Thursday, September 17th
Good day to everyone. I wanted to drop a quick update on Clay's week. His occupational therapist came to the house Monday morning and did some hand exercises. As soon as he was finished he and his mother packed up and headed to Galveston for a consultation with the plastic surgeon there on Tuesday morning. They were able to meet up with Grandma, "Joy" somewhere south of Olney and she went with them to help out. Tuesday after their visit with the surgeon they went to the beach for a few minutes. It was cloudy and overcast so Clay could run wild for a moment and not worry about the heat or the sun. They took him to lunch at the Rain Forest Cafe, he enjoyed that, they then started home. They picked up grandma's car and made it back to Olney sometime before midnight. Wednesday Clay had physical therapy and school. His therapist worked him hard then his teacher graded some of his papers. We went to meeting in Seymour last night and Clay and Deidra are on their way to Dallas now for a pre-op appointment at Children's at 1:00. What I am trying to say is Clay may need the surgery, that is scheduled for 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, to rest. He and we are staying busy. We appreciated all of the comments on the last post. Please remember Clay tomorrow. They are planning to work on his left hand and place full thickness skin grafts under both eyes. We anticipate the procedure lasting about 4 hours. He will stay in the hospital for observation Friday night. Carson and Cody are at home under the capable care of Grandma. Thanks to all and take care.
