Update: Courtney Dye Moving To New Jersey

Courtney Dye is scheduled to fly in an air ambulance to The Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in W. Orange, N.J., today, March 25, according to Lendon Gray’s blog.

“Courtney is still technically in a coma, although she sometimes responds to commands to move and even smile. She is being put in a special chair to allow her to sit up for periods of time,” wrote Gray on Wednesday, March 24. “This is the beginning of a long road of rehab although no one can tell us how long or how difficult that road will be.”
