In 2017, Chris was diagnosed with Dysautonomia, a type of Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) disease that for him, causes him to pass out with little to no warning, sometimes multiple times a day. Since last August Chris has been to the ER numerous times, most of these by ambulance. He has not been able to work since September 2017 because of the passing out and lingering symptoms from these episodes. There are days Chris can barely walk around due to dizziness, weakness, and vision issues. Many times these episodes cause severe migraines, along with other complications. The doctors have said that Chris will not be able to work until we get this under control. The only outlook they gave is that it will take months to make any progress if any since he is very atypical and has compounding factors. In January, Chris's doctor said he was not very optimistic regarding Chris's full recovery and stated it would take "many many many many months" if he makes any recovery at all. He has since had to have his gall bladder removed and then had to have emergency surgery at Mayo Rochester because of a blocked bile duct and infection. That trip was 3 ambulance rides and 4 days in the hospital.
With Chris unable to work, the family is trying to make it on one income and failing. They filed for disability for him in September, but have been denied. At this point, we are hoping to raise money for the mortgage to keep the family in their house, and for the medical bills. If you are not able to contribute financially, all prayers, positive thoughts, and messages are greatly appreciated. Thank you all for supporting the Jensen family during this difficult time.
