Thank you for visiting Merrick's Caring Bridge website. We will use this site to keep you updated on Merrick and needs/prayer requests for the Bleeker family.
Merrick went to the hospital after having been ill for a few days. He was diagnosed with hemolytic uremic syndrome which has caused his kidneys to not function properly. He is now at the Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls undergoing dialysis and likely multiple blood transfusions over the next few weeks.
