Zach Gabbard returns to Perham

Perham junior basketball player Zach Gabbard has returned to Perham after more than two months of being hospitalized in the Twin Cities, according to a post on his CaringBridge website.

Gabbard collapsed from cardiac arrest during a basketball game on Jan. 20 and has since undergone several heart surgeries.

The post on the CaringBridge website said that Gabbard and his family "made a surprise entrance into the middle school during the Spring Fling tournament and received a very warm welcome. [Zach] gets to sleep in his own bed for two nights and on Monday will be admitted into the transitional rehab unit in the Perham Hospital."
