Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Here is our story...We are a close knit family who have been hit by a devastating blow....on the morning of November 7, 2020.

That Saturday morning we both got in our cars...Johnny going to help a friend that needed her mailbox replaced, and I heading to lead a walk for water filtration awareness for families of Haiti..  I received a call from Johnny saying he wasnt feeling so good, and really was going home.

I got home, and Johnny isn't there.  I call his cell phone and a nurse in the ER answered it.  After finding out Johnny was brought to ER after crashing his truck, I headed to hospital. The worst experience ever!!

My husband suffered a seizure while driving, and crashed into a guardrail....and when I arrived at ER Johnny was suffering another seizure.

After CT scan and MRI....there was a tumor found and it is a Grade IV Glioblastoma.  Johnny had a craniotomy, and was released November 13th.  This past Saturday morning, around 2am....I heard Johnny make a noise thinking it was due to the shoulder pain, but I turned light on when he didn't answer me and he was seizing..  It took 19-min for the rescue squad to arrive.  Johnny stood up, tried to speak and it was all garbled...Brittanni talked to him saying daddy sit down...once he sat and laid over he began to seize again.

Johnny suffered another seizure in the ER.  Chemo and Radiation is scheduled for next Tuesday.  We are now at a new normal for our little family as our man of the house is needing us three girls to take care of him.  I bought a recliner which should be delivered on Dec 16th.

I have used up all my PTO time, and we both had been diagnosed with COVID-19 ‍♀️ I am not getting paid for being out, and I just want to stay with my husband every moment of every day as we know what is to come.  I was told that I should start this is very hard to ask anyone for help but I guess now is the time.  We will update everyone daily.

Best and much love...
The Wyatt Family
