On Tuesday morning, November 22, near as we can tell, Rob walked downstairs , set his phone on the window seat and probably started a coughing fit due to a chest cold he was battling. In any case, he had a spontaneous rupture of a carotid aneurism that we had no idea that he had. He fell forward and hit the edge of the wall fracturing his temporal bone and many facial bones. The trauma pushed the bone back nicking the front of the carotid artery. Thanks to a conservative neurologist, who didn't like the amount of blood that he saw on the CT scan, he was life flighted to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital which has a highly specialized neuro radiation intervention unit. That night the surgeon repaired both sides of the artery (discovering the initial aneurism) He was very pleased and said that it couldn't have gone any better and felt that Rob should return to as he was before this happened.. so that is what we are working toward. We covet your prayers!
