I'll Try


Courtney met with the
dietitian today and she's taken another step closer to having her feeding tube out, her goal is to finish more than half of each meal in order to start skipping ProBalance feedings. Tonight she ate a hefty dinner of chicken cordon blue, green beans, potatoes, fruit and chocolate pie. She was able to skip her final tube feed of the night.

We went for a dip in the pool afterward and even though she was feeling tired she still gave it her best. Come to think of it, Courtney's will is one thing that impresses me most about her, "I'll try" are the two words you'll likely hear when asking her to do just about anything. She's had plenty of reasons to quit or break down emotionally over the past three months and she's held it together throughout. Nobody thought Court would progress as far as she has this soon and still maintain lofty goals for herself.

I'm headed back to Burlington tomorrow to touch base with friends and the Support For Courtney crew as well as prepare for Benefunk, which is coming up this Wednesday night.


Here's the poster for the event, we'll be plastering them around Burlington and UVM over the weekend. We created a Benefunk event on Facebook (that newfangled networking site that all the kids think is so supercool these days) and hundreds of invitations have been sent out already. Keep RSVPing everyone, we want Metronome packed, no excuses.

court, i'm sure you can do the eating! just keep thinking how great it'll feel to be rid of the that stomache tube. i realize how frustrating it must feel to be so tired these days, but with what your body just got through, i imagine it just needs a little extra time to recover. i know that you'll be feeling stronger and up to your old tricks (aka slapping sean around when he gets out of line) very soon! i love you so much!

Sean ~ can you post more pictures of Court (older and newer, it doesn't matter which!). Maybe Court's family and friends can dig through the pics again and post some new ones. I find them very inspirational and its a way to feel connected to a special young woman.
