Tuesday, May 5
Hello to all. I think Chance and Arnie wore Clay out yesterday because he slept a lot today. :-) His little body has been working so hard, so I like to see him resting peacefully. He was awake during our 11:00am visit and got to go to the playroom. The occupational therapist was waiting for us when we arrived, and she had the Wii set up for him. She placed the remote in his hand and showed him the correct buttons to push. He played a boxing game which required him to move his right arm back and forth really fast. All this exertion made him tired and he fell asleep right there in his chair, so we took him back to his room. The physical therapist walked him before our 2:00 visit. She said that Clay did not want to walk, but did it anyway. He walked down the hall faster than usual and wanted back in his bed. He was asleep during our 2:00 and 5:00 visit. Some friends brought dinner to us this evening, and they also brought a big soft bear for Clay. He was awake during our last visit and wanted this new bear on his bed. Before we left, he patted his stomach and motioned for us to place the bear on his stomach. The bear was almost as big as Clay and he was smiling as we left the room. I just want to pick Clay up and give him hugs and kisses. When I have to leave the other boys, I can't get enough hugs and kisses. I'm so thankful for the comfort we have in God. We're thankful for your prayers and for Clay's progress.
