Welcome to our Caring Bridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.  Last night, June 25, 2018, David Dibble, 18, was with his brothers Wisconsin Wave Baseball team practicing at Indian Trails Academy.  While pitching to another player, he collapsed.  His younger brother Alex was on the field at the time and saw him go down.  The team thought he was playing around (the humorous man he is) but Coach Zach ran out knowing this was not the case.  Alex immediately called 911 while Coach began CPR until the Ambulance arrived.  Alex had his first (& only!) back seat squad car drive following his brother in the ambulance.  The paramedics needed to resuscitate again on the way to the hospital.  He arrived at Aurora with the baseball family following right behind.  As Davids Grandparents and parents arrived at the hospital, the decision was made to transfer him to St. Lukes in Milwaukee via Helicopter as soon as possible for more urgent and better care.  We watched as the helicopter landed and safely brought him to get settled in.  They cooled his body and are currently keeping him stable.    He will not be awake for a few days, has a lot of IV's in him,  all organs are said to be looking good right now.  We are truly thankful for Coach Zachs quick CPR on him.   We will continue to keep everyone updated on this site.  Davids first hospital visit in the ICU had a hallway full of friends and family with the doctors updating all of us as well as possible.  Coach Mark, Coach Zach, Coach Eugene and all the support of friends and family that our Dibble Boys have had within these last 24 hours keep us positive and hopeful that he will come out of all this fighting stronger than ever.  We are grateful to all of you and please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers for Davids recovery to play ball again very soon.
