So…I’ve been gone…

I really am sorry that I’ve been away. In the last week I’ve tried to type this post out maybe 20 times and deleted them, every time….

I’m starting to think my house has bad juju or something. Anything bad that can happen has happened since we’ve lived here. I guess ya’ll are wondering what has happened to make me leave you for so long….

Sigh…(holding my breath)….here it is…

5 weeks ago my husband was electrocuted. It was pretty bad. I can’t go into a lot of details, only because I want to respect his privacy right now. If he ever gives me permission to talk more in depth, I will. He’s given me permission to post this picture, but nothing further.

He’s already endured 4 surgeries and is scheduled for a 5th one at the beginning of November. It’s going to be a really long, long road for him. However, we’re going to be home permanently soon. In the meantime, please stick with me. I’m coming back. I think about this blog and my dear friends all the time.

  1. I have been looking for you Heather and I was worried that maybe YOU were again struggling with your health. I’m so sorry to hear about your poor husband! What a hard time that, now both of you have been through! I am glad to hear that your husband is where he needs to be and getting the help that he needs. Don’t forget to take care of yourself during this time Heather. Coop needs both of his parents healthy. You can do this. Just love your husband and yourself, as well as Coop and everything will turn out. All of my love! xo

    1. Isn’t it crazy how just one month later, he was injured. It was almost exact to the day! We are doing pretty good. I’m trying really hard to get my needs taken care of, but it’s not so easy. Luckily, I have a great family that has helped me more than anything. I’m truly blessed.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about you husband’s accident. You will need to be strong for him. I will keep you both in my prayers. Know that the doctors can do amazing things now with electrical burns. I understand what you are going through, I have been there. Hugs to you.

    1. you’re so right. We learned that there’s a new skin grafting called recell. It just got FDA approved. Unfortunately, we didn’t qualify. We are only about 2 weeks out from where they grafted his chest and it looks amazing. We’re anxious to see what it looks like when it’s 100%. For his hands, they aren’t grafted yet. We’re hoping that they will be soon. We just have a problem with his thumb. We hope it’ll correct to make life easier.

      1. My husband had a flap graft on his thumb when he suffered bad electrical burns over 30 years ago. They tried traditional ones and they wouldn’t take. They finally tried this, it hadn’t been done in many years, and it took. I will keep praying for your husband and his doctors to find the best treatment for him.
