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!
