KUSA morning anchor Kyle Dyer underwent four hours of reconstructive surgery last week following Wednesday’s dog bite incident, and she expects to undergo another procedure in the next few weeks.
In a post on her Facebook page over the weekend, Dyer described the surgery and thanked viewers for their support.
“After a 4 hour surgery, I have 70 stitches in my upper lip, lower lip and nose,” Dyer wrote. “I am unable to talk because my mouth is stitched shut to allow for the skin graft to take and get the blood circulating in my lips again.”
Dyer is scheduled to return to the doctor this week for an evaluation.
“Once I’m all healed, I will return to my friends at 9NEWS who have been remarkably supportive as have viewers and friends throughout the country,” Dyer told her Facebook followers. “Again, I can’t say thank you enough for all of your notes and prayers of encouragement and love. They give me great strength, which along with my faith, will see me through a successful recovery!”
