TUESDAY, JUNE 3 (day 23)

Eric had a MRI today to see details over his brain and his knee and we should get the result back tomorrow. The doctor sedated him prior to the MRI. Think about it…he’s been heavily sedated for two back surgeries, three days ago he had a Bronchoscope which Eric got sedated for as well, and today a MRI. Add a bruised up body and broken ribs on top of that, plus a brain injury. Would it be easy for you to wake up out of that? No wonder he’s not responding yet. I’ll patiently wait by his side until he’s ready.

Not all of you have met Eric, but for the once who have, I think you’ll get a laugh out of this. I think it’s important to remember to laugh too, no matter how difficult the situation is. Eric’s hair is super curly by nature; we’re talking corkscrew hair by nature. They doctor had to shave his hair for one of the many tests so he’s currently bald. Which is why it was funny when my neighbor yesterday said, “How’s Eric going to deal with the hair now? He won’t be able to get his perm done while he’s at the hospital.” Perm?? Gezzz, this isn’t the ‘80 anymore. Oh man, if Eric only knew that our neighbor for all these years thought he had his hair permed. Too funny! I can’t wait to tell him.



  1. Loved the story about Eric’s hair! Thanks for the laugh! 🙂

  2. We will be up to see you both on Thursday. You are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. Suzanne will also be back this weekend. Greg will also be in again soon. We love you both and know that we are here for you!!! I wish that I had just a little of Eric’s curly hair!!!

  3. Oh man, he would freak out! That is too good. He will get a kick out of that when he wakes up and hears that story!

  4. Would that be the gay neighbour by any chance?

    Still thinking of you guys…..

    Stay strong Anna Carin.

    Love Paul

  5. We’ve known Eric since he was a little boy. Having his hair permed…what a laugh!! You are right, ACE, every once in a while a good laugh just clears the heavy air. Hang in there! As soon as they stop snowing him…he’ll be back.

  6. So they shaved it all off?!!! Like you said to me before, it’s what he always wanted. So once again be careful what you ask for, for you may get it…huh! 😉
    Although, I have a feeling Eric would have loved the “Monk” hairdo he had a couple weeks ago. Now that was cool! Never seen a curly Monk do before.

    Ace I love you both very much and can’t wait to come back down to be with both of you! You truly are a strong woman and an inspiration to all!

    Lots of love!

  7. Wake up Curly!! You wanted your hair this way.. so wake up and see it!! Hurry up before it all grows back!!

  8. Great attitude ACE! Always remember to laugh, especially when life is rough. I know Eric would want to make sure you’re OK while going through this difficult time. I look forward to hearing about the MRI results. See you both Friday.

    Lots of love!

  9. Anna Carin you and Eric are in my prayers daily – As for the new hairdo I just shaved my head this morning tell Eric welcome to the hair club for men…lots of laughs here.


  10. We don’t know each other but I am a friend of Karen Steiner and Eric’s story greatly moved me. I continue to pray for Eric and all of you in my frequent prayers. May you find God’s blessings with good news soon.
