Prayers for Micah

On Thursday November 10th, despite his parents' best intentions, 4-year-old Micah Zahringer found a firearm, presumed to be unloaded and shot himself in their home. He suffered major head trauma and was taken by ambulance to Aspirus Langlade Hospital. From there he was air lifted to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in Marshfield and was immediately taken into surgery. The doctors told the family that he may not make it through the surgery but by God's grace he did. After surgery they were told he had lost a lot of blood and has extensive damage to the right side of his brain, and he would likely need at least 2 more surgeries. 
 He is in the Pediatric ICU and is sedated to keep him from moving, so as not to further his injuries. Micah's vitals have been recently steady, which is really good news. The doctor is planning to do a CT scan, but is waiting to let Micah rest unless they see something that they cannot explain. 

 We are also asking for people to be praying during this difficult time. Pray for healing for Micah, pray for comfort for Matt, Jaci, Ben, Jacob, Timothy and Ian, and pray for wisdom for the doctors to make the best medical decisions that will help Micah heal. We also want to thank everyone who has already offered their assistance and has donated their time, money and meals. A CaringBridge website has been set up for continuing updates, in an effort to allow the family to focus on each other and just make it through daily living.
