Watch Buddy Valastro Return Home to His Family After "Nightmare" Bowling Accident
Buddy Valastro will do anything to bake again.
Less than three months after the Cake Boss star suffered an accident that resulted in multiple operations on his hand, fans are taking a closer look at his journey to healing.
On Wednesday, December 23rd, TLC will broadcast a two-hour special called Buddy Valastro: Road to Recovery. And in an exclusive glimpse from E! News, viewers quickly learn how quickly the whole family has mobilized to support the world-famous baker.
In the clip, Buddy arrived back home almost 12 hours after the operation, where the extended family was hoping for any updates. After Lisa Valastro described the wand that went through her husband's hand, she couldn't help but see how much Buddy's life had changed in a matter of minutes.
"Is that a dream?" She asked. "It's a nightmare. Anyway, a dream." Buddy looked noticeably weak when he expressed his disappointment with the accident. "I'm so mad at myself," he recalled. "My hand is everything to me."

Back in September, E! News confirmed that Buddy was involved in a "terrible" bowling accident in which his hand was impaled.
"There was a malfunction with the bowling pinsetter, a common solution in the past but it turned into a terrible accident," his spokesman said at the time. "After trying to disengage the cone from the cage mechanism, his right hand got stuck in the device and was squeezed. Unable to remove his hand, he can slowly and repeatedly see a 1-1 / 2" metal bar three times between his ring finger and middle finger. "

After five minutes, Buddy's sons, including 16-year-old Buddy Valastro Jr., were helping their father by cutting through metal bars with a saw.
If you only talk to E! On December 21, the 43-year-old TV star was optimistic that his hand could continue to improve.
"They say this healing process can take as long as nine months to a year because they have reconnected nerves and other things and you just don't know how they're going to grow," Buddy told E! News. "I think they're starting to work, but I just won't know until we're further down."
He continued, "I'm probably going to need a few more surgeries and intense physical therapy. I'm getting a lot back of what I've lost, but I don't know if I'll be 60 percent, 80 percent, 90 percent, hopefully." 100 percent. "
And while the future looks unpredictable, Buddy said his viewers and fans alike motivate him to keep fighting and know that this is not the end of his career.
"I was really optimistic," he said. "The fans and my family were so good, cheered and supported me. They gave me the love they gave me. It made me do more. It pushes me to get better."
Buddy Valastro: Road to Recovery will air on Wednesday December 23 at 9:00 p.m. on DC.
