Support Will and Jami

Update posted by Christy Hernandez On Aug 05, 2017

UPDATE: Will is progressing through therapy very well! We're just waiting for insurance approval, and if all goes as planned he will be moved to an acute rehab program at Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids on Monday! He is determined to get better so he can get back home, and back to work, as soon as possible!

Jami is recovering well from the birth, but she is having a very hard time emotionally (understandably so). She and Isabella were discharged this afternoon, and they immediately went to the U of I so Daddy could meet his baby girl. Jami said it was a wonderful site to see, and the picture just doesn't do it justice! Jami can't wait for the day Will gets to go home and they can live together as a whole family again!

Jami--

They say it takes a village, but sometimes you don't realize how big your village is until a crisis hits. My village is AMAZING! I am so appreciative of all the help/support we have received so far, and I don't feel like "thank you" is enough! Everything is really starting to hit me emotionally at this point, and I'm really starting to feel overwhelmed.

Will isn't in quite as much pain today as he was yesterday. He's still in ICU but only because they're waiting for an available bed on the floor they're going to move him to. Otherwise, no updates on him.

Baby appointment was okay, but I still haven't progressed at all since last week. I'm supposed to call my OB on Monday to let her know what I want to do as far as inducing next week or not, but what I decide will depend on a few different factors with Will and the hospital. This is all assuming I don't have baby over the weekend...

First and foremost a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone for your support!!! Keep the prayers and well wishes coming!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

The surgery was great. They repaired most of his hip. Doctors said he will need a hip replacement probably in the next couple of years. They were looking at his ankle and decided to wait until he heals a little bit better before they try operating on that. Yesterday was a trying day for Will and his family. Will is in alot pain. Pain management is on the agenda for today. He is hoping to be moved from the ICU to a regular room by the weekend.

Jami--

Will was taken back for surgery at 7:30, and it could last anywhere from 3-10 hours. He is pretty scared of the possible outcome, but all we can do (and are doing) is hope for the best! I will update after surgery!

As for me, since many have been asking, I'm exhausted! I can't seem to sleep more than 3-4 hours a night. Many people have asked what we need right now, and honestly I don't know how to answer that!

The boys are at home with our friend, and the amount of info they've been given is limited. Logan was very worried about Will, so he was able to come up last night and visit. It was very helpful for him to be able to see/talk to Dad to know he is okay even though he was hurt pretty bad. I really miss my babies, especially knowing they don't understand why Mommy isn't there, but at least they're with somebody who knows their routine and they're able to be in their normal environment.

Once again, thank you everybody for the continued support, thoughts, and prayers!
