Saturday, June 13th
Good evening to all. This is Chance in Dallas. Clay is hooked up, feed tube, IV, humidified room air. All of the above does not make for a very restful nights sleep. Hard to go back to all of this stuff when we felt we had left it behind. They are taking blood twice a day to make sure his numbers are coming back up. They are still giving some potassium. He had a pretty good day today. He went to the playroom a couple of times, once on his bike and twice on foot. I had the opportunity to pull the trach today. I was amazed at the size of the hole in his throat. It is tiny. If things continue as they are we are looking at discharge Monday and outpatient therapy the rest of the week. We are excited about the prospect and hope he continues to improve. We had several visitors today and this past week and all were appreciated. Clay seems to have wrapped several of the therapist and nurses around his finger and they all stop in to visit from time to time. Tomorrow marks the 4 month anniversary of the accident and Clay has come along way. We are thankful for the doctors, nurses, friends, and family that have helped Clay make it back to here.
