After a long hard road of suffering with no diagnosis, we finally got one.  Lee Anderson was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation,  a condition in which brain tissue extends into the spinal canal.  Lee underwent brain surgery on September 1st and is on the road to recovery.  As you can imagine the medical bills are significant. While insurance helps, it does not cover it all.  In fact, 30% of the medical expense will be Lee and Amy's responsibility.  We would like to raise donations from all of Lee's and Amy's family and friends.  Having this kind of debt to pay is very difficult and stressful, the average American can relate to this.  Any donation you can afford, even if $20 would be so appreciated.  Having this piece of mind will allow Lee to relax and focus on what is most important - healing and moving on with a healthy and happy life.

Sharing an update from Lee..............
Well, it's been a rough couple of days. Saturday night I got into a sneezing fit....something that I feared since surgery....and I may have done something to myself.
Every sneeze (about 8 of them) hurt like hell in the back of my head, Since then I have had a headache that doesn't go away, only it's in the back and top of my head rather than behind my eyes like all the other headaches. I am also nauseous all the time. Today I noticed that the vision in my left eye is blurry and the oscillopsia has returned. Last night I felt like I had the flu. so I just went to bed.
I spoke with the doctor today and he thinks I may have ruptured a suture or 2 inside my head where he sealed the Dura with a piece of membrane he took from another part of my skull.and may have leaked some spinal fluid. The Dura is the sac that holds my brain stem and cervical spine.
So now I'm back on bed rest, wearing compression stockings and monitoring the symptoms. If it doesn't get better in a few days he will have me in for a scan.

Many people have never heard of Chiari Malformation. There is a lot of info online but we need to spread the word! Lee is still suffering from moderate headaches and neck stiffness but that is to be expected. He still has a long road but he is doing well considering! Thanks for all your support!!!
