Grant Denyer's wife Chezzi shares emotional update on his injury: "Life isn't always easy"

The usually chipper TV host's road to recovery is far from smooth.

By Jess Pullar
The phrase 'been through the wars' couldn't ring truer for Grant Denyer, who has been in hospital for more than a week after sustaining a bad back injury.
The usually chipper television host worried fans across the country when he was rushed to hospital in late March over the debilitating injury - with his wife Chezzi Denyer sharing frequent updates on his condition.
Shortly after the incident, Chezzi said Grant had suffered an annular fissure, which is a tear in the lower disk. Described as "incredibly painful", the injury has left Grant unable to walk or sit at the moment.
And as if that doesn't sound awful enough, his worried wife has now shared another confronting update about Grant that showed just how far things have gone.

Taking to her Instagram account on Tuesday evening, Chezzi shared a picture of Grant speaking to his daughter Scout on Facetime while sitting in a hospital bed.
She 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 then explained that while Grant had originally been discharged from hospital on Sunday, he had to be readmitted after "jumping 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 wrote.

The emotional wife and mum then sympathised with all people who have loved ones in hospital: "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".
She continued: "I think sometimes we forget that life isn't always easy.. And that's ok... 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 post comes after a long week for Chezzi and her two daughters, who have endured Grant's pain with him.
"He's in a lot of pain and it's really difficult to watch," his wife confessed to Grant's 2Day FM radio co-hosts Ed Kavalee and Ash London on Friday morning.
She likened the tough circumstance to a previous injury the Dancing with the Stars host sustained after a bad car accident in 2008, which left him with serious injuries.
"It took me back to when he broke his back 10 years ago because the pain is so intense when he moves that you can't help but get quite angry, and that's not in his nature."

Explaining the injury himself on the 2Day FM breakfast show last week, Grant lightly described the unfortunate incident.
"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," he explained.
We're wishing Grant a speedy recovery so he can get back to his wife and daughters soon!
