Chief Behning still in hospital facing at least 3 surgeries this week

Heidi Behning, the Chief's wife, said he has two broken legs and a severed nerve, among other injuries.

"Tj is out of surgery. He has two broken legs which are not their concern at this time. Infection is the major concern. The leg suffered a lot of damage and has a lot of debris in it. They spent over an hour in the ER and 5 more hours in the OR cleaning it out. He has severed the nerve which allows him to raise his foot. His calf muscle was also torn off. He lost the skin on the front side of his leg and so he will need skin grafts. He will have 3 more surgeries this week at least to clean the wound out and look at repairing the leg. His foot on the “good” leg is all stitched up and they think should heal just fine. His head has some stitches but looks good too. The road to recovery will be long but that we can handle. He is here and that’s all that counts. We sit in the hospital tonight with our hearts full of love and a greater appreciation for the community we live in.
