Nick Pendergrast, Married at First Sight Star, reveals partial paralysis.
Former 'Married At First Sight' star, Nick Pendergrast shared about something very private and, quite closely, very tendering.
The reality TV star, who hosted Season 4 of Married at First Sight, opened up about details late this week in relation to a near-lethal workplace mishap that occurred about six months ago.
In a prolonged and touchy Instagram post on Friday, Pendergrast described - for the first time to the people in general - that he is as of now partially immobilized and that he was needed to uproot himself away partner, Heather Yerrid and their twins in order to receive decent health ministration.
"It’s been a life-changing and devastating 2019. I knew for myself I needed to be in a better mental state to share what happened to me in January," Pendergrast explained at the opening of his message, which followed the pictures above and below.
Nick also added the fact about how he was unsure of sharing his health issue considering the fear in which it would have been taken yet he said he is being unbolted to all the support that will help him get through the situation.
Pendergast said the pictures were taken so that if he survived, he could see how far he has come.
Nick then delved into the details about what exactly had happened back in January along with how it went on to alter his relationship. He narrated the scenario where he was in an unfortunate severe accident while on the job. When Heather reached the ER, she was told they didn’t know if he was going to make it through the night, says Pendergast.
January 22nd, Nick Pendergast found himself indulged in water for hours, with severe hypothermia, several pelvic fractures, severely comminuted sacral fractures, Morel-Lavallee, and more.
Pendergrast chose not to give any further details than that and rather focused on the aftermath of the accident. He mentions the current time where it has been six and a half months -- where he is finally feeling like he has gotten a somewhat clear answer about what the future is holding for him.
Nick reveals the nerve damage caused by blunt trauma has left him partially paralyzed.
The entire episode has certainly been a hell of a ride for Nick; brand new and scary, he says.
Pendergast says he had never met anyone in a wheelchair or knew of anyone in his circle that had experienced this type of thing up until 2019. Nick had to relocate to a place that had the best doctors to save his life, and the best circle to regain any improvement in his lower body.
Pendergrast shares this past six months have been lonely, gloomy, scary, stressful, and challenging, but says he's now attempting to keep a positive frame of perception.
In his post, Nick writes his goal has been to learn how to become independent again as a disabled individual, along with the support of his family. He says Heather often brings one child at a time to him since she can’t yet travel with two. Pendergast texts how he is continuously fighting every day to stay sane, motivated, and in high spirits. He admits the recovery is being the hardest thing he’s ever had to do and wishes that it never happens to even his worst enemy. He, though, assures of gaining empathy, compassion, and gratitude through this and is still hoping to acquire more.
Nick also aspires of being able to walk again, “if nothing else.” He likewise requests to those who have gone through the same experience as his urging them to share their stories with him. Nick asks for their prayers, love, and hope through this difficult journey.
In February of 2018, Pendergrast and Yerrid welcomed twins, a baby boy named Logan Joseph and a girl, Layla Rae.
The Married at First Sight star is the former husband of castmate Sonia Granados, but they filed for legal separation after almost a year of marriage in 2017.
