Dear Friends,

Zacharias is doing very well. Yesterday and today he has been playful and happy although today he has been a little cranky :) He has learned how to balance out the heavy cast that he has on his arm and he is toddling around quite well and really seems just like his old self.

We can't really see his fingers because of the cast so we are not really sure what is going on there. He is running and has been running (since Wednesday evening) a temperature not a really high temperature but enough to concern us. One of the side effects of the medication that they had him on is constipation so that is hard and we are a little concerned that he has not been going as much as we would like. We have been giving him yogurt and stuff trying to get his little digestive system to kick into high gear.

They gave him massive anti-biotics in the hospital but did not give him any to take home so part of our concern over his temperature is possible infection.

We relish your prayers. Mom and I are having a hard time.

Please pray that his fingers will heal so that on Tuesday when we go to see the surgeons again that they will not need to amputate the finger tips. Please pray that his temperature will not climb and that there will be no problems with infections or any illnesses that can be caused by the wound or the hospital stay.

I hate to even ask but if anyone lives close to us, I could use someone to help out with Micah so Mama can spend time with Zacharias or sleep or whatever. I am more that will to pay for this, so if some responsible teenage girl wants to make a little (very little :)> ) money that would be great. A couple of faithful women and their daughters have already helped us and we so appreciate that. what would be really great is if we could get someone to take a night shift with him. He is sleeping through the night pretty well but Mama cannot get restful sleep because she worries about him.

We are so very thankful that the Lord Jesus spared him from further injury. It could have been much, much worse. The Lord is very faithful and I know that he is working an eternal work in us through this time. I praise the Lord for His goodness and mercy. I know that this will draw us closer to Him. I pray that he will build our faith.

Praise God for His mercy and grace,

Jeremy Bowen
