Happy Mother's Day to all you special mothers! I had a special Mother's Day because I was able to be with all three boys today. I got to be with Clay during our visits and with Carson and Cody at the Ronald McDonald House. Carson and Cody were anxious to give me their sweet Mother's Day cards that they made at school. Chance went to see Clay at 6:00am while Carson, Cody, Grandma, and I slept a little longer. Chance had Clay sign a Mother's Day card and told him to hide it under a pillow until the next visit. When we arrived for the 8:00am visit, we stopped to talk to the nurses outside of Clay's room. Clay saw us and began to wave the Mother's Day card in the air. It was so sweet. He had been waiting for an hour to give me the card.
He had a restful Sunday. We went to our Sunday church meeting, and when we arrived at the 11:00 visit, he was sitting in his chair. He sat his chair for a few hours and then was moved back to his comfortable air bed. He took a few sips of apple juice this afternoon. He was rubbing his stomach and indicated that it hurt. Although, he did not vomit today. We are thankful that his little stomach is, at least, getting relief from the vomiting. He was sleeping during our last visit of the day. I hope he has a restful night.
Through this blog, we feel like you have all been with us. Thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and words of encouragement through this unimaginable experience. Carolyn stated in her post how she feels that God has brought us all together through Clay. This has been our thought too. Many tears have been shed: tears of worry, tears of heartaches, tears of thankfulness, tears of joy, tears of weariness, tears of encouragement - we know that God feels it too and are thankful each day for His continued comfort.
