Courtney King-Dye Update – Coma Day 11

*I just copied and updated this update from her husband straight from her site*

Courtney’s Update – by Jason Dye

Saturday March 13, 2010 8:20am:

Courtney remains stable and in a Coma, however she was able to take a small and positive step forward yesterday. The hospital staff were able to perform “Windsprints” where they take Courtney off the ventilator for set time periods to let her breathe on her own. She performed great as we all expect she would, they will continue this process until she can comfortably breathe on her own.

It made me happy knowing Courtney would want to be getting some exercise.

Her room is filling rapidly with all the cards and messages of support coming from all over the country and the world, the outpouring is truly impressive. Thank you for all the positive energy, prayers and thoughts flowing in Courtney’s direction.

***********************

I just think that life is so crazy. 12 days ago this Olympic Athlete was getting ready for a big show. Now, 11 days after she was hurt we are all over the moon excited that she is breathing on her own. I am really looking forward to the day when I can write that she is awake again!
