Taraneh Momeni Kuric, his wife, also provided an update, saying: “Thank you guys so much for your prayers!!! As of now surgery went well! Of course it’s really soon as they will be monitoring him very closely the next few days and we should have more definitive results within 4-5 days. We are waiting to see him now! Please continue those good vibes and prayers!”

Taraneh had posted a pre-operation message on Facebook Thursday morning prior to the brain surgery, thanking friends and family for all the support being sent their way:

Reading all your messages means more than you guys could imagine. Kyle was taken back to be prepped for surgery about 30 mins ago. They estimate the surgery to take 4-6 hours. Please pray and send positive energy for my love, for the surgical team, and for my family so that we all get through this.

The message also included a photo of Kyle with Taraneh and the twins prior to the operation at a health care facility in Barcelona, Spain.
