Day 120 | JANUARY 08, 2022
Good Evening Friends, today is day 120 of new and amazing life!
It is hard to imagine that we are at our 4 months mark, and so much has happened, so many lessons learned, so many difficulties we overcame and so many miracles we have witnessed!
It is also strange that sometimes 120 days feels like an eternity and other days it went by so fast, time is very relative, but one thing is for sure!
Time is precious and one of our most valuable assets, and everyone, rich or poor, gets the same 24H each day. The big question is how do we choose to spend it each day, especially when we learned that the next 24H is not guaranteed to come !
How are we choosing to use our 24H tomorrow?
Charlie had a very good day, she started her air drying time a little later today. On the weekends they let her sleep in a little , today she also did her full body care, and Charlie continues to endure pain with a lot of grace and strength !
Today we talked about her day before I got there and also about our boys. Charlie is counting the days she will hold our boys in her arms, and that day is coming, I can’t wait to know for sure what day that will be !
Charlie asked me to cut her toenails and I did my best! She is so happy that she didn’t lose any of her fingers or toes !
That is indeed a blessing, a lot of burn survivors lose their fingers or toes due to specific medications used during their early stage of care, Charlie feels very blessed .
Today Charlie wanted to FaceTime her mom to wish her a happy birthday! And the call went very well, with Charlie's family being able to see her for the first time !
Before I left , Charlie's dinner came and I was able to feed her dinner, a delicious penne pasta with meat sauce, and a side of roasted potatoes and a chocolate brownie for dessert. Charlie is slowly increasing her appetite.
Well, today was a blessed day!
May God Bless You.
