Courtney Dye Shows Small Improvements

After 15 days in a coma, Courtney Dye was moved to a “stepdown” Intensive Care Unit.

The Olympic dressage rider was injured in a schooling accident when her mount slipped and fell in Loxahatchee, Fla.

Lendon Gray reported that Dye has started more physical therapy—having all parts of her body moved.

She has opened her eyes recently and was even able to turn her head and track photographs of Idocus, her beloved Grand Prix mount, and Viva, her mini daschund.

After 15 days in a coma, Courtney Dye was moved to a “stepdown” Intensive Care Unit.

The Olympic dressage rider was injured in a schooling accident when her mount slipped and fell in Loxahatchee, Fla.

Lendon Gray reported that Dye has started more physical therapy—having all parts of her body moved.

She has opened her eyes recently and was even able to turn her head and track photographs of Idocus, her beloved Grand Prix mount, and Viva, her mini daschund.

“With her left hand she has reached for something both up and for the first time across her body. The feeding tube was replaced by one directly to her stomach,” stated Gray.

Jason Dye, Courtney’s husband, said that she has received well over 1,000 emails of support. “It really is overwhelming just how much people care about my girl. Thank you again for all these kind words. Please keep them coming in, they do make a difference,” he wrote on her website.

Jason also linked to a “ComeBackCourt” t-shirt—100 percent of the profits will go toward Courtney’s medical fund.

Cards and donations may be sent to: Courtney Dye, 2442 Muir Circle, Wellington, FL, 33414. Emails should go to comebackcourt@gmail.com.
