Hello to all! We hope you all had a good day. Clay has spent his day coughing up secretions from his lungs. They are also frequently suctioning his trach tube. When he coughs, he gags and up come the gastric juices from the stomach. He is worn out from all this vomiting. He is and has been on several different antinausea medicines. His blood pressure, oxygen level, heart rate, and temperature are all stable and look good.
Clay's occupational therapist made him a new mouth splint. This will help stretch his lips and help him open his mouth better. She also brought some fun toys in for his therapy. The physical therapist helped him exercise his legs while he sat in his chair. Kermit walked to Clay's room and they waved to each other. We hope he gets some rest tonight. We are thankful for God's healing and we are thankful again for all who are taking care of Clay in the ICU. Hugs and thanks to you all! We are thankful for all your heartfelt prayers!
