Welcome to our CaringBridge 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.

Wednesday morning Zach began having cluster seizures and medication did not have an affect. Mom and Dad began CPR when they were not able to find a pulse. Little Falls Responders arrived and were able to find a faint pulse and administered additional seizure medication. Zach went into cardiac arrest and responders began CPR and continued for an hour. Zach was air lifted to Children’s Hospital where he is currently receiving comfort care. He is currently on life support. Medications are keeping his heart pumping and ventilators are needed for breathing. All vital organs have minimal to no function. As of Thursday there was minimal response to pain on the upper portion of his body.
