‘2 steps forward, 1 step back’: Family members provide an update on Herrera’s condition

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Monday, on Mario Herrera’s Care Bridge page, his loved ones posted yet another update on his conditions. They say he continues to have “his ups and downs… However, he is still fighting.”

Investigator Herrera has undergone multiple abdominal surgeries after suffering a gunshot wound while on duty. As of now, he remains in critical condition. The doctors told the family “patients often take 2 steps forward and 1 step back.  The backwards steps are hard.”

Herrera’s family maintains they are “blown away by worldwide support” as groups as far away from Israel are sending their prayers. They ask for the continued support of the community as Herrera continues to fight for his life.
