How quickly life can change in a moment's time. Samuel was enjoying a weekend camping outing with friends and on Sunday (8-13-17) he collapsed. We thank God for the fast acts of Chad, Grace & Andrew Tangen, who started immediate CPR. The first responders and Sheriff's deputy and ambulance crew also played a huge role in the fact that Sam is alive. His heart has some damage but it's been beating strong on its own since receiving 2 life savings shocks from AEDs. He was airlifted to Fargo and then fixed wing to Mayo in Rochester where his life was saved the first time by surgery at 6 months old. The plan @ Mayo is to place an automated internal defibrillator to shock his heart in the future if it needs it. We have activated many "prayer warriors" and would so appreciate your continued prayers of healing, love & support. We have faith in God's Grace and provision for Sam.
