Thursday, May 21st
Hello to all. Short post tonight from Olney. Clay was pretty good this morning he played with some toys that O.T. brought in and was proud of his accomplishments. Deidra and Joy came in to one visit and there was an ear, nose, and throat specialist from Children's doing an exam on Clay. They are going to schedule him a trip over to their hospital to do some test trying to pinpoint the cause of the vomiting. We thought this was an example of the BICU being cautious after yesterdays incident, apparently not. At 6:00 tonight Deidra was informed that Clay is scheduled to be moved out of the BICU tomorrow. He will be moved with the trach in place. Mom and Grandma started packing up some of his stuff tonight. He gave them his spiky ball that he sleeps with each night. They told him he could keep it until the move tomorrow. He said no and indicated he wanted it packed up. Grandma told him if he could get a good nights sleep he would be ready for the move tomorrow. He quickly shut his eyes. He is ready to go. Joy and Deidra had another surprise today. Kermit went home to Austin with his grandmother. He came by Clay's room to say goodbye and just missed Joy and Deidra. The nurse told Deidra and she ran down the stairs to say goodbye. She shed several tears with Kermit and his Grandmother but they were tears of joy. We wish Kermit a quick recovery and hope he enjoys being home with his loved ones. Deidra and Joy are back at the Ronald McDonald House getting clothes washed and some things together, because Deidra will get to stay the night with Clay once he is moved out of ICU. Tomorrow will be a milestone for Clay. I am sure God knows what is best for him and he will continue to improve in his care. Thanks to everyone for your post and concerns we appreciate all.
