Monday, March 15th

Good day to all. Clay has all of his stitches out from his last surgery. He and his brothers have gone to South Texas for a week of spring break. When I spoke with Deidra this morning they had been to the beach yesterday and were capturing tree frogs in Pappy & Grandma's yard this morning. Dana (Deidra's twin sister) and the girls are there from Omaha and I am certain there are no dull moments. Clay is scheduled for another surgery toward the end of the month. They are going to have to do more work on his neck to allow him to lean his head back farther before the trach can be removed. He splashed in some waves while wading with his cousin. Mom was a little anxious about him getting too deep, but he seems to know he is not ready for that yet. I know that this is a brief post, but I wanted to let everyone know that Clay is all little boy and doing well. Thanks to all.

  5. We were glad to read your update last night and hope the boys have a very good time at the ocean. I bet Clay was glad to get the stiches out before his trip. Hope all are well and looking forward to a nice Spring.

  9. We are sure there are no dull moments in South Texas! And, we know Grandma and Pappy are enjoying all of them. Clay proves over and over again that he is a little trooper! And . . . he knows his limits. But that doesn't stop the mommy-mode kicking in when "we" feel potential danger. That happens even when they are grown! We look forward to your next post. Our continued love goes to you all.
