Default Boy's Broken Jaw

Many of you may have seen this on Facebook but I wanted to post here as I know folks here would like to know, and don't do Facebook.

Friday afternoon, before the 1st game of the season, Dane and a teammate collided in practice and the result for my son was a broken jaw. Their game Saturday was in Odessa and he rode with the team from New Mexico State to there where we met up with him. We went hoping to watch him play but instead got to watch him watch his teammates.

Friday morning, he will have his jaws wired shut. He will be in that state for 6 weeks. His meals will consist of anything we can convert to liquid and he can stomach to eat THROUGH A SYRINGE!. I'm hearing he can expect to lose 10-15% of his body weight. He's here for the rest of the semester and we're hoping the time flies by for him...and for us.

If you're so inclined, keep Team Morris in your prayers. He was really excelling on the field and had a bright season ahead of him. He'll bounce back but this next 6 weeks might be a bit rough for a kid that enjoys his meals!

That stinks and prayers up!
I had major reconstructive jaw surgery when I was 16 to correct a hereditary bone issue. Wired shut for about 6 weeks and eating through a syringe- lost about 30 lbs.
I had a cookbook of nothing but blender foods- most were horrific!
Best thing was drinking protein shakes 3 times a day and my mom made a potato soup with massive amounts of butter and cream- anything to keep weight on.
The worst (I was in ICU for 4 days after the surgery, hospital for another 3 and then home) was coming off the pain meds and throwing up- darn near choked a few times.
Good luck in recovery- no fun but I've been there.

One of my best friends had his jaw broken in college and had to have his jaw wired shut. Doctor made him wear a pair of wire snips around his neck in case he were to throw up he could get one of us to snip the wire so he wouldn't choke to death on it. They told him if he forgot them and was in that situation to have one of us knock his teeth out, luckily it never came to that. He lost an insane amount of weight, looked like a completely different person.

Broke my jaw in 2 places in 2002 A Horse kicked me. It ain't no fun I went from a solid 187 to 130ish the only thing that kept me from withering further was about 8 milk shakes a day with protein mixed in. The blended food doesn't work worth a darn everything clogs up trying to get through your teeth. When he finally gets the wire cut off he won't be able to open his mouth but maybe 1/8th for a couple weeks.

Here he is Saturday with us when we caught up with him at the hotel in Odessa. You'd never know by looking and that grin that anything is wrong.

They checked him for a concussion at my and the initial dentist's insistence. Dentist said with the blow he took he likely had one. Nope. No concussion.

Thanks all! We will battle through this. Strong kid with incredible discipline. He'll destroy recovery, I'm certain.

Hate to hear the crap news. I too have broken my jaw. I had a terrible experience getting it healed properly but my break was more of a shatter. I ended up having 3 surgeries and in fixation for 6 weeks after each for a total of 18 weeks.

After the first surgery which was in Austin the hospital or doctor did not give me any guidance on food just told me to have whatever I could suck through a straw. After the second surgery i was given a cookbook for people on blended diets - most of the recipes were not good. I ended up drinking a lot of beef & chicken broth mostly for the flavor. I also ate a lot of broccoli cheese soup run through a blender.

After the first surgery I lost quite a bit of weight. after the second and third surgery I was eating a couple shakes per day with Blue Bell, a bannana, a couple of raw eggs, chocolate syrup and an ensure and I began putting on a little weight.

My doctor didn't wire me shut until after the surgery since at the time i had never been under anesthesia and didn't know if it would make me sick, it was done the next day in his office and I was given a pair of wire cutters in the event I got sick.

For me the pain was not too bad, most people thought it would be. I would get more frustrated over the whole ordeal.

After getting unwired as mentioned above he will probably have some atrophy set in and it will take a little time before being able to eat solid food again but it is good to be able to eat stuff like mashed potatoes again.

Best of luck to the young man and am praying for a full and speedy recovery.

I remember arriving into the hotel at bownanza about 4 years ago to get a call from Dad that they were hauling Kenny off w/ a mild case due to a dirty block going full speed...I don't recall ever seeing an ambulance roll on the field in the years I was playing football.

I'm sure he's bummed to be missing playing time & do hope he bounces back quickly!!
