Clay made it through the day today with no problems. He is scheduled to have the first of many surgeries on Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. It will be a surgery to do skin grafts on his back. The whole procedure will be done with him lying on his stomach. We are told that any surgery done to the torso area cannot have a tournequet (sp?...I cannot think of how to spell it correctly!) so there will be a significant amount of bleeding. This is why the blood donations are so important! If he makes it through this surgery without any huge setbacks then they will do a tracheotomy and maybe some more skin grafts on his arm and shoulder on Friday morning.
Chance and Deidra want everyone to know how much they appreciate the outpouring of support from everyone! They cannot say thanks enough. Thanks for everyone's kindness, love, prayers, thoughts, emotional support, hugs, tears, calls, visits, and all that has been brought to the hospital. Thanks to those of you in the Olney area that are doing things to help out at the house: feeding the livestock, taking care of the boys, etc. They are so lucky to have a wide group of wonderful people willing to give their all to help. Hugs to all of you and pray that all goes smoothly!
