That's what Moses has been doing a lot of since his surgery yesterday. I have many people asking for updates. Thank you all for praying for him.

Our praise is that his surgery went really well. The doctors were happy with how it turned out. Now it's just time for some rest and healing. His pain medicine seems to be working and he is able to sleep. It's pretty bad when you are in pain and it's not time for your next dose of medicine. I'm glad we have not had that so far.

Moses was very excited yesterday after the surgery when he was able to see his hand straight for the first time ever. After he heals from the surgery, they will begin therapy on his arm. It's going to be a lot of work and pain, but we are all hoping he will be able to use that hand better.

As for now, all he wants to do is sleep and watch Tom & Jerry. He's not much of a tv person, but he isn't up for games and reading yet. Hopefully, he will start feeling better soon and will be ready to do something so he doesn't get so bored with dvd's.

Please continue to pray for quick and proper healing and as little pain for him as possible. He's such a sweet kid and is going through a lot. I know he is also missing home and the people he loves there.

Thank you all for your many prayers!

Karen - Thanks for lifting Moses up! I love how we start caring for people we don't even know when we start praying for them. God is good! I will keep updating.
