10/15 Standing is Hard Work
I spent the morning with Court before heading back up to Burlington today. She was in good spirits even though she's been battling nausea lately, possibly from a combination of coming off of drugs and being fed larger liquid meals.
We sat in on Courtney's physical therapy session where she was able to stand for a few minutes with the aid of some straps and padding. Its frustrating that her body still betrays her in small ways, its hard to keep her head up and stay coordinated. Courtney says she wants to be able to do more in therapy, but each session lasts a little longer and is a different challenge.
Before I left Spaulding I serenaded Court with some Iron Maiden, I figure Karaoke could be considered speech therapy. She laughs and humors me by saying I'm a good singer.
I'm looking forward to returning to Boston, I now know my way around a little better (apparently Spaulding is located next to the Bunker Hill Bridge, nobody calls it the Zakim, and the Garden, not the corporately-dubbed Fleet Center).
Goodnight Court, I'll hit you up on the cell tomorrow
