Final Update

I checked in with Jen to see how Zac is doing. It has been a week since his surgery to put back the bone in the skull. According to Jen, Zac is doing well, the swelling has gone down, and the dizziness has subsided. Thank you God! It is now a matter of retraining the brain. Long road to recovery but I believe that Zac is a fighter. He will get there, in God’s time, he’ll be back to normal.

Thank you to all of you who prayed with me. Zac’s battle is not quite done. He will have lots of bridges to cross before he gets to his goal. Just like his most loved sports, soccer, there will be many games where the team can’t make the goal. But it doesn’t mean it’s time to give up. Players continue to fight until victory is achieved.

I will continue praying. I hope you do too. Thank you.

Friend in Need Update

I recently heard from my friend Jen about Zac’s condition. He is doing very well with his recovery at home. He will have another surgery for the doctors to put the bone back into his skull the later part of this month. So let’s all pray for that. Otherwise, everything is good.

Jen thanks all of us for all the donations, the well wishes and most of all, the prayers. Let’s continue praying for fast recovery and healing.

So thank you all so much for all your support and prayers.

Book – The Hunger Games

It’s been a long time since I’ve read (and finished) a good book. Thanks to the recommendation of my friend and co-worker, Caitlin (and also for lending me Books 1 – 3), I finally finished Book 1.

I’ve been extremely busy for the last 5 years that I have not touched a book the whole entire time. I have attempted to read Twilight but ran out of time with my local library and had to return the book.

With The Hunger Games, I really had to plan and manage my time so that I’d be able to finish it. It took several weeks but I did it. My family went to Taholah beach  just this last Saturday and that’s when I planned to finish the book. However, I got to one of the most exciting parts where one of the characters die and I could not go on reading. I was so sad and affected. I’ve been so attached to the story that when I got to that part, I can’t believe I could not go on. I had to put the book down. Caitlin reminded me that it only gets better after that. So the following day, I continued to read and finally finished.

This book is so good you don’t want to stop reading it. I’ve also been watching the trailer and new scenes keep popping up on the Internet. That’s why I’m so happy that I’m done so I can watch all these scenes in the upcoming movie. I can’t wait for the movie!

Great job Suzanne Collins.

Fundraising Potluck

We planned a potluck for the end of June as sort of culmination to the Zac’s rehab fundraising. I am happy to announce that, our firm paid for the cover charge ($5 per person). AND, in addition, added an undisclosed amount to Zac’s rehab fund.  We had a feast! Lots and lots of food. Thank you to everyone who participated by bringing dishes and to all who came and enjoyed the feast.  It does have a great feeling knowing that you are surrounded by people who care.
