Clayton Update

Clayton is doing much better! He still has long road to recovery, but he is alive and breathing on his own! His skull is fractured in two places, his right jaw is fractured and he still has some bleeding around his brain. The side of his face that is fractured is drooped and he is seeing double. He has had a CT scan everyday and will continue to have them until he leaves the hospital. Hoping he gets moved out of ICU today.

I want to thank all who whispered a prayer for him! I knew I could depend on my blog family to help me out! Continue to remember him, doc says he will need a whole month of recovery. He is coming home with me so I can care of him proper!

Thanks again! TOT

Oh that is very good news. Head injuries can be very bad so it's a relief to hear that though it sounds like Clayton has a long road to full recovery, he is going to be a-okay ... especially with all your loving care!!! Will continue to hold you all in my thoughts!

Attic Rat said...

So glad to hear that he is on the mend. I know how frightening it is when your babies get hurt (doesn't matter how old they are)

My oldest was hit by a drunk driver. We are thankful to all who voiced prayers for him.

I will pray for his continued healing.

Hugs,
Teresa

Pandora said...

My prayers are with you! A similar accident happened to my nephew in July. He had to have a portion of his skull removed to relieve the pressure from the brain swelling. Now nearly 2 months later he is doing quite well - still in the hospital in the acute rehab section. I have been at the hospital every weekend to be with him - I know what you are going through! If you want to talk, you can always email me. Hang in there - the recovery takes time, but he will make it!!

God is faithful! Our son suffered a brain injury from a car accident. After nearly three months in a coma, he woke up against all odds!

June said...

I'm so glad that Clayton is improving. I'm sure he will be more than happy to go to mom's to recover fully. I'm sure he will be totally spoiled and cared for there. My prayers continue for you all.
Hugs,
June

In BlogLand as you follow a link or two, you never know where you'll end up or if there is reason. I guess another prayer is just a good thing.
I'll keep your sweet son in my prayers, too. A mom just feels what's in your heart right now.
Praying for Perfect Health for Clayton.
