Chezzi Denyer has revealed the effect her husband Grant’s on-farm accident has had on their family, 10 days after the TV host was rushed to hospital.
Sharing a photo of their daughter Sailor FaceTiming Grant, Chezzi wrote, “She absolutely adores her Daddy and I know she misses him so much right now. I miss him too, and I only left his bedside about 4 hours ago to fly home.”
She added, “And while tonight I feel a bit exhausted, and a tad emotional being reunited with my girls... I just want to send out massive telepathic hugs to everyone who has someone in hospital tonight. A big shoutout to everyone missing a parent or loved one tonight… life isn’t always easy.
“And for my little family, we will count down the days until we can all head back down to Sydney to hang out with Daddy!”
The heartbreaking update comes after Chezzi shared that Grant had suffered an annular fissure, which is a tear in the lower disk of the back, meaning the TV host can only sit and stand for short periods.
“He was discharged on Sunday and we thought he was good but we may have jumped the gun a little bit. We knew it was a stretch but wanted to see how he went. And then realised it was a bit too early. So back into hospital he went,” she explained via Instagram.
Grant revealed the shock news on his 2Day FM breakfast show on March 25.
“I was down the paddock mate with my Akubra on, my flannos', just slamming away on a star picket with a huge sledgehammer and twang - away it went,” Grant told hosts Ed and Ash.
He later confirmed he was trying to hammer a post into the ground with a mallet when the injury happened.
“I'm trying to grow some trees and these trees need to be held up by posts,” Grant explained.
