Update....”One of the other Drs just left and here is where we are....the scan on her heart showed no signs of infection but it isn't beating normally. They can't tell from the scan if the lymes has hit it yet but looking at the scan and her symptoms they are pretty sure it has. But it's good news that there isn't an infection. There wasn't any bleeds or anything with the liver which is what they were looking for. They are pretty sure it has hit her central nervous system which also includes her brain (which is scary).

Pneumonia has also settled in (which she said wasn't a surprise). She said Courtney has a long road ahead of her due to all the above plus how weak she is and trying to recover from the 2 surgeries and the blood loss.”

That much blood loss and replacement is very hard on the body. That alone would be a challenge. The lyme disease, the surgery and the complications. This lady is tough or she wouldn't have gone this far. Keep hope. Keep praying. Even people like myself who have no clue who she is keep checking in and praying for her and those of you at her side. May Yahweh keep and hold her. May He breath life and healing into her body and spirit. May He strengthen the loved ones around her and give them hope.

Just now getting home and checking in...
Man, my heart aches for all of you guys... Courtney, Jennifer, Brandon and those kiddos... I can't imagine how stressful it is for you guys!

Lord we love You and we give you all the honor and glory in all of this. We ask You to strengthen these in their individual tasks. Heal Courtney, give Jennifer and Brandon strength and power to persevere until she is healed. Lord, heal her heart, purge her lungs of the pneumonia, and heal her liver and other organs. remove this Lyme disease from her. Lord we know You love the children above all so we ask You to heal Courtney so that she can raise her kids up for Your Glory. Lord, our hearts all ache and if You would heal Courtney's heart, our hearts would all be healed and strengthened as well. Please give us a healthy Courtney as an outcome to this trial so that we may shout Your glory and praise from the roof-tops across the land. We know You are our God and we love You. We also love our sister Courtney. Please keep her in this Green Screen circle of family. We ask this be Your will in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
