I Had to withdraw. My Mother had a brain aneurysm and went unconscious 8:30 Tuesday Morning. My Stepfather saved her by administrating CPR until the paramedics arrived. I flew immediately home and do not know what will be the outcome after her aneurysm was clipped in a 6 hour surgery. She is in a coma and it could be a few days or weeks depending upon God's choice.Therapy will take months and months if God wants her to stay with us. As far as the WSOB, It is not a priority. I already lost my Father in 1992 and this is my only Mother. I will do all I can to be here for her and for my stepfather of who I am indebted to for his Love of my Mom and at least giving her a chance.. Until I know more that is all I can say. Thanks for all your support and well wishes and prayers in advance. We need them as this is a life changing situation for myself and family.
All the best to all of you and one day at a time for me. Danny Wiseman

Aw, that's got to be a bad feeling. I hope and pray for the best for Danny's mother.

Danny Wiseman is a class act and a champion. I wish his mom a speedy recovery. I remember when his dad passed...

Danny... I sincerely hope that God will grant your Mom a speedy recovery.
I lost my Dad in 2000, and value my Mom more than anything on this earth,
so I truly know how you must feel right now.  My prayers will be with her. 


Your friend,
Arnie Goldman.

Updates from Danny:

First I want to thank each and everyone of you for the kind thoughts, well wishes, thoughtfulness and most of all the prayers. This is the toughest thing I have ever had to deal with along with losing my Father in 1992. Obviously I will not be bowling today and do not know yet if at all.We have to take this hour by hour, day to day. I will have to fly back to Detroit to get all my items from my room,my truck, equipment and drive back to Baltimore eventually. This weekend is the key. 3 days and Mom has show some improvement. The main concern to the doctors is infection. Still unconscious. There is WAY more to this that's going on I will not get into. Just remember though she is in God's hands and we are all hopeful. I appreciate all the responses and I ,as always, appreciate all the great fans and wonderful people and the support.

PS> I spoke to Mark Roth thurs. He sounded good and was concerned for Mom and I. I will tell everyone he is improving but he has a long battle himself and as my friend and bowling hero he is as tough as they come. Walking with a cane and sometimes without. Left side is still a problem but he is working hard on it.

Take care of your parents Nothing matters more.
Thanks again ! Danny.

Another update:

Quick update... I will soon try to get updates on my website when time permits but I know some would want to know since it's been one week. My Mother had a little better day today. Still semi unconscious but opening her eyes at times. It's a one hour at a time one day at a time situation and a long road ahead of my stepfather and I. There is the pneumonia that was caused from aspirating, the fever from it, the brain still swollen and draining as well as a bunch of other complications. Once again thank you all for the prayers,well wishes and emails I have received. We really appreciate the kindness and compassion very much. All the best to everyone. Danny

More updates from Danny:

2 weeks after-- 8-25-2009: Mom is still unconscious from the blood particles in the brain fluid.She took a few steps backward from last week. The docs are doing a lumbar puncture to relieve the pressure. She has had a few of these to drain but they are doing a permanent one soon. She also will get a trach for breathing as well as getting a feeding tube in her stomach. This is to get the hoses out of her mouth and nose. The pneumonia is still persistent also but the last antibiotic seems to be helping more. She isn't coughing as much. We are at a loss but remain positive for the outcome. This could take weeks to see some improvement. It's one day at a time for us and we thank everyone for the love, support, compassion and most the prayers for Mom's well being.
------------------------------
8-26-2009
Yesterday the Doctors did a LP ( Lumbar puncture) to relieve the pressure build up on the brain as well as to drain the blood particles that remain. Also done was a feeding tube in the stomach as well as a Tracheotomy for breathing as well as to get all the tubes out of her mouth and nose. I found links on this and it's a scary situation....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subarachnoid_hemorrhage.....and http://www.bafound.org/info/subarachnoid.php
Mom had a stage 4 subarachnoid hemorrhage
---------------------------------------------------------
8-28-2009
Today was somewhat better. Not great but since it's been 3 days since the Lumbar Puncture the cerebral fluid is clearing up. Still some blood in it but more of a yellowish look instead of murky red. The pneumonia is still persistent.Her breathing is better with the trach. We got some open eyes at times and a little movement. This is heartbreaking as Mom was so active for a 73 year old and now helpless.
-------------------------------------------------
9-1-2009-3 weeks
Over the weekend there was some more hope. Mom opened her eyes more as well as followed voices when her name was called. The LP was taken out but the fluid built up again. There were some slight movements of her head, legs and right arm. The pressure from the fluid build up remains a problem and the pneumonia seems to be dissipating.Monday more chest x-rays, a ct scan and a spinal tap. There was a small blood clot in the fluid that released through the spinal tap so we'll see if this makes any changes. Still not knowing the unknown of what is in her head hurts us. Time and patience is all we can hope for as well as prayers from all.
---------------------------------------
9-2-2009- Today they are doing a MRI to look deeper into why her cerebral fluid isn't flowing from the head to the body. It's built up again and yesterday very little response. Thursday a permanent shunt will be placed to help in the aid of the cerebral fluid.
----------------------------------------
9-4 2009-- Well a day after the shunt and not much going on. We did see some response right after the surgery Thurs evening but Friday it was like those hopes went the other way. The docs are going to adjust the shunt to increase the cerebral fluid so hopefully this weekend we see some responses to our touch as well as more to sound.

Danny gave up bowling in the entire World Series of Bowling to care for his mother. To me, that's a class act, and one who knows where his priorities are.

I can only imagine what it's like to be in a situation like this, where you have your livelihood conflicting with the unbreakable bond of family. Danny made the right choice. I pray his mother will come through.
