Welcome to our CaringBridge website.
For over a year Henry has been suffering from sudden headaches, dizziness, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, lack of coordination, and mental fog. With much persistence from Fred and I we finally reached a provider who was willing to listen and pursue further imaging.
On September 13th Henry was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation. Due to the severity and progression the only option is surgery for relief of his symptoms and prevention of further spinal cord damage.
He will have neurosurgery on September 29th which will essentially enlarge the lower part of his skull to house his cerebellum adequately. We always knew he had “big brains”! We have been overwhelmed with support but are struggling to navigate messages and calls in a timely fashion. We hope to use this site to provide updates to our friends and loved ones. We appreciate your continued support and words of hope and encouragement for Henry. If you would like to leave messages we will share with Henry as he embarks on this journey.
