Yesterday was a difficult day for me, today is full of small but good news. I’m feeling good about this now, I have no doubt that Eric will pull this off.

10:45 am – Eric’s Neurosurgeon checked in on Eric. He looked at Eric with surprise and said: What? Are you awake? Eric can you hear me? And guess what….Eric moved his finger!!! I honestly never thought I could be happier. Yep, Eric is with us still, fighting like the stubborn Eric we know. The doctor gave me his thumb up, said this is good, and they walked away.

In the afternoon another little change happened. The doctor lowered the pressure from the “breathing machine” to see if he could breathe on his own. Of course he could 🙂 He’s also off the sedation completely so within a day he actually might wake up!



  1. That is fantastic news. We will continue to send love and good thoughts to you both. By the way, I was reading a biking-site blog- you and Eric have a ton of support out there!

  2. Cheers- Good thoughts and prayers coming from the Prizer Family.

  3. This is so wonderful. You are in our thoughts and prayers all the time, and we just know Eric is a fighter! Sending so much love your way…
