Second time around...

Wyatt's wound hasn't been healing properly so at his follow up appointment this last Thursday his doctor recommended that he get another surgery to help with the healing process. He recommended that he get a debridement (cut the wound open and clean it out). So here we are again today at the hospital where my husbands life was changed forever for a second surgery for a debridement on his wound. They are having a plastic surgeon in the OR this time along with his Orthopedic surgeon. His surgery will last about an hour. Wyatt is really frustrated with this situation and just wants to get his temporary prosthetic so he can semi move on with his life. But now this is only another set back for him and will now make his prosthetic a little further away. He is getting more and more frustrated and gets jealous of people with two fully functioning feet. He calls it "foot envy."
This is such a hard time in our family's life and as we keep trying to move forward we just feel like everything is pushing us backwards. As hard as this is I know that our Heavenly Father is with us and would never give us anything we couldn't handle. I love you Wyatt. Families are Forever!

  1. Jenny, I know just how you feel when you say you're starting to move on when something terrible happens just to have a huge set back. Talk about getting kicked while you're down. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, but you're right! Heavenly Father wouldn't give you anything you couldn't handle. I needed to hear that today. I hope everything goes perfect this time.... So sorry.

  2. What a total bummer! I'm so sorry to hear that Wyatt needs another surgery. Hope everything goes well. We'll be thinking of your family!

  3. I wish I could kick someone while they are down!!! I guess I could crutch them.

  4. Tell Wyatt to relax and let his leg heal. The less he does the quicker it will heal. I know how hard it is. I hope things will get better from here. Call or email me anytime.
