This is Jenae filling in for DD-she is completely exhausted and can't think clearly. Let's hope she gets plenty of rest tonight!
Well, we made it through another day!
Today the nurse came in and asked Clay to give her a "high 5". He gave her a "low 5" instead. He was able to raise his whole arm, but not very high :)
Granny Martha (Jenae's mother-in-law) was in with him this morning and squeezed his foot. She said, "I...(squeeze)...love (squeeze)...you (squeeze), Clay! She then said, "Can you hear me, Clay? and his little toes went wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!
They took the bandages off the chest area today to check on the grafts that were done last Friday. It took 1 and 1/2 hrs to remove the bandages! Once removed, they discovered that the chest grafts took 80-90%. So...that was great news!
Clay was restless at one point today. Grandma Joy was in there and asked him, "Clay, do you hurt? and he shook his head, "No". Then, she asked, "Are you hot?" and he nodded, "Yes", so she fanned him with the blanket he had on him. He has run a fever off and on today. His little body is sure working overtime to heal!
When momma is in the room and telling him that she is getting all his sugar and giving him lots of kisses, he turns his head towards her. He knows his momma! :)
He is still breathing with the help of the respirator.
Clay is having surgery Wed. morning at 8 a.m. He is the only burn ICU surgery scheduled that day. The doctors will do skin grafts on his right hand and his right arm. We pray that it all goes well!
