 Tigard, OR
On Christmas night Oregon State Trooper Nic Cederberg (32) was shot multiple times at close range while engaging a murder suspect, who died during the confrontation.  Nic sustained life threatening injuries, and is currently in the intensive care unit at a Portland hospital.  He's undergone multiple lengthy surgeries and has a long road of recovery ahead of him.   We are also very lucky to have him still with us.

Nic's brave actions that night are no suprise to anyone that knows and loves him.  He's not the type to run from a fight and unfortunately during this fight he was hurt fairly bad.  He loves being an OSP officer and is extremely good at what he does.  He pours his heart and soul into protecting each and everyone of us, and now we are asking for you to send a little bit of that love his way.

So Nic has been home for almost two weeks now and he's doing much better physically. He had a spinal cord stimulator implanted in his back to drastically reduce the extreme nerve pain I described in my last update. The day after it was put in he was able to walk and stand as he had weeks before. Five days later they sent him home a new man with a few more bolt on parts. He still has a long road to recovery but being home and out of the hospital has helped him greatly both mentally and physically. He and Hayley spent 48 days in the hospital together as she promised him she wouldn't go home until they did it together. The picture below is of them on that day.

Today they released the body cam footage from one of the five officers who initially responded to Nic's location that night. Nic was able to meet with those officers this afternoon and see the footage before it was released. Hayley was there with him and said "Nic said one of the most comforting things when he was laying there was hearing their voices coming up with a plan, executing it without hesitation, and then tending to his wounds exactly as they had been trained. Not one second of hesitation from these guys, and their knowledge of first aid and wound packing is what ultimately saved his life."

If you've seen the video those five officers did exactly what Nic described. Without them acting decisively and fearlessly I may not have a brother here today. It is not my intention to celebrate what happened that night, but to say thank you to the five men that went in first. To Stanley Smith, Christopher Pierce, and Joseph Twigg from the Sherwood Police Department, Eli Sanders from the Tualatin Police Department and Anthony Christofaro from the Hillsboro Police Department I want to say THANK YOU.

I know it’s been a while since the last time I’ve posted an update on Nic and how he’s doing, and it has been for many reasons. Watching him accelerate through his recovery at a pace most wouldn’t believe is an awesome thing to see and be a part of. Like every journey though, there are times where you are taken far past your perceived limits and tested in ways you couldn’t imagine, both good and bad. The last time you saw Nic he was walking unassisted for a short distance and it was a huge milestone in his recovery. A few days after that he was able to navigate a simple floor obstacle course and even walk up a flight of stairs by himself, again a huge step forward. The day after he climbed those stairs his nerve pain unexpectedly grew to an intensity where he wasn’t able to get out of bed. Over the next six days his leg pain became so intense and debilitating that he needed to be transferred out of the rehab facility and back to the hospital to get a handle on the pain. I saw him yesterday afternoon for a few hours and what I saw him go through in that time crushed me emotionally. Helping him back into bed out of his wheel chair was one of those moments. It takes two to three people to assist him back into bed, one or two to help lift him and one other to carefully stabilize his lower right leg. Simply touching his leg, gently wiggling a toe and worst of all straightening it unleashes a tsunami of fire through his nerves. Yesterday I was there to help lift him back into bed. When he was ready, with a wash cloth in his mouth to bite down on, he turned a dark red and nearly bit through the fabric as we quickly and carefully moved him. Once in bed I held onto his hand allowing him to use every bit of strength to squeeze it in hopes that I could in some way take some of his pain away. As the pain started to subside slowly and the new wave of pain killers moved in, I could see him once again go into that place in his head that allows him to suffer in silence while they take effect. At that point, after watching him just go through that transfer I lost it and all I could do was cry. When he noticed the tears coming down my face I saw them well up in his eyes as well. He looked at me and said “I will get through this” and took a few deep breathes and closed his eyes. That feeling of watching him in that much pain and not being able to do anything about it was tough. Knowing that he truly believed what he said reassured me and everyone in the room that he wasn’t going to give up on us mentally. He will get through this small step back in his recovery, but right now it’s just going to take time to find out what that solution is.

