Robert Prater's Medical Expenses

Donation protected
My brother, Robert Prater, suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm on Sunday, July 24th. Bubba, as he is known by his family, is 34 yrs old and married to Ashley Prater of Watertown, TN.

Bubba has never been sick in his life! He is very strong and vibrant! He currently works for Fessler Home Improvement and looks like the poster child for the perfect picture of health.

While visiting our sister's house to hang out with family and to work on his niece and nephew's play house, he suddenly was unable to control his arms and legs while suffering from a massive headache where he heard a pop in his head. He immediately fell to the floor. His wife and sisters rushed him to the hospital.

His symptoms quickly pointed to an aneurysm and were confirmed by CTA. The next day Bubba underwent neurosurgery for endovascular coiling, but the aneurysm opening was too large. The surgery would have been ineffective. The following day, the neurosurgeon performed a surgical aneurysm clipping which requires an craniotomy (removing part of his skull and working directly on his brain). The surgery was a great success! Thank you, GOD!

The surgeon told Bubba that the aneurysm was significant and he was "lucky" to be alive.

Now, Bubba's next hurdle is getting past days 6 thru 10 without vasospasms causing a stroke. As I write this, we are on day 5. The neurosurgeon said that vasospasms (the body obsorbing the blood and veins contracting) will happen. We need your prayers that he will not suffer from a stroke!

This page is specifically for Bubba's medical expenses, and to support cost of living for he and Ash as the recovery will be a long road.

We are a family of believers and know that God has his hand on Bubba. We are asking you to be the body of Christ and give as you are led. 

I may never see you or have an opportunity to thank you but know that you are a blessing! I thank you now for your prayers and support and pray that God return 10 fold!
