Following a MRI, it was determined he is not a surgery candidate, yet his symptoms persist.
Many doctor appointments followed and on December 22nd, 2017, Tyson was also diagnosed with Intractable Chronic Migraines. The doctors believe his brain chemistry has been impacted by the Chiari Malformation and has created an imbalance.
The good news is that there is a plan to get Tyson well. The bad news is that he is prohibited from driving, which is his profession. His recovery could take from 6 months to 2 years. He cannot work for at least 6 more months.
Tyson, who is 36 years old and his wife, Sarah have 4 awesome children. As a family, they are doing all they can to make ends meet and are making many sacrifices. The doctor’s bills are mounting and many of his appointments are a 3-hour drive to Seattle or Spokane.
At the end of the day, it’s all about family and friends. Tyson deserves all the support we can provide.
