Great news


I’ve been absent for a while but I have amazing news!!! My brother is up and better then ever. He spent a month in a special brain rehabilitation hospital and now we are outpatient in the same hospitals patient housing!! He’s made amazing progress and it is hoped that he will be able to weight bare on June 6th. Every doctor and nurse he’s met has told us how amazing his progress has been and he should make a full recovery in a year or two. He has to be extra careful with his head as any tiny little bump could cause enough damage to kill him but for the most part he’s pretty much good to go. While he may never walk the same (with the small possibility of never walking again at all) but his life should get back to somewhat normal eventually. He won’t be allowed to drive or work for a couple years but what is the most important thing is that he get better and is as close to 100% as he’ll manage to get!

Also as of a week and a day ago I finally turned 18!! In order to move out I’ll just need to get a job and save some money but for now I’m staying with my mom and brother helping both of them out. The stress zits are for real though haha! I’d like to thank everyone who prayed for my brother and hoped he’d get better! And for everyone’s support in the hardest times of my life! I appreciate all of you and your kindness and support if very my appreciated!

Such positive news Cortney. It must be a huge relief for you & your family that he's made such huge steps towards recovery. Still needing your support but as things were so unsure only a few months back it has to be good news.

Congratulations on turning 18 🎂. I know priorities have changed & family takes precedence just now but you'll beat able to fly soon enough, think of it as being needed more. You've the rest of your life to look forward to. x