Today Nic took another huge step in his recovery; actually he took twenty six steps, all by himself, with a little help from a lower leg brace. We’ve tried to document a lot of Nic’s new “firsts” and we felt that this was one that needed to be shared. On Saturday he walked (342) feet using a walker during his five physical therapy sessions. And on Thursday he walked for the very first time since the shooting. He was only able to cover about six to ten feet before taking a short break, but it was much needed progress for him and for us. What you may not know is that Nic thought his right leg was paralyzed three weeks ago. The only feeling he’s had for the last two weeks is intense pain and numbness, a pain that could only be described as having his leg wrapped in white hot metal. Simply blowing on it would send him up the pain scale to an eleven. This was all due to the extensive nerve damage he sustained on Christmas night. Today that pain has subsided enough for him to do what he didn’t think he could, and that was walk again. He’s working extremely hard to get back to what we would all call normal. In order to get there as quickly as possible he signs up for as much extra PT as the rehab facility will allow, and he always sets the bar higher the next day. Because the only way he said he is willing to go home is if he can walk through the front door on his own with Hayley right beside him.

I went by to see Nic yesterday and when I opened the door all I found was an empty hospital room. All of Nic and Hayley’s stuff was in the room but they were gone. I checked in at the nurses station and they told me they gave him free reign to roam the hospital as long as he was supervised, in a wheel chair and back before 4:00 PM. When I found them they were on the ninth floor atrium which overlooks Portland and the Willamette River. He was staring out at the landscape and at one point he made the comment that the sky looked a lot different than it had before everything happened. This was the same spot where we spent the first three days waiting for updates on his condition, spending time with loved ones and supporters, and most importantly just being there for him and each other. What many don’t know is how bad it really was that night. Most can speculate but few know what really happened, and with Nic’s permission I’m going to give you the highlights.

On that Christmas night my brother was shot twelve times at a distance no greater than twelve feet, a gun fight in a phone booth. Almost every one of his rounds, three magazine’s worth, had been fired when it was all said and done. When the shooting stopped and all went quiet Nic knew he was in serious trouble. As he lay there for a little more than two minutes by himself bleeding, he locked in mentally and found a way to survive. When the first police officers arrived he demanded they take him to the hospital in his own car as it would be faster than every other ambulance on the planet. What he didn’t know is how bad of shape he was really in, and that had they done that it would have probably killed him. What he did have with him were experienced officers who knew how to pack bullet wounds correctly and this ultimately saved Nic’s life. This wasn’t a typical shooting in that, to my knowledge, no police officer has ever taken twelve rounds at that range and lived. Of those twelve rounds that hit him, five were stopped by his bullet proof vest and the other seven struck his flesh. Those bullets hit him in both arms, the torso coming to rest in his lung and abdomen, and two hitting his spinal canal almost paralyzing him. Of the seven that hit him, four were still inside him when he arrived at the hospital. When he leaves the hospital tomorrow for the next stop in his journey he will still have one lodged in his lower spine for the rest of his life. When I said that he was “one tough hombre” I meant it, and the only reason he is still here today is someone was watching over him that night, I firmly believe it. Any one of those twelve bullets should have killed him and they didn’t.

To all of you out there holding fundraisers, sending him cards, letters, emails, balloons, hosting hellish Crossfit workouts (he hates burpees by the way), and commenting on these posts wishing him encouragement, Nic would like to say THANK YOU. He and Hayley are in absolute disbelief and truly humbled at the amount of support they are receiving on a national scale.

Hey Ryan Crutcher...how about reading this: An online charity drive seeking $100,000 has been launched to raise money for the trooper and his family. Though bills related to Cederberg's injuries will be part of a workers' compensation claim, people can donate to the family to help cover the cost of lost wages, hotel rooms and other expenses! Copied from an online post! The man served his Country as an Army Veteran and a Police Officer...it's about time his Country gave something back to him. Take your negative comments somewhere else...God Bless the Cederburg Family & Thank You Nic for your Service!

Ryan Crutcher - I am an officers wife out of SC and I want to educate you on a few facts about an injured officer. The medical bills are only a part of the big picture in this situation. What you are missing is that in most cases - the injured officer does not receive full pay while out. Additionally - most officers work side jobs to make up for their low wages so this injured officer is not able to do this. Also - officers spouses will miss work and pay in order to be by the side of their injured LEO so there is even less money. Since most households in America live paycheck to paycheck - most budgets are set up knowing the exact amounts of money coming in. So now we have an injured hero making a portion of his salary trying to heal all the while knowing that the bills are piling up and he has no way to make the additional income. I realize that you felt the need to have your voice heard and do not agree with this campaign- so just realize that while you are out making 100% of your salary today in good health and have the ability to work extra should you need to - that there is a hero lying in a hospital bed not able to do any of those things because he was out protecting neighborhoods just so you can go about your day safely.

