Mark's Recovery

$8,075 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 121 people in 7 months

On October 27, 2017 Mark left work with a migraine, blurry vision and tingling in his fingers. His amazing wife, Jenni conviced him to seek medical attention. The hospital performed a CT scan and the results were normal. They treated him for a migraine and were about to discharge him when he began having convulsions on and off for an hour. Due to the unrarity of this, he was transferred to another hospital. At which time, they performed a MRI and injected a dye into his arteries to test his blood flow. During the dye test, they confirmed that Mark was having a massive stroke. He has a large blood clot in his Carotic Artery, which is restricting the blood flow and oxygen to his brain. Mark went into surgery to remove the clot, however, they were not able to successfully remove it due to the structure of his arteries. His probable prognosis is being paralyzed on the right side of his body and his cognitive function (speaking, comprehension, etc) is uncertain. His family and friends are hopeful for his recovery.

Mark celebrated his 34th birthday one week before his unexpected fight began. He is a fighter and he continues to fight everyday. His prognosis and treatment will be a continuous battle.

Please help Mark fight his battle as he will face medical bills and need physical therapy, occupational therapy and home reconstruction to meet his needs.

I received an email from the "gofundme" website. Requiring me to post an update with the following statements...

The beneficiary is my friend, we play on the same softball team and his wife is my co-worker.

I am withdrawing the funds in my name.

When Mark's recovery campaign is complete, I will be issuing a check with the full amount raised and I will deliver the check in-person to Mark.

Mark had another surgery this morning to remove blood that was found around the tissue where they had to open his skull. The latest report is that he did well this afternoon. The nurse asked him a question & it is believed that he nodded "yes" in response, not just random movement :-) His wife, Jenni has been reading the supporting messages to Mark & is extremely grateful!

Thank you for your continuing support...

The neurologist realized Mark had a dialted pupil which is a sign of swelling in the brain. He went into surgery this morning to open his skull to relieve the pressure. He is now out of surgery. There was significant brain swelling. He is now in recovery & we wait 7-10 days for the swelling to decrease. Please keep the prayers & kind words coming!
