Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Eric was in an accident late Friday evening and has suffered a severe brain injury. He was taken by ambulance to the Mayo hospital in Mankato where he underwent a craniotomy surgery to remove a blood clot and intracranial pressure. A portion of his skull was temporarily removed and will be replaced once the swelling subsides. The doctors are keeping him heavily sedated while they monitor his cranial pressure and the bleeding in his brain. The extent of long term damage is yet to be known. The next 72 hours are the most critical. The Eric that we all know and love would hate to see that we are putting this out there for everyone to see, however it will be easier for us to keep everyone updated. Please keep Eric and his family in your prayers! We will update as soon as we have more information.
