Zach Rowe, shown here with his mother, Michelle Peters, is now in a rehabilitation program at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose.

Zach Rowe has left Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, Calif., and is now in a rehabilitation program at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose.

Zach's right leg was amputated soon after a tree fell on his tent in late July during a family camping trip in California.

"It's a very busy program and Zach is progressing day by day," said Michelle Peters, Zach's mother. "He still has some upcoming surgery and some unresolved medical issues, but they are taking it one thing at a time."

Zach, who would have started seventh grade at Prescott Mile High Middle School this year, is spending more time in a wheelchair, building tolerance for more than an hour at a time, because getting him mobile is a priority, Peters said.

"They are working on a special cushion for him to sit comfortably. His left leg is still extremely weak and painful," Peters said. "It's a tough road, and the marathon continues."
