Wayne's Medical Expenses

$8,930 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 80 people in 31 months
On Thursday March 31, a very terrible incident occurred. While Wayne was working in the shop, there was an explosion in which led to a 911 call with the ambulance taking him to Craig's Memorial Hospital. He was soon transferred via flight for life to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction. He is now waiting for surgery. As we all know these medical expenses are extreme as well as the traveling to be by his side in a time of need. Wayne is a loving father of 4 kids and a wonderful husband, as well as a hardworking self-employed man. With Christ on his side, as well as our family's, he is conscious but in a lot of pain. We would appreciate your prayers and any kind of support for Wayne and his family. With something as tragic as this, the last thing they should have to worry about is a financial burden. Please know that your donations are a blessing and very much appreciated. God Bless.

Waynes surgery went well, the surgeon reopened his incision on the right side due to the metal plate folding up causing lots of pain to Waynes nose as well as prolonging the healing process of both his cheek and nose, and the swelling was not going down. On the left side the plate that is replacing the cheek was starting to protrude through his gums so the surgeon shaved some of the metal and reinserted it where it needed to go and stitched it back up. Wayne also had his arch Bars removed (such a blessing ) they have been cutting his mouth and caused tons of pain. Wayne was glad to get those out, they left those in an extra 2 weeks due to Waynes jaw not being stable enough to keep the teeth in place. Since he shattered that whole area they were waiting for the bones to form back to get her as much as possible, and the teeth to settle more, Wayne has lost 20 lbs and is still only able to eat liquids and a small list of super soft foods. We definitely feel we are on the down hill side of this all. His pain is extremely bad hoping to get that a but more controlled. The doctor said he will be fully healed in 3 to 6 months. Thank you all for the prayers. Please keep them coming. GOD is good, in hospital they tried daily to do his second IV and each day they tried over 5 times. Failing each time. So we prayed that yesterday that would not be an issue and the nurse we got was fantastic she prayed about his IV before hand and sure enough the first time got it. God is always glorified and amazing
