Tuesday, June 9th
Hello to all. This is Chance posting from Olney. I bet it's hard to know where we are. We are not sure ourselves sometimes. Grandma, Cody, and Mom are in Dallas tonight. Joy spent the night with Clay and said it was not very restful. He continued to vomit through the night. The resident doctor was making his rounds this morning and he told Joy they were not overly concerned about the vomiting. I bet he would be concerned if it was him who had been sick since last Saturday morning. Deidra met with the social worker and told her we were not comfortable with what we had been shown with the trach. They allowed her to go into the tank and two of the doctors came in and showed her how to pull it out. Clay panicked with out it and would not breath through his mouth or nose. They replaced the trach and he promptly vomited. All and all quite a learning experience for everyone involved. Dee Dee thinks that the anxiety he has about his trach is causing the vomiting. I think the cause has yet to be determined. They tried to entice him to eat all day so he would not have to have the feed tube placed back in. They were not successful. He has still not had a bowel movement and several people suggested we try a product called Miralax. Grandma is going to see if this would be available tonight. We are having a tough time these last few days and we are hopeful that something will resolve the problems for Clay. Good night to all.
