My grandson had an aneurysm that burst in his brain when he was 8 years old. He spent 6 months in the hospital, had part of his skull removed to relieve the pressure on his brain and a shunt put in to drain excess fluid. He is now 11, and he recently had the shunt removed which they replaced with medication. He still has very little mobility and cannot speak. We knew nothing about brain aneurysms before this happened to him. Thank you for bringing awareness about this condition to the world. I wonder how many others had children as young as my grandson that this has happened to. My son and daughter-in-law are doing an awesome job caring for him and we wish we could do more but we live quite a distance away. We pray every day that our grandson could be restored to the smart, lively, independent boy that he was. Right now he is such a trooper and has to endure so much as a result of his condition. I believe it is his strong fighting spirit and the love and care of his parents and God ‘s grace that keeps him going.
