10/30 Update and Photos (16)

Welcome to Spaulding Rehab

Courtney's expecting a visitor Wednesday, a representative from Crotched Mountain, as well as all the ghouls and ghosts that are sure to be on patrol. We don't expect this evaluation process to be quite as fast as how she got into Spaulding, it will still be a matter of weeks if she is accepted. We'll look to make a good impression, I've already studied up on New Hampshire's Old Man of the Mountain and motto "Life Free or Die" by looking at the state's quarter and licence plate respectively.

The doctor's learned that Court's carrying a strain of Staph yesterday, a skin bacteria that can cause infection, and to be on the safe side she's moved into her own room. Staph can be risky for patients with weakened immune systems, but the good news is that she merely carrying the bacteria and not suffering any of the symptoms. Dr. Tom, a family friend and doctor in Boston, stopped by for his regular visit and let Marty and myself know that Staph is quite common, many people have it without even knowing, Courtney may have even had it well before going into the hospital.

Thanks to Court's private suite, overnight visits are no longer limited to females, Marty has the esteemed privilege of staying with Miss Blasius tonight. I'm glad that Julie can catch some more nights off, the graveyard shift is a tough gig.

Let's hope everyone catches some Z's. Here are a few pics from the area around Spaulding and from Court's old room.
