Pls pray for Eric, he is doing horribly this morning. We need all of you to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. #ERIC (cont'd..) Eric is surrounded by a team of doctors right now. Kidney, pulmonary and his CT surgeons (cont'd..) We just finished going over some paperwork with the doctors for Eric. They are going to take him in for an emergency VAD surgery. They are (cont'd..) Prepping him now. I will let you know when he goes in. Please keep praying for #ERIC.

Veronica De La Cruz tweets on from web
Finally made it to my laptop. Tried to update earlier but Twitterberry would not work because it said Twitter was overcapacity. Right now I (cont'd..) think both me and Mom feel pretty numb. We've kind of been going through the motions since they took Eric in for surgery. He is surrounded (cont'd..) by a pretty good team of doctors and knew exactly what was going on when they took him. We all had to sign a bunch of consent forms together (cont'd..) so we are all aware of the risks involved. Basically -- Eric got really sick overnight. He wasnt doing very well when we came in this AM (cont'd..) and was saying he wasnt going to make it. The head of the transplant center had put a phone call in to me and suddenly Eric was being (cont'd..) paid visits from every doctor there -- pulmonary, kidney, all the CT surgeons etc...etc....they decided that putting in a VAD would be the (cont'd..) wisest decision to help his failing organs and to get him to transplant. It was becoming clear that Eric could not wait any longer even tho (cont'd..) it is harder to go from an implant device to transplant and there are more risks involved. They have to give Eric a Bi-Vad because of the (cont'd..) condition his heart is in. Normally they do an LVAD -- which they would attach only to the left ventricle, but in Eric's case they have to (cont'd..) do both left and right ventricles. Mom and I are really nervous because any way you look at it, it's open heart surgery and there are many (cont'd..) risks involved so I think we are both scared. Eric was being a trooper before he went in. He was scared too so I put on a relaxation cd. He (cont'd..) wasn't having any of it. Especially the part where it said to relax and pretend you are on a beach. He gave me a dirty look so I took it (cont'd..) off (just trying to help). I asked him if I should play some music and he said yes, so I opened up my iTunes and looked for stuff that might (cont'd..) be calming....something he would like. I ended up playing Thievery Corporation and that seemed to do the trick. He was starting to relax. (cont'd..) When I played Lebanese Blonde he even bobbed his head a little so we were all relieved. Eventually he fell asleep, which was the best (cont'd..) possible thing that could happen. The doctors were happy because he hadn't eaten for 3 days - so there was nothing in his stomach. They felt (cont'd..) it was a good time to do this surgery. They told us the first incision would take place around 6 local time. They also told us to go home (cont'd..) because they felt like it would be a pretty long process. We are going to head back to the hospital around midnight.We've been lucky because (cont'd..) Michele, who works with Trent, has been with us to make sure that we are eating etc...Mom and I have been like zombies. Noelle, Eric's ex is (cont'd..) still here too. Before Eric went in he gave us a thumbs up and mouthed "I LOVE YOU" to all three of us. We promised him we would see him (cont'd..) as soon as he was finished. They told us when he comes out he will be on a ventilator and unable to speak to us. We are just praying now (cont'd..) that everything goes well. I have utter confidence in all the doctors and the team that he is with. Eric has quite a fan base around the (cont'd..) hospital. They all really like him, so I am sure they will take good care of him. Now it's just a waiting game.....Pls keep praying. XO#ERIC

Great news, hospital just called and said SO FAR, SO GOOD! We have a few more hours to go. The transplant coordinator who called us was in (cont'd..) very good spirits & even made a joke -- she laughed & said "hopefully he wakes up smarter & nicer".;) We r feeling pretty good right now.
