Tuesday, March 3
Today was a rather quiet day in Clay's room. During our early morning visit, we said good morning to Clay and he started crying and reached for us. We were able to console him and he went back to sleep. Clay has been breathing, without the help of the respirator, since 3:00am (18 hours today on his own). Clay seemed to be sleeping well during most of our visits today. The physical & occupational therapist worked with him between visiting hours. The nurse took her time with his wound care this morning (2 hrs). By the time we stepped into his room at 11:00am, he had fresh gauze (dressing) on and was sleeping. We exercised his fingers during one visiting hour. Otherwise, we tried not to disturb him much today. He had a busy day yesterday and with surgery tomorrow, the downtime was welcome today. His surgery is scheduled for the 2nd surgery of the day. Thanks again for prayers & thoughts that are sent our way. Good night, sleep tight (this is what we say to Clay each night).
