In the middle of an amazing Labor Day weekend at the cabin with friends, Kirk suffered a serious jet ski accident on Sunday, September 2.

He was evacuated off Lake Chetac on his boat, then had 2 ambulance rides (thank you to Birchwood rescue).  When he arrived at Rice Lake hospital a CT scan revealed a ruptured artery in his abdomen.

Kirk was medflighted via helicopter to Mayo - Luther hospital in Eau Claire.  He is there now in critical care supported by Megan, his family and dear friends.

Edit: on Wednesday he was transferred to Mayo Rochester - St Mary’s campus and on Saturday was transferred out of the ICU to the Trauma floor. Progress!
