The Eric Update

Here is the latest update on Eric.  They are planning on doing surgery on him on Fri.  As long as everything goes according to plan.  His blood clot is still there but it’s very small.  They are going to do it because of the headaches and nausea he’s having.  Also, it has something to do with scar tissue.  If this were ever to happen again and they let it dissolve on it’s own, there would be scar tissue.

His spirits are very good with his wife with him now and the outlook is very good. The neurosurgeon has said it’s very low risk surgery.

So please everyone, one more prayer. His dad, Darryl, reads him these posts and he’s very thankful for all of our fond wishes.

    Dear Eric,

    I know you are scared right now, but I want you to know that I have personally survived 18 brain surgeries in the past 10 years. That doesn’t include other surgeries I have had. Mine were far more invasive than the one you are about to have.

    Remember it is all about attitude. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do. You know in your heart and mind that you can do anything you want if you want it enough.

    You have alot of people praying for you, and although we have never met, I am one of them.

    Sending you a hug and good thoughts for your surgery.

    Good luck Eric, we love you and know you will be fine. Jason is at work but he’s been saying this whole time that he knew you’d be just fine…you’re Eric, you have to be. Bailey misses you and wants to know all about what Germany looked like, so when you get better we’ll sit down and chat on the phone. We love you very much!!
