Hey Cody it is me Courtney I hope you don’t get mad, but I am going to write in your journal while you rest up. I can’t just sit here and do nothing while the doctors try to fix you.
Cody did not have a good time last night. The stitches on his left hand opened up yesterday and became infected. He had to stay the night at the medical facility to be monitored. The infection has spread quickly and has yet to slow down. If it gets any worse they might have to cut of his left arm! Next time tell people about this brother or I will never let you forget about it! Cody has been in a daze most of today. The pain meds have him sleeping a lot. The doctor taken care of Cody tonight is one of the people the rescue party brought back. His name is Dr.Singh a surgeon that retired to set up a family practice in town. Most of the people crammed in the van when Dad came back was his office staff and family. The doctors have done all they can to try and save your arm. All we can do now is wait. You may never say it, but what you did during the battle was so courageous. It is so like you to think of others instead of yourself.
Lily told us it was Cody the first ran to help others once those large cracked skin monsters attacked. Even though you knew it was risky and that you might not make it out alive. Lily also told us he engaged one of those “Charred” in melee combat and won. Looking at his wounds though it doesn’t seem like it was a flawless victory. Cody’s injuries are extensive. He is missing two fingers on his left hand, the bruising on his face was so bad that his left eye is still swollen shut. Also he has cuts all up and down his body. Mom said that you were more stitches than man. I tried to ask Lily more, but that was all she remember. She didn’t make it out of the battle unharmed either. Both Lily and Cody were one of the first ones to get brought into the makeshift triage set up in the mess hall. Cody looked so bad that we didn’t think he would make it. How this infection is spreading tonight he still might not. Mom just barely started letting him leave the house last two day. Only so he could watch Will and Beth the girl he has secret crush on train with Lily. Then it was right back home to rest of. I knew his injuries were bad when Mom let him sleep in and didn’t make him do homeschool. I wish my family would stop getting injured all the time. Maybe after all these attacks happen we can go back to normal. Whatever normal is when you are living through the end of the world. Beth is here to keep me company tonight. I think she likes Cody and much as he tries to hide how much he likes her. They will make a cute couple I think I will try to get them together.
