Court in Penobscot Bay in July On "SURPRISE"
We're pushing through the weekend, eating lots of good food, watching DVD's and Stu and I have been battling at Guitar Hero. Courtney has been active brain-wise today, as the doctors have lowered the sedatives she has responded with activity. Her brain activity was actually a bit much, so for now they've put her back under full sedation. The plan is to wait it out until Monday, when the doctors will lower the sedatives to wake her up and we pray she doesn't go into seizures.
I see we've already received a few comments and the site hasn't even been up a day yet, thank you. To everyone who wishes they could be by Courtney's side: she looks very peaceful, almost like a deep sleep. She's breathing through a respirator, although she is not reliant on it (they are really just babying her to be on the cautious side). She's warm to the touch, and in the few instances where she's not fully sedated you can catch her with her eyes open and a twitch here and there.
I'm still tinkering with the blog a bit, you should be able to post comments without starting a google account now, for anyone who wants me to put up a picture, email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Her dad sent me the black and white picture with today's post.
Given the circumstances, Courtney has a very strong support group around her, she is lucky to have so many people show their concern and love for her. Keep it coming. We're praying for Courtney to come back to us everyday, staying strong, staying positive.
We Love you Courtney and we can't wait to have you back safe and sound.
