Wednesday, June 10th
Hello to all. Short and late post tonight, sorry. Clay had another day of vomiting, as has become the norm. We are receiving a lot of advice and all is appreciated. Know one knows the exact cause of the problem but we will continue to try different treatments. Clay had to have his IV replaced because his was plugged and no longer viable. The nurses missed his vein several times and he was in a great deal of pain. This afternoon the childlife specialist brought a doll of some sort in and gave Clay a needle. She told him it was his turn to give an IV. Mom said he took great pleasure in sticking the doll. I asked him if the doll was crying and he said yes. I am sure that he was happy that someone beside him was getting stuck with a needle. Misery loves company. He was nauseated most of the day and never kept any food down. If we decide to stay where we are they will put the feeding tube back in tomorrow and probably do a die test on him to see if there is anything unusual in his stomach. Mom, Grandma, and Cody had a meeting with Clay tonight. They said he tried to participate. He feels so bad it is hard for him to do much of anything. One hymn that was chosen was # 383 Deidra really enjoyed the portion which says' "He knows our trials and temptations, And bids us seek His face alone For grace to overcome and live a life more worthy of his Well done." Hope all have or had a restful night. Thanks for your thoughts , prayers and concerns.
