Please pray for Wesley.
Wesley is thirty years old. In April 2008 Wesley started getting very sick. What doctors thought were sinuses; ended up being a rare brain disorder. Chiari Malformation. On July 9th, he had brain surgery to fix the Chiari. The surgery was successful. All seemed to be going well until August 30th, 2008. Wesley became very ill. After going to the hospital he had swelling and fluid on his brain. Wesley’s brain was very swollen and he had a severe infection. He spent several days in ICU and was diagnosed with Pseudotumor Cerebri; (or false tumor of the brain). To relieve the pressure and drain the fluid, a shunt was put in on Sept. 5th. On Oct. 1st a new shunt was put in. He has continuous problems with the shunt, which the Dr.'s are trying to fix. Both brain diseases are rare and there is NO cure. But, with the shunt and being watch closely by doctors he can live a normal life.
Wesley is married with four young children.
