It has been a crazy past few days. Yesterday, November 13th Zach was released from the hospital! He spent a total of 17 days in the hospital. Although that seems like a long time, for having a traumatic brain injury Zach's stay in the hospital was fairly short. We were thrilled that the doctors and therapists said it would be safe for him to come home. Zach has been able to get much better rest at home. He has been resting and healing his brain. Today he went up to Hill-Murray with my parents to retrieve some items from his locker. While doing so there happened to be a pep-fest going on. Zach was able to say hi to all the students and thank them for their support. Although he is not back in school yet, the students seemed thrilled to see him! Zach will continue to have various appointments and outpatient therapy sessions until he is strong enough to slowly return to school.
Zach is living proof that love, prayers and medicine works. He is a walking miracle and we cant thank God and all the other supporters for everything they have done.
