Friday April 3rd

Hello to all. Clay had a pretty good day except for a couple of bouts with an upset stomach again. He was sleeping soundly at 6:00 this morning but when he awoke and saw his mother he indicated he was hot and needed to be fanned. The physical therapist walked him about 50 ft and he was more than ready to make the turn and head back to the room. When he arrived they let him set up in his big chair for a bit. They have changed some of his medication trying to stop the nausea. We feel like most of the problem is caused by him coughing up mucous and having a strong gag reflex. We have never seen him throw up with out coughing first. We know that everyday is a step closer to his recovery and we are trying our best to wait patiently. Thanks to everyone for your gracious encouragements on the blog and elsewhere. Wishing everyone a good night.

  2. I wanted to tell you about a sweet thing that happen tonight. For weeks I come to your blog and read about your sweet little boy. every night my 4 year old son Cole ask me about the little boy on the front page of the blog Clay. So tonight as we were in the kitchen he started talking about Clay and asking me how Clay was and if he was okay. I thought it was so sweet that he remembered about Clay and he thinks and worries about him. Cole would LOVE to send a surprise to Clay ....Could you email me your mailing info..
