We hope you all had a nice Sunday. Clay was awake for most of the day. He sat in his wagon for a few hours and at the 2:00 visit, he got to sit in Dad's lap. Dad lifted him out of bed after all his tubes, etc. were disconnected. His nurse connected them back once Clay was in Chance's lap. He placed his feet in my lap. I read some books and then used the books to fan Clay. He was sleepy during the 5:00 visit. Uncle Justin & I read him a few books. He was sound asleep by the time this visit was over. He was still in a deep sleep during our 7:30 visit. Clay seemed sad today during our visits. I mentioned this to our nurse, and she had noticed it too. Our nurse helped Clay with his hand therapy today. He was able to bend his fingers further into a fist after she worked with him. She also worked with him on his mouth exercises. Chance had to head back home this afternoon to be with Carson & Cody and to go to work. Carson & Cody spent an enjoyable weekend with some close friends (the Smith's in Seymour). My heart yearns to be with all three boys together again. Thank you for your continued prayers and support. We truly appreciate your kindness.
