Wyatt is home from Children's hospital again. He was lucky and had an outing for a friends birthday party yesterday. It is a little more tricky with his care now with his two arm casts. He can't help much without use of his arms. Hopefully once the pain is gone, he will have a little more shoulder mobility. His leg splint is now removed, so his leg cast is just below the knee, so he will now be able to work up to bending that leg, that will help some hopefully. He is hoping to go to school tomorrow but unsure if that will happen with all the meds. Will just have to see how things work out the next few days, next date he has with the orthopedic surgeon is Thursday and we will see how things are healing.
for those of you following on Gofund, here is a current update, Wyatt had surgery today. They put pins in both wrists, one wasn't healing right and one they didn't know was broke before. New cast put on foot, staples from his leg were removed and he still has the full splint on his leg. He will be staying again at childrens hospital in Milwaukee.
latest update on Wyatt and his doctor appt. today, looks like they discovered his left wrist is broke also. His right arm is not healing the way they want and are going to take off cast Thursday, then will either recast, put pins in or screws and plates, won't know until they take the cast off. Looks like another surgery though and more hospital time. Talked to him tonight and he sounded good, happy to be back at school.
Big day for Wyatt today, he went to school. Arrangements all made for a bus with wheelchair access, special room set up for his needs, and helpers assigned to help him throughout the day to get him to classes and such. I am guessing he is going to be extremely tired, we weren't sure if he was going to make it through a whole day, but he did. He was super excited this morning. More x-rays tomorrow.
Wyatt is getting stronger everyday. Monday will be a day to find about how and when he can return to school. Plans are being put in place so after that we will just have to see physically what he will be ready for. Tuesday will be more x-rays. He does have a new lime green covering for his arm cast, so he now has room for more signatures.
Wyatt had his first doctors appt. Since being home.doctor said His leg and toes are looking great, a little concern with his arm/wrist, seems to have been healing quicker than expected and may be a little crooked.they Put a wedge in his cast and will see what happens. He goes back next week for more xrays. Not quite sure when he will get all his staples and pins out. Also having a meeting at school on Monday to figure out his needs to see if he can attend school when he is up to it. We have shifted his injection times so it would be before school. School work was dropped off today, but I don't think he will even look at it for at least a few more days. He is getting stronger, today he lifted his left leg for the first time. He also is getting more impatient, about getting out. Think he really has had enough of laying in bed.
Wyatt has been home for a few days now. He has been getting stronger everday, I think he may be getting a little cabin fever as he wants to get out of the house badly. He now has strength to sit himself up, which helps alot for taking care of him and to get him in the wheelchair. He really won't eat, but hoping that may change when he can move around more. Tomorrow he has a trip to the orthopedic doctor and we will probably will find out what is in store for him with recovery and physical therapy. Last night he even found himself some humor by poking and pinching his sleeping grandpa with his claw grabber, he thought grandpa was snoring to loud in the chair next to him. We are still amazed by everyones generosity and we can not thank everyone enough for all they have done or are doing. On a side note, Evan and Ella went back to school yesterday and I think they were happy to see their friends.
Today will be a day of lots of differant emotions, we are very fortunate and Thankful,Wyatt should be released from the hospital today. The goal was to get him out in time for his mothers funeral, well today is that heartbreaking day. lots of care and therapy will be needed ahead, it is going to be hard. We are thankful for everyones thoughts,prayers and caring. And words can not express the gratitude for the donations to help with the care. Today is going to be very difficult and also when it sets in that their mother/wife is gone.
let the therapy begin
Finally! The subway he has wanted. They said he could have food today, well we brought him food.
We are so greatful for eveyones generosity and support it means so much to us that people care.
yesterday Wyatt was cleared for liquid intake, now today FOOD!!! I am sure he now can really think about Subway and Dairy Queen, he may have it soon.
look at that smile!!
Wyatt looking much better! He still can't eat or drink anything but he sure wants Subway and a chocolate Extreme Blizzard from Dairy Queen. Think that may have to wait awhile.
thank you to everyone for your generosity. Just a quick update to let you know Wyatt is doing well. He had another surgery yesterday, but he has been moved from ICU and has had most of his tubes and machines removed. He has started physical therapy and he is on the road to recovery. He has good spirits and wants to make sure everyone signs his cast.
Wyatt was in a serious automobile accident on november 15th,2013, this accident left him with multiple injuries. The car accident also resulted in leaving him and his brother and sister with out a mother. Along with Wyatts physical recovery, the family will also need help with the costs of emotional healing and support. With the tragic loss of Tricia, Joe(Wyatts father)will have a long hard road ahead of him, hopefully this can help relieve some of the financial stress of medical bills and the care of the children.
