“Dancing With the Stars” judge Derek Hough shared an update on Friday after his wife had emergency brain surgery.
Hayley Erbert, 28, is “now on a long road to recovery” after she had brain surgery last week. Erbert was hospitalized after she became “disoriented” after a performance in Washington D.C., according to Billboard. It was part of “A Symphony of Dance” tour.
Erbert was taken to the hospital and was later diagnosed with “cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel and required an emergency craniotomy,” according to Billboard.
“An intracranial hematoma is a collection of blood within the skull. It’s usually caused by a blood vessel that bursts in the brain,” Mayo Clinic said, according to CNN.
The Mayo Clinic says that an intracranial hematoma can come from an accident or a fall. “The blood may collect in the brain tissue or underneath the skull, pressing on the brain,” CNN reported.
“Hayley has always inspired me with her will, her strength, and her resilience and no more so than in the last 48 hrs,” Hough said on Instagram. “She is now on the long road of recovery.”
“At the end of last night’s tout performance in Washington, D.C., my wife Hayley became disoriented and was taken to the hospital,” he said in a statement on Instagram, according to CNN. “She was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel and required an emergency craniectomy. She is in stable condition.”
