Courtney has been breathing on her own, getting dialysis 4 hours a day every other day. She has a trach collar and as of TODAY she has been able to actually speak and use her voice. Her lungs are still infected but Courtney is in good spirits. She has so much to be thankful for! Thank you all for the prayers.
Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates it's been hectic! Courtney is now awake and alert, her lungs are still very infected and her hands and feet are not getting better. Results today shows her infection levels higher and thinking it could possibly be due to her hands and feet! So please continue to pray! She is still at UAB were she will stay for 6-8 months!!
Courtney is still fighting hard!!! I want to thank each and everyone who has made a donation. Drs told is that she will be at UAB for 6 to 8 months. She still has a long process ahead of her! Please continue to pray. Thank you all.
sorry for the lack of updates. Been super busy starting fundraisers to help with her expenses . Courtney is staying strong, she is now alert, knows who people are and can move things thay the Drs ask her to move... She is still very sick. The Drs are still concerned about her lungs and kidneys. Her white cell count was high but has now came down to 21. Courtney is a fighter and she isn't giving up. I will be leaving bright and early Sunday morning to head out to UAB imnsho excited to see Courtney knowing you can see me back! Please keep the prayers coming they are working.
We talked to the Drs yesterday afternoon. Courtney has swelling on the brain, they expect it to swell at least 2 to 4 more days. As the swelling goes down they are hopeful she will be more responsive. They are giving her medicine to control the swelling.
Still waiting to hear from the Drs
Update on Courtney Miller.
Full ct scan completed. The neurologist, pulmonary, kidney, and all
the other doctors on her team are going to meet tom with test
results and come up with a plan. Then, they meet with the family.
Oxygen and blood pressure are stabilized and her temp is normal
so thank God for small miracles. But she is still critical. Still on life
support and still hasn't woken up and is back on the sedation medicine so her body can rest!
The reason Courtney was transported to UAB...
She didn't react well to the dialysis. Her oxygen level started dropping fast. She's at a very dangerous level right now and they've started the process of transferring her to UAB in Birmingham. The move is extremely risky but keeping her here is even riskier. Up there they can do something for her lungs called Ecmo. They don't have that capability here in Mobile. Please pray for her safe transfer and improvement. It doesn't look good guys.
Praise GOD Courtney Miller has made it to UAB!!!! They have her
in a room and they are putting in an oxygennation unit in her
neck to stabilize her oxygen!! Please keep her in your prayer!
Thank you all for your calls, text, and fb comments! Our family is
truly grateful for everyone of you!
here's the latest on Courtney, she is still at the critical point, but
making minor improvements each day, they have hooked her up for
dialysis today, and have a cadiologist on her team now that is
going to monitor the rapid heart rate, and try to reduce the rapid
beat, the fever is still high, and they are working and doing all they
can to get that reduced, she is swollen from the fluids that they are
pumping into her, and hopefully the dialysis will help that today,
they are still fighting the infection so that was welcoming news, the cardiologist is onboard because her heart is only
pumping out, less than 35%, while the normal heart pumps out at
about 75%., its going to take time to get over this, and hopefully
today will bring more positive news.
blood count is better oxygen is staying in the 90's and and they have moved her from critical to serious..
