Good evening to everyone! I (DeeDee) am going to post the blog before our last visit this evening while I can use the RMH computer. For some reason, I was not able to connect to the Internet on my computer last night, and it was too late to use this RMH computer. It was a pretty quiet day in BICU today because Clay & Kermit had surgeries. When I arrived at 6:00am, Clay's nurse told me that they had already called from O.R. to prep Clay for surgery. Clay ended up being the first case to go to O.R. instead of second case. He was taken to O.R. at 7:15am. Chance arrived shortly after and was able to see Clay when he came back from O.R. Clay did not have to be placed on the respirator after surgery, and was awake when we entered his room. We had some friends visit, before lunch, and Clay was able to look at the books they brought & interact some. He has a thick dressing covering the back of his head, so he did not move much today. We know how important rest is when we are recovering. His occupational and physical therapists did not come today because of the surgery. During one visit, my mom and I were hot so we were looking for Clay's little fan. We were busy looking for it all around the room. We sat down beside Clay's bed with no luck in finding the fan. Clay pulled his little hand out from under his covers with the fan in his hand and a smile on his face. :-)
He is still sick at his stomach. He vomited 4 times throughout the night and several times today. The doctors have changed some of his medicines to see if this helps. We are on our way back to the hospital to give him a goodnight kiss. We hope you all know how much you are appreciated!
