He also thanked those who have reached out amid the trying time.

“The offers of assistance that have poured in have been so humbling and appreciated. Our hope is that as a family, we can somehow and someway pay it forward,” the post concludes.

The update comes after Derek revealed that his wife was first hospitalized after feeling disoriented at the end of a performance in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 6.

He shared the news in an Instagram post on Thursday, revealing that Hayley suffered a burst blood vessel and underwent an urgent craniectomy. Thankfully, Derek assured fans that the “So You Think You Can Dance” alum is in stable condition and he went on to share gratitude for the doctors, nurses and EMTs for stepping in to help.

“I want to thank the first responders and medical personnel who have cared for and continue to care for her,” Derek wrote. “I ask for your prayers and positivity during this time.”

Derek, 38, and Hayley, 29, have been on the road for their Symphony of Dance tour in recent months. The pair got married in August after more than eight years of dating.
