During the first week of August Chris was diagnosed with Endocarditis. Essentially endocarditis is an infection of the endocardium, which is the inner lining of your heart chambers and heart valves. The bacteria build up on his heart valve has caused enough damage to require valve replacement via heart surgery.
Unfortunately, some of the bacteria made its way to his brain prior to being eradicated which has caused a brain aneurysm. Due to the swelling of the brain and the severity of the bacterial infection, an intensive antibiotic regimen is required which means a prolonged stay in the Neuro ICU will be necessary before the heart surgery can even be considered.
For Chris, this means an extended period where he will be unable to work. When you pair that with his wife taking maternity leave after the birth of their newest child, you leave a father of 4 and a wife of a newborn without any income for an unforseen amount of time. With extensive Medical Expenses piling up daily, this would be a challenge for anyone.
If you are able, and can find it in your heart, Please help this family as they are in dire need of love and support. We understand that not everyone is in a position to give monetary support so Prayers for this family are greatly appreciated!
We have faith that God has his hands in this situation and ask that everyone get on board and support Chris on his Road To a Victorious Recovery!
