Short and sweet-In 1991, Lonny was involved in a rollover accident while serving our country in the U.S. Army. The outcome was a broken back at the T-8 region of his spine. Through many years his pain has been managed through good physical stamina and working hard. As the years have progressed- so has a major spinal deformity known as idiopathic scoliosis. Left untreated would be an irresponsible thing for this amazing husband and father to do...hence comes the spinal fusion .
On Thursday, October 6th, Lonny will be under the care of Dr Nathaniel Whitney, Sacred Heart- Spokane,WA., for a T-1 to pelvic fusion. We are told this is an 8-12 hour surgical procedure. We are told he will be in the hospital for 7-14 days. We are told he has the best chance of a successful recovery because he is so young, fit and great mindset! I will manage this site with updates as presented. Please pray for all our kids that they may not fear this event.Please pray for Dr. Whitneys strength and energy for such a long surgery.Please pray that my strength, humor and humbleness can keep a good balance to be the best wife and mom that I can be.Please pray recovery will be nothing but amazing miracles.
