I don’t even know where to start except to say thank you again to everyone for all the support through this journey. We are so eternally grateful for everything!

I saw Zach today and he is looking SO good and making so much progress!! He is getting so much stronger and it is so awesome to see! Today Zach got to eat food!! He can only have soft foods and things that can be cut up very small but it is food!! This is a very exciting next step! He has also upgraded to a normal wheelchair! He had been using one with added back and neck support but he is getting stronger and no longer needs the added back and neck support which is amazing!! Zach is working at talking, his voice is very quiet and speech is difficult but he is trying and there has been small improvements with talking!

Zach had an appointment at U of M on Monday and he got pretty good reports. His wound is healing well, it is almost closed completely on its own. We are so thankful he did not need any skin grafts for this. He has to go back in April for another checkup.

We are so thankful for the progress that Zach is making and we continue to pray for progress and healing in the coming weeks! Zach does get frustrated with things at times so please pray that he can channel that frustration into motivation towards continued improvement! Also prayers that eating will go well and his neck/throat muscles continue to get stronger so he can eat normal food safely!  Prayers for continued patience, understanding, and knowledge for us and Zach as we continue to navigate through this journey as it can be overwhelming at times but we always want what is best for Zach.


I know I have posted this verse before but it is SO incredibly true! Philippians 4:13 “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

God is good, all the time! All the time, God is good!!
