Help us stop Arnie from going blind
UPDATE JULY 20
The operation was a total success…
The stitches healed very well and without infection. Arnie’s eyelids do not roll inwards any longer. His cornea won’t suffer further damage. His vision has been secured.
Here I am including a few more pictures of the actual procedure as well as of his condition as of today. The pictures are graphic, but the end is worthwhile..
In order to ensure the weight of the skin’s folds wouldn’t aggravate the problem after surgery a large area of skin of the back of the neck had to be taken out.
This is the extra skin that was removed as part of this operation. This removal will ensure Arnie won’t have problems with his eyes any longer.
Stiches removed, no infection, all clear!!!
This is an emergency…
I’m typing from our clinic where I have come to be present during Arnie’s operation.
2. We are having to proceed to a full craneal lift, cut a massive portion of skin from the back of his head and lift the entire skin of the head. This is the only way Arnie will be able to have a good quality of life…
If we don’t do this NOW, Arnie will be soon blind.
Due to the complication of the operation we can’t do this without your help, it’s an emergency. This is why this Chipin will only run for 48 hours. It just can’t wait. Please, if you can, please Chipin on Arnie’s surgery Chipin. Without us (and that includes you), Arnie will end up totally blind.
