Monday, April 6
Hello to all! What an emotional night & day. Our night nurse stayed in Clay's room. He pulled up a table and sat by his bed. We are thankful for all the wonderful nurses. Clay seemed to be doing better during our 8:00am visit and our 11:00am visit. At our 2:00pm visit, Clay's heart rate was fluctuating again and he was vomiting. He seems to be very restless in the bed. He seemed to constantly move his legs up and down and all around today. Four days ago they took Clay off the morphine and started giving him a new pain medicine. Poor little guy has had a rough time lately. They are going to keep him on the respirator periodically throughout each day. He is being given many different medicines right now. He is exhausted and we are exhausted just by watching. When we had to leave his room this evening, the respiratory therapist was needing to suction through his trachea tube. She could not suction until his heart rate went up. We want to thank you all for lifting us up in your prayers. We are thankful for renewed strength from God everyday. Thanks to all!
