Just a quick update here this morning. Clay went in for his first skin grafts this morning about 9:45 (Central). They expect him to be in there until early afternoon. We'll update the status at that point, based on the reports from the doctors.
Clay's family was able to see him this morning before surgery. One little bit of good news: when they unwrapped the bandages from his body, they found that some of the skin was in much better shape than they expected - especially on his arms. This was encouraging for both the doctors and the parents! Most of the injury is on his head, chest and back and he will still have to undergo extensive grafts in those areas - but we're thankful for any good news at this point.
All for now, thank you all SO MUCH for the love, thoughts and prayers. They mean more than we can ever express!
