Matthew is 35 years old and had a stroke on Monday May 7th 2018. He had a procedure to remove blood clots from his brain. He seemed to be improving but then his brain started swelling on Tuesday. Tuesday evening they removed part of his skull to give his brain room to swell. The next 72 hours are critical as his brain swells and hopefully starts going down. It is unknown what kind of deficits he may face in the future but for now prayers are requested for recovery for Matt.
