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.
