9/24 Afternoon Update

Hi Everybody,

Courtney's keeping very active today, she's moving her legs back and forth, stiffening her wrists and she's been able to touch her right hand to her cheek. It's been a big relief to see her in motion, especially after a scary night that saw her running a fever and a heart rate around 140 (normally kept between 80-100). We were very worried about her, they replaced her breathing tube and put her on the respirator temporarily. Court's temperature and levels returned to normal this morning and her goal is to keep breathing on her own until Midnight.

We'll continue to watch over Court and her platoon of stuffed animals, Mow Mow, Honey, Pecos and the three bears. Between the bears and the bag of porridge she's eating (Ultrapak, actually), it's like coming to visit Goldilocks. We're still trying to get the bed "just right."

I'll be back later tonight with some more photos.

We Love you Courtney and we can't wait to have you back safe and sound.

To Sharyn, Caleb's Mom:
I would love to talk to you as well, I'm on the hospital computer and not able to bring up my email as well but when I get back to the wonderful house that has been given to us through these more than trying times, I'll fire up my computer and we'll get in touch.
