Derek Hough is giving an update on his wife, Hayley Erbert, after she was hospitalized for a cranial hematoma earlier this week.
“Hayley has always inspired me with her strength, her resilience and no more so than in the last 48 hours,” Hough, 38, wrote via Instagram on Friday, December 8. “She is now on the long road to recovery. Words cannot express how grateful and thankful we are for the support and love that you have given us. The kindness that we’ve been shown in this incredibly unfathomable and life changing time is immovable.”
The Dancing With the Stars judge, who tied the knot with Erbert, 29, in August, added that the “offers of assistance” their family has been given in the past days have been “so humbling and appreciated.” He concluded, “Our hope is that as a family, we can start somehow and someway pay it forward.”
Hough initially took to Instagram on Thursday, December 7, to share that Erbert had been rushed to the hospital after becoming “disoriented” following a tour performance.
“She was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel and required an emergency craniectomy,” he explained, before asking for “prayers and positivity” during this difficult time.
Hough also noted that Erbert was in “stable condition” thanks to the first responders and medical professionals who provided care for his wife.
