The family of a Hill-Murray football player still on a ventilator after suffering a head injury in a game last Saturday is thanking the public for the support they have received over the past week.


Zach Zarembinski remains at Regions Hospital. He was transported there after complaining of a headache during the game and suffering subsequent seizures.

A Caring Bridge page set up for Zarembinski said he suffered a brain bleed on his left side. He underwent an emergency craniotomy to allow his brain to swell.

"We are so touched by the overwhelming generosity and kindness of so many who have helped our family over the last week as we pray for Zach's healing," read a post to the Caring Bridge site Friday. "Please accept our deepest gratitude for your effort, no matter how small, in helping Zach get well.  

"Your assistance helps us in so many ways that you don't even know."

The post Friday also said the pneumonia Zarembinski had been battling has cleared up, but doctors plan to wait a few more days before attempting to remove the breathing tube.
