Default My son Clay

I wanted to start a thread where I could post updates about Clay, and also have a place to thank the many people that have offered their help and prayers. Clay"s arm is looking better and he'll have another surgery on it in the next couple of days. His leg is doing great. Luckily that bullet went straight thru the upper thigh without hitting anything vital. We were blessed and God has great plans for Clay. All I want is for my boy to heal his body and mind. I pray for the families that were not as fortunate as us. My hart breaks for these kids that have to deal with the rollercoaster of emotions that come with senseless tragedies like this. I've witness dozens of children come through this hospital room in the last few days, many of them were in the same room as my son. Some seem to be handling it pretty well, but some are visibly struggling with things. Please continue praying for everyone effected by this. Recovery and healing will take quite some time.
I'm not looking forward to the circus this thing could turn into. I'd like to keep this thread positive and focused on prayers and not politcal stuff. Clay and the rest of these children need time to grieve before they are bombarded with outside agendas. The kids I have meet in the last few days are Texans thru and thru. When they get thier time to speak you'll know it.

Our thoughts are with Clay, his classmates, teachers and staff at the school. And just as importantly, with you and your family. Clay sounds like a tough kid and as tragic as this all is. And as tough as its going to be.

It will bring the community and you guys closer together. And that's always a positive thing. The world throws some rough stuff at us, and you guys are experiencing the absolute worst of it as a community and as parents. Ill just leave my prayers right here for all of you. For today, and for getting through this one day at a time.

We are praying for Clay and your family. You are right that the mental recovery will likely take longer than the physical one. Remember that what Clay will go through is normal and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Just keep active and keep moving towards that light.

Thank you for the update Jay & it's good to hear Clay is on the mend...I have no doubt you guys will get him the support he needs for the mental side of healing. That is a lot for him & his classmates to absorb. If he is up to getting down to the Valley after the brutal Summer headed our way & hunting season rolls around, I'll be glad to help put him on something.

Blessing & prayers for all you affected in Santa Fe...
