Hi Everyone,

By the time we arrived tonight, Corey was back in bed and dozing in and out of sleep! We guess her big night last night and active therapy day got to her.

Good news, her trach will be capped through the night tonight! They will hook her up to a monitor to watch her heart rate, pulse rate and oxygen level. If she tolerates the cap for the next 3 nights, they will take her trach out early next week…maybe even on Monday!
This is very good news! Once the trach is removed, she will be working towards speaking and eating.

Corey is starting to receive letters from some of her friends. We read them all to her and also read the notes you all post to us. She also received some beautiful photos of her cousins tonight. She was focusing on them and taking long blinks when we talked about them. We know she misses all of you. Please keep writing letters to her. We also know that she loves to be caught up on the gossip!

One of the letters came from a dear friend in NY. She quoted Taylor Swift that we believe reflects Corey’s personality. Those of you who know her will agree.

‘To me FEARLESS is not the absence of fear, it’s not being completely unafraid. Fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again. It’s Fearless to have faith that someday things will change’ – Taylor Swift

Sleep well sweetheart. We admire your strength, tenacity, courage, patience and fearless faith. Happy Dreams xoxo
