Saturday, May 2nd
Hello to all. Sorry for the late post tonight. Clay had a pretty good day. He played several games with his occupational therapist. He has a new set of magnets that he really enjoys. He and I had a couple of serious fights with his toy dinosaurs. His always seemed to win. Mandy his physical therapist rotated out of the burn unit today. She had helped Clay through several steps and will be missed. She walked him to the window and back for the last time. Clay was told if he walked to the window he could come back to his room and sit down. He went straight to the window and skipped his usual rest and turned and raced back to his room as fast as his weak little legs would carry him. He knows the faster he gets it over with the less pain he has to endure. Deidra visited with the O.T. who told us that they had taken more of the fingers than we had thought. This was disappointing, but he will overcome the loss. Today was the 100 year centennial celebration for our home town of Olney. A coworker of mine had a muzzle loading rifle that was made several years ago by the Olney gun works. She donated the gun to a raffle for Clay. I purchased several tickets and put them in Carson, Cody, and Clay's name. I took a phone call as we were going in to see Clay at 5:00. The ladies that worked on the drawing wanted to let me know that Clay was the winner. When we went in and explained it to him he attempted to grin from ear to ear. His mouth is very tight and his smile are precious. Thank you to everyone in Olney and elsewhere that have helped the Fites and Clay. Please know we will be eternally grateful. I would like to wish everyone a pleasant and relaxing Sunday. Good night.
