Friday March 13
Hello everyone. Clay had a pretty good day except for the fact that he was a little over medicated and slept all afternoon. We are not sure if it was the medication during his dressing change or the cool rain, and overcast day but he was nearly impossible to wake up this evening. I am looking at the sleep as a good chance for his body to recover. We had several new visitors today. Clay's uncle Grady flew in from Santiago, Chile this morning and was able to sing him a hymn during the 8:00 a.m. visit. Clay appreciated his uncle's voice much more than Dad's. The childlife specialist took Carson to Clay's room today. Carson was able to be with Clay and read him a book. Cody may get to read Clay a book this next week (Spring Break). The childlife specialist will decide if Cody can go in or not. Mom, Grandma, Granny, and Cody all arrived this afternoon. We are also glad to see Jenae, Whitney, and Westin all the way from Indiana. Clay was scheduled for a test with the speech therapist to see if he could swallow and start on some pleasure foods. She showed up this afternoon and Clay would not wake up enough to participate in the test so it has been rescheduled for Monday. We appreciate everyone who has come to visit. Deidra and I know it takes a lot of time and effort to come and we are thankful so many have been willing. We also appreciate all of the thoughtful cards and letters that have continually arrived since the accident. We don't want to be redundant but once again thank you all for your kindness and prayers. I would like to wish everyone a good weekend and goodnight.
