The Road to Recovery
Cory will be in the hospital for a little while longer while they monitor proper brain function from his fall and from the amount of time that he was unconscious. Cory is not sedated or on the ventilator anymore after a little over twenty-four hours of needing this support. He will now need to be on beta blockers to keep his heart at a lower rate consistently to allow his blood to pump with more ease. There is a possibility for a defibrillator to be placed to shock his heart back into rhythm if and when something like this happens again. It is too soon to tell what the future holds for Cory. He is still very confused and a little angry that he is in the hospital. Circumstances keep changing daily, but we are giving all glory to God for the progress so far. He has been and we believe that He will continue to be in the details.
Psalm 121:1 "I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord the Maker of heaven and earth.
We appreciate all the love, support, and prayers thus far. Keep the prayers coming. They ARE working. Cory is very lucky to be alive and we are abundantly grateful for the fast actions of the coaches and men who stepped in that evening and literally saved Cory's life.
