Friday, April 10
Hello to all! Sorry for the late posting tonight. Clay was asleep during all our visits today, except one. At our 11:00am visit, we walked into Clay's room and saw Easter eggs hidden. The childlife specialist had brought some eggs for Kermit & Clay. They each hunted eggs in their rooms. Clay was on his back, and when we sat him up he spotted the eggs. He wanted off the bed to go get them. Mandy (Physical therapist) held him under one arm, and I held the other arm. He was able to get the ones that were at his level. When he spotted one down low, he would move his eyes toward it and we would pick it up for him. We sat him in a big chair and opened his eggs. We sat the toys on a table in front of him and asked what he wanted to play with. He did not play with any of the toys because he was fast asleep. The little bit of walking wore him out. He slept the rest of the afternoon and was still asleep during our last visit. A few times he motioned for us to fan him but fell back to sleep. There is another 5 yr. old in the burn unit. He has a room between Kermit and Clay. It was quiet in their rooms this afternoon while they were all taking a nap. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks to all of you!
