It’s the worst news that a person can get about someone they love. Derek Hough just revealed to fans that his beloved wife Hayley Erbert was hospitalized after experiencing some scary symptoms while they’re on their Symphony of Dance tour – and it required she have brain surgery!
On Thursday December 7, the Dancing with the Stars judge, 38, announced on his Instagram that his wife was rushed into emergency surgery and was being treated for a cranial hematoma. “At the end of last night’s tour performance in Washington, D.C., my wife Hayley became disoriented and was taken to the hospital,” he wrote. “She was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel and required an emergency craniectomy. She is in stable condition.”
A cranial hematoma is when blood collects in the skull and although we don’t know how the condition developed for Derek’s beloved, it’s good news indeed to hear that she’s stable under terrifying circumstances.
“I want to thank the first responders and medical personnel who have cared for and continue to care for her. I ask for your prayers and positivity during this time,” he added.
A trying moment for the newlyweds, who just this summer got married on August 26, just before their tour kicked off in late September. Shortly after posting about the news, fellow DWTS fam members like Jenna Johnson, Peta Murgatroyd, and Ariana Madix were sending their love to the pair.
Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery, Hayley!