A person just shared this message with me, thought I would pass it along "I was reading some comments on the go fund me page - you might want to educate 'Ryan Crutcher.' He makes a statement referring to all medical costs and loss of time should be covered. As a 30yr. veteran of DOC, I have had to scrape by to pay medical bills long after the incident, and the insurance of being paid while recuperating is only a percentage. The young man who commented should become a state employee to learn the facts!"

Ryan Catcher, I am a paramedic with an on the job injury. Guess what if work comp denies treatment, which they do all the time, you get the bill. You also only get a percentage of your pay and it doesn't compensate for lost overtime. I'm getting about 55% of what I was making and work comp has been denying surgery for 2 years even after 5 surgeons, including their own have told them it's 100% necessary. Nic didn't ask to be shot, he will need the money. He is a hero and a veteran and needs to be treated with much more respect. If you don't want to donate, then don't. But keep your opinion to yourself.

Hey Nic....I am a patrol Sergeant from the La Grande Police Department. Your McMinnville supervisor was my training officer (many years ago), so we share that together. Because of that - I'm following your story a little more closely and am sending good thoughts your way! Please ignore the few negative comments here on this page. They have no understanding of how WC works, or the help your family will need that will not be covered by your department. It's easy to troll, when you have the courage of a keyboard and monitor to hide behind. You are a true hero. You probably don't feel that way and are incredibly humbled by all of this - but hold your head up high. The only expectations you have to hold up to are your own. Stay strong and know that your blue family has your six! You are an inspiration for the rest of us still wearing a badge!

Ryan Crutcher, you obviously do not understand L&I and how it works...So I will try to explain in simple terms, so you might understand....L&I does not cover any hotel costs or food costs that occur when you have a loved one in the hospital, they do not pay for loss of wages for the spouse and it takes forever to pay even if the Department is Self Insured. When my husband was hurt on his Police Bike (broke his back in 3 places) we had bill collectors calling because L&I was sending checks to the wrong places and talk about stressful.......It isn't that simple, before you write a ridiculous comment like the one you posted, especially on this site for love one to see and for the thin blue line family to read, you need to educate yourself. Pffft ignorant people be gone, we don't have time for your stupidness.....Stay strong my blue family, you are loved and supported like no other...

I would like to address the lady who had some question about the need for a GoFundMe account in this situation. I can speak only for myself, but this donation I made was as much for me as it was for Trooper Cederberg. I do battle on a daily basis, on line, with those who have adopted an inaccurate perception of law enforcement and all it entails. They have been spoon fed untruths by those with a voracious agenda, and it has put our law enforcement officers, all over the country, at risk. I cannot do more than talk, discuss, try to iron out the inaccuracies and spend time on my computer doing this. Making this donation to an outstanding officer who put his very life on the line for the safety of the rest of us, was a tangible thing I could do. It was as much a statement that there are people who have HIS back in whatever way we can, and it was as great a statement of appreciation as I am able to give. I doubt the family would be enamored by my showing up at the hospital room offering to make coffee runs. So this is what I can do. It made ME feel good, and it was a positive communication of support, however small, to the Cederberg family.

My heart goes out to Nic and his family. My ex is former officer Steven Dodds who was shot 6 years ago in Lincoln City. To Ryan, shame on you. You have no idea what lies before Nic and his family, what toll this incident will take over the long term. The money allows them to not have to worry about the extra expenses that will certainly arise. It may cushion them during a period of uncertain future. If you don't want to donate, please find another charitable venue, but don't belittle the efforts of hundreds who are wanting to support someone who nearly lost their life protecting and serving the public. This is what communities do. We lift each other up. God Bless the Cederburg family.

Although it is terrible what officer Cederberg is going through, I don't see the purpose of a "Go fund me account" with a goal of 100K. Being an employee of the State Police and especially being hurt while on duty he should never see a medical bill! His pay should also not be affected regarding the incident! What am I missing here, is the 100K going to be a "Bonus" or "Reward" for being hurt while performing his sworn duty? if anybody has a sensible answer please share!!

The fund raising helps cover what is not covered by workmans comp. Alot of times it covers co pays capped at a certain amount and 1/2 salaries. Officers are highly underpaid. They do what they do out of love for people and upholding the law, not for the pay! If Trooper Cederberg needs in home care for a while, physical therapy or a friggin steak so be it. This man was doing his job yes... but in my opinion he is a hero. He put his life on the line, put himself in danger so the rest of us can be safe. He and the other officers that night were brave. So those not happy about the fundraiser shame on you. Be well Nic Cederberg and family. We are behind you 1000 percent!
