Former UofL Basketball player Kyle Kuric underwent two brain surgeries last weekend. The second was after to alleviate swelling in the brain that resulted form the first surgery which removed a tumor.

Kuric remains in critical condition, but a message from his father has given new hope to his recovery.

From Steve Kuric:

‘Well today has been a calmer day for Kyle. He has improved some since yesterday’s surgery. Kyle’s surgeon has been in to see him twice today and he is more optimistic with the situation today. Caution is still present, however, as Kyle is still critical as he requires intensive medical treatment and ventilator support. The medical team will continue close observation over the next couple of days. We are extremely grateful for the care that Kyle has received here at the hospital. We have more faith that Kyle will get better. We are humbled by all of the overwhelming support and love for Kyle. Please continue praying for him. Thank you all so very much.’

Kyle Kuric went to a Barcelona hospital for a migraine headache when the tumor was discovered. Kyle has been in Barcelona playing for the Spanish Gran Canaria club.
