July 2 Update

I know I have said it before, but it is amazing what a good nights sleep does for a body.  After getting an assisted (sleeping pills) good night sleep Corrine was doing so much better then on Thursday.  I was shocked at the night and day difference in her ability to cope and enjoy life as it is right now.

One of Corrine's Physical Therapists happens to be a girl that Corrine knew in her singles ward.  That has been nice for Corrine.  I don't know the Therapists name but she was able to take Corrine outside for about 20 minutes yesterday.  They had to use one of the Cardiac wheel chairs because sitting up more then about 30 degrees right now is really painful.   But she is getting there.  Corrine's new favorite phrase is "this sucks".    We all agree with her. 

As part of the injuries that we didn't know about until later Corrine got a pretty bad burn on her abdomen.  It is bad enough that they are going to take her into surgery on Tuesday.  They are just going to cut out the burned part and let it heal on its own.  They figure she has been through enough that they are not going to put her through the trauma of skin grafts.

Thank you for keeping us all updated on Corrine's condition. I appreciate it so much. She has been and will continue to be in my prayers.

Corrine and Damon,
we are so glad for all these updates and to know you are progressively going to be getting better. Alex and I will be getting on a plane to play softball at the international Cat Osterman tournament in a few hours. So we will be in Nebraska all week. Natalia joined Jami and the family at the cabin at Brianhead. Hopefully you'll be up for a visit when we all return home. We think of you daily and keep you in our prayers. Thanks to the typist for the daily updates - keep them coming!! See you both when we get back. Lots of love - Janae and Dave, Alex and Natalia

So good to hear positive progress again. Our prayers will continue to be with Damon and Corrine. I can not get over what a beautiful angel Livi is. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! As a wife of a Physical therapist, I admire Corrine for the strength and determination she has to heal and heal well, despite the pain she has to go through to get there. AMAZING!!!
