Saturday, May 30th
Good evening, we apologize for the skip. It was not intentional, just exhaustion. The Fite family had a big day on Clay's behalf. Adventure Boot Camp in Carrollton sponsored a 5K run to benefit Clay. A lady that is a friend of the family organized most of the event, (Thanks Callie). There were several sponsors and many participants that ran on Clay's behalf. We appreciate everyone who helped or ran. Carson and Cody were the starters for the race and they enjoyed the opportunity to help out. This is Dad and I spent last night and today with Clay. He had a fairly restful night and a busy day. He has started eating like a horse and tonight he told me, " This spaghetti is delicious." Big words from a boy who hasn't spoken in over 100 days. He walked quite a bit and spent some time in the hall visiting with several family members. I think he enjoyed being the center of attention. We are hoping he continues to progress at the pace he has set for himself. It amazes us that his strength is returning so rapidly. We know it is the thoughts, prayers, and love of all that are assisting him in his recovery. He will have several rehab sessions in his future, but we will help him work his way through them. We wish everyone a restful and blessed Sunday. Good Night.
