When Armin was 7 years old, he had an aneurysm in his head,and had a very high chance of death. He was in the hospital for months,and needed surgery to fix it. During that time,everyone in school was worried about him,and we sent him cards.His parents were in the hospital with him for a lot of the time,and almost lost their house because they couldn't go to work. Armin was very scared during the surgery's and stayed in the hospital in between each of his three surgery's.
Because of the Aneurysm,Armin had 2 inches of blood filling up in his head. His first surgery was to take a bone out of the right side of his head,and drain out the blood. The doctors were going to put the bone back in his head,but found another popped vein in the back of his head,so they had another surgery to drain the blood from there. His final surgery took place when he was 7,and it was putting the bones back in. "How did you feel before the first surgery?" asked reporter Adam. "I was scared because the doctors had to hold me down because I was kicking and screaming,trying to take of the mask." said Armin "but after the first surgery I just kept the mask on and went with it."
