July 24

I've had a few people ask me for a medical update on Zack. He is still paralyzed from the chest down and has no movement in hands, fingers and wrists. Zack is classified as a quadriplegic. He does have movement in his shoulders and forearms and is getting some tricep/bicep strength. For instance, he can now bring the back of his hand up to his face. He has sensation down to his toes and that feeling has also gotten better. He used to not feel the shot given to him in is stomach everyday and now says he can feel it! Zack has apparently lost 33 lbs. He HATES the food here so it is making it really difficult for him to gain any weight. His spirits are still focused and positive. He's looking forward to going home soon.

Thank you for being a part in Zack's recovery. Love, Amber

  1. Amber,
    Just checking in-really appreciate the updates.
    Do you have a date yet for Zack's Home Coming?
    Is it ok to send Gift Cards to Zach for In & Out Burger etc? I am sure that is not really healthy food but is it ok? Any other suggestions
    for Zack-I hope to make a donation to his fund & will also be sending a gift card to you for you-soon.
    Love & Prayers,
