While this kind of news is stressful and scary, we are grateful. Many people with aneurysms do not know until it’s too late. We're determined to focus on the good parts. We have the option to treat this. We have incredible friends, family and community supporting us. We aren’t doing this alone and we thank you for being here.
During the next few weeks, we ask that you pray for Grant to be strong, for the doctors to operate successfully, and for a positive outcome.
Thank you for supporting all of us during this time.
