Monday, April 20
Hello to all! I called Carson and Cody this evening, and they said that they had a good day at school. The dressing on Clay's face was taken all the way down this morning. His grafts looked really good and had adhered well. He is still pretty swollen from surgery. He stayed on the paralytic till about 4:30 this afternoon. There were a few issues with his oxygen level during wound care. His stats went down when he was turned to his side. This was all resolved and his stats went back up. He will be kept on the respirator through the night as well. This is necessary as he wakes up and begins to breathe on his own. They will gradually wean him off of the respirator throughout the night. During our last two visits, he was beginning to move some. He was able to open his swollen eyes, a little, when he heard our voices. We trust that God will comfort him and keep him as he becomes more alert tonight. We send our sincere thanks to all of you!
