    Hi Folks

    This morning, Brandon Smith, who is the son of Board member Cole Smith, and my long time girlfriend Beth Smith, went into Cardiac Arrest. Fortunately he was undergoing a sleep study at a local Sleep clinic for Sleep Apena and was on the center's monitors. They saw it happen right away, his heart simply just stopped about 5:30 am.

    They started CPR immediately, and it continued for over an hour via machine while he was transported to the University of MN Hospital via ambulance.

    He currently is in a coma, and is on full life support, and his body is being chilled to 93.5* to hopefully preserve brain function. They will warm him up in 24 hours and that is a critical time, according to the cardiologist we spoke to this morning.

    His prognosis is poor, but because he is only 34, we are hopeful for a complete recovery.

    Keep him in your prayers.

    That's horrible. Please let Beth know that both my Beth and I are hoping for the best.

    Hoping for the best outcome for Brandon...very scary. Sounds like he’s had a rough go health-wise the last couple years.

    Jim -- my sincerest hopes that Brandon makes a full recovery. At 34 he has too much left to give to friends and family.
