Wednesday, June 17
Hello to all! Clay had a busy day for a five yr. old. He gets tired very quickly. I know it will take some time to gain his strength back. My sister drops us off at the front of his therapy clinic, and he is exhausted just from walking from the car to the waiting room. He kicked a ball, played catch, balanced on an exercise ball, had his leg stretched, and had paraffin put behind his left knee during his physical therapy session at 11:00am. He then was hungry for lunch, ate a few bites, and wanted to rest. His OT (occupational therapy) appointment was at 2:00pm and he was tired before the hour was up. The therapists put a new cast on his right hand and it will be cut off on Friday. On Friday, a new cast will be made and left on until next Monday. The scars on his right hand are causing the fingers to hyperextend. This is why casting it is so important. He was hungry for fettuccine alfredo and so we found an Olive Garden. Uncle Justin met us there, so we had a nice visit. Clay got tired in the middle of his meal and wanted to lie down. He went to sleep early; but, not before he ate some of his left-over fettuccine. We have an early OT appointment, so I am going to head to bed, also. He slept really well last night and I hope he has a restful night tonight. Thanks for keeping up with us and for all your care.
