For Anyone and Everyone Pulling for Courtney
We've started this blog as an outlet for all of us who know Courtney to send our thoughts and prayers to her, her family and friends. It might be a good way for everyone to share stories and send along best wishes, until we get the chance to see her again.
To bring everyone up to speed: At the moment, Courtney is in intensive care at Fletcher Allen hospital in Burlington after she went into cardiac arrest early on Wednesday morning. She is in stable condition, her heart is pumping and she is under a chemical sedative to keep her safe. Her state is similar to that of a coma patient, but the doctors are doing it to be as cautious as possible. I hope to make updates on her status when I can, for the immediate future, doctors are monitoring Courtney's condition and are going to let her rest through the weekend. We may have a better idea by the end of Monday on how she is doing.
Many folks have asked what the potential causes behind Courts' condition, but it is still very early to tell and our main priority is getting her back.
Feel free to post comments (at the moment you'll need a gmail account to post a message, but I'm working on it.) Everyone has been so gracious and sent a lot of love (food, housing offers, flowers), we really appreciate it and it goes to show how many of us have been touched by an amazing girl.
We Love you Courtney and we can't wait to have you back safe and sound.
