He's making progress! 90 Day Fiancé star David Toborowsky and his wife Annie Suwan have been living through any parent's worst nightmare after his son Jacob was accidentally shot in the face by a friend last month. Jacob's injuries were not life-threatening but they did require multiple surgeries in order from him to completely heal, and David recently shared an update with fans on his Facebook page after Jacob's most recent procedure to remove the bullet that was lodged in his cheek — and it looks like the 18-year-old is doing well.
"I wanted to give an update on my son Jacob. He had surgery yesterday down in Houston. The damage to the muscles in his face are more severe than [first] thought," David wrote on Facebook. "The main part of the bullet was removed. Please keep him in your prayers as the road he has is going to be long and hard. Thank you all again for the prayers, messages, and thoughts."
Jacob is currently living in Houston with his mother, David's ex-wife, while he is recovering from the incident. Jacob's older sister Ashley revealed details about the scary incident that led to Jacob being shot, and she explained that Jacob was hanging out with a friend when that friend (whose name is being withheld because he is a minor) pulled out a gun and started waving it around, according to local TV station WDRB. The friend assured Jacob that the gun was not loaded and that the safety was on, but that wasn't the case. His pal accidentally pulled the trigger and shot Jacob in his right cheek. Thankfully, he was rushed to a nearby hospital and miraculously survived.
At first, doctors were wary about removing the bullet because they were afraid that it would be more of a risk to take it out than if they just left it there, according to Radar. But it looks like they were able to remove a decent amount without causing too many complications.
