“UPDATE: I will be permanently paralyzed from the mid-chest down,” Matt Buyten’s Instagram said. “The procedure was just to put in hardware to stabilize me so I (could) sit up and do what repairs were needed. I am devastated and way (too) active of a person to be tied down, not sure how I am going to do that. Mainly pissed off, I screwed my family over, can’t play with Jett and do things with him.
