Monday Afternoon Update

Hi Everybody,

Courtney and me (reflecting in her aviators) at Snow Farm Winery in South Hero, Vt.

We also caught this gem on that trip, the owner of Allenholm farm convinced us the relationship was strictly platonic

So there's more good news, Courtney is back off the Pentobarbital for the third time, apparently her leg movement from the morning was not as distressing as we had first thought. Now it's back to the waiting game. We did not meet with the medical team today, instead we may see the neurologist Dr. Gorman later this evening and we will be meeting with everyone tomorrow at 11:30 am, hopefully.

We had a sneaking suspicion that Courtney had a big heart, but today Julie, Marty and I saw the evidence first hand when a specialist came in to her room and did a live scan of her cardiovascular system. The technology at the hospital is just incredible, we watched her heart valves flutter open and shut in a decidedly healthy rhythm according to the doctor. The entire medical staff at Fletcher Allen has been terrific, while we may prefer the personality of certain doctors or nurses over others, Courtney does have some brilliant minds and caring hearts seeing to her recovery. There's a nice little old lady who volunteers her time at the McClure waiting room entrance, she's been able to buzz us in and out of the ICU at will and she has chocolate.

Things are calm for now, we'll say our prayer at 7 and have a nice meal. The cookies, bread, soups and snacks have been good pick-me-ups, thanks everyone.

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