On July 5 April Wagner had surgery to correct her Scoliosis and Kyphosis in her spine. She underwent a 2 part, 11 hour surgery. If that was not enough she had complications resulting in a spinal cord injury from surgery affecting her left leg and an emergency bowel resection surgery. It is unknown whether she will regain full use of her left leg. April has also been unable to hold down any food since her 1st surgery. A PICC line (peripheral inserted central catheter) has been placed so April can receive nutrients through her vein.
In the near future, when April is able to be discharged from the hospital she will need to stay at a skilled nursing facility for further rehabilitation and physical therapy. This stay will possibly be a month long.
April is a wife and mother of 4 and a ballet school owner and instructor. April is a warrior, she is fighting hard to heal and get back to her children and Neil. She is facing so many unknowns at this point in her recovery.
The money raised will be going directly to April's family. She has a very long road ahead of her. Please keep April and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
