Day 151 | FEBRUARY 08, 2022
Good Evening Friends, today is day 151 of our new and amazing life!
Today I spent my morning writing and I got very emotional remembering the early days of the accident. It is incredible to relive all those emotions and how powerful the inspiration comes to me as I continue to write.
Today I arrived at the hospital around my usual time and Charlie was in her chair and had just finished a good session with PT.
Today they had a machine that lifted Charlie into a standing position without putting weight on her feet, she said it felt very painful and it was hard to do for a long time , but she managed to work on it for few minutes, it is going to be a difficult and painful process, however Charlie is so determined that she will push very hard thru the pain, but she will need of our prayers and support!
Charlie was very uncomfortable today, they are actively reducing her IV meds , little by little each day, and she can feel it.
She stayed in the chair for almost two hours and was asked to be placed back in bed. We watched a movie on Netflix, but Charlie slept for most of it 🙂 , she was so tired from PT.
After the movie, I went over to Charlie bedside , and I just felt such a compassion towards her , because she was so uncomfortable today, I started to gentle run my fingers thru hair, and she just closed her eyes and melted away, as I am moving my hand on her head, I noticed that I haven’t touched Charlie without gloves since she got to the hospital!
It is so strange to think about that for a second.
I also realized that a simple head rub, can be such a loving and intimate moment for the two of us, it is amazing to feel so connected to your soulmate that you feel such a joy, by offering just a little of comfort when she is in pain, I feel so blessed to have my wife to share those very special moments, it is hard to explain the actual feelings that one experience, it is a mixture between, love, compassion, generosity and comfort. All together at the same time .
Tonight say I love you to your loved ones.
Today I got her a home cooked dinner and she was very happy about it 🙂
Tomorrow, Charlie will start her bladder training. In order to remove her foley, it is another big step needed for her discharge. We are just so grateful and excited for her next chapter at rehabilitation.
I am so grateful for your love and support!
May God Bless You.
