Rick had an aneurysm burst in his brain on Tuesday morning, January 16. He underwent emergency surgery to install 2 catheters in his brain. After the surgery, Rick suffered cardiac arrest. He had a second emergency surgery late Tuesday evening to relieve pressure on his brain. The surgery was a success. On Wednesday and Thursday, the doctors continued to work to try and drain all the blood from Rick’s brain. There are 3 catheters in his brain right now. Rick’s heart has stabilized after his (Code blue) cardiac arrest on Tuesday afternoon. Rick’s neurosurgeon told me that 90% of people in that same condition would have passed away. Rick is in extremely critical condition but he is a fighter. Your prayers are really helping.
