The Spencer Family Fisher House Story:
On December 11, 2018, a storm wrecked havoc on the city of Kodiak, Alaska, causing multiple injuries, to then pregnant, Courtney Spencer. Thanks to amazing doctors and the staff and volunteers of the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Fisher House, the family was able to hold off on having their baby boy for almost five weeks.
Courtney and Colin started trying to have a child after Colin was already an eight-year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard. But four years later, fertility treatments were needed to conceive their first born.
On December 11, an ultrasound appointment during a storm revealed that Courtney’s body was very close to going into labor, which would have been life threatening to baby Percival.
“At the time, I’m thinking, ‘We’re being medevacced to save the baby,’ but I learned later that no, they didn’t expect the baby to survive. They were just trying to save me,” Courtney said. For almost five weeks, the Spencers lived at the JBER Fisher House.
“We spent Christmas there. We spent New Year’s. The whole house kind of did a big New Year’s Dinner. We all cooked.”
“Well, I didn’t, but everyone else did.” Courtney directed her husband’s cooking from her bed via text and photo messages. Colin helped cook a donated ham that they shared with other guests.
Percival came a few weeks later on January 13. Colin spent as much time as he could in the hospital visiting his wife and son, only returning to the Fisher House when he was kicked out.
By July 1, it was safe to send the whole family from the hospital to the Fisher House, and then to send the whole family home. On January 13, 2020, Percival turned 1, in Boston. The family stays in touch with other Fisher House families who helped them welcome their little boy.
