Inquiring Minds...

Sorry about the lack of updates...not a lot going on lately except of course, Courtney's progress. This week it's been status quo, which is fine. She is doing all her therapies and still has her "off" days when things don't seem to go as fast as she'd like. All in all she is right where she should be we think and is walking a little bit more every day. One night she was lounging in the jacuzzi (yeah, tough life) and she said " wow, Mom, I can see my legs!" That was very exciting for both of us. Imagine not seeing any part of your body for four months! Each day her eyesight seems to improve although it's not consistant, but what is where brain injuries are concerned?
This weekend she is entertaining some of her friends at the Greenfield house and I assume battening down the hatches at the Mountain, getting ready for the storm tonight and into tomorrow. I am up in Bethlehem, N.H. for a couple of days and will be back on Monday with Marty. On Tues. she will go back to the hospital in Manchester to have the defibrillator removed as well as the recalled lead wire. We all are anxious for this to come out and have it behind us. As things stand right now Court does not want another defib. put back in . Until we know more about why she got shocked and why the lead wire came off in the first place as well as why the defib. rotated, we are not in any hurry to have another one put in.
That's it from this end . We post how everything is going with the surgery after Tues.
Thanks for your constant support and encouragement. Keep the faith!
Love, Julie/mom

Thank you, Julie! I guess the most frustrating thing for me, is the fact that progress is slow and inconsistent. I would love Court to be instantly fixed but I have to remember that every day is a blessing and every day Court IS healing. I'm just so relieved that she's come as far as she has and I can't wait to see her in a few days!

See you soon, Sweet pea!

Love,

Aunt Marti

The snow is falling... On the mountain the wind is wild. Today we shall remain on campus. We were planning to swim, alas the pool shall be closed due to the snowy weather. (its tuff getting up and down the mountain in a storm.) We have numerous other choices though. Sean and I are her entertainment commitee today.

All goes well.

Holiday wishes to all,

Wow, Courtney, those photos of you are great! Esp the ones of you making fun of your poor mother (haha).
Good luck tomorrow with the defib procedure.....we all know you'll come through it just fine. I'm sure it will be a relief not to have anything except your own self under your skin!
Love, Patricia
