Day 162 | FEBRUARY 19, 2022

Good Evening Friends, today is day 162 of our new and amazing new life !


I would like to start today's Journal entry, by a moment from last night.


When I arrived from the hospital and I entered our home , there was a large box addressed to me, I opened it and inside I found a black plastic bag, with a yellow tag that said “Evidence” on it, and a description of the items inside, the electric sander and extension cords from the accident.


I am not sure why , I was just taken by surprise at the moment I read the words evidence, I felt like a flashback of the call I received when Charlie was injured, It was a very disturbing experience and I just felt overwhelmed with emotions of fear, and this thought that Charlie did not survive the accident, I know that I am not even close to be done processing this incredible life changing event/ trauma that Charlie and our family has experienced, I had a very hard time staying at sleep last night, because my mind kept racing in different directions, I pray that tonight I am able to have a better night of sleep .


This morning, I was tired but still managed to gather our boys, my mom and we went for a stroll on the downtown mall , a pedestrian mall in Charlottesville. We went there to pick up a special order of Vegan Chocolate that Charlie had ordered to give one of her nurses.


We had such a fun time. London loves ice cream, so I took him to get his favorite chocolate chip ice cream 🙂 he was so happy! Julien also enjoyed his first taste of Ice Cream and he loved it !!!


My visit with Charlie was a very good one , she was very excited to share the good news of today , she may be transferred to a non ICU room as soon as tomorrow, we shall see if tomorrow she is in a new room, that is exciting because she will have a shower in that room, and also tomorrow she will no longer need air drying:)! Just regular wound care, and no more protective gear will be needed to enter her room , yes ! Think he is moving fast and I'm in the right direction, we are beyond grateful!


We watched a very sweet movie called the Healer, and it was the kind of movie I needed today .


I started to listen to the Book of Joy and I am just learning so much!


One of the meditations I will be doing tonight is about, is there Pain without suffering? Can we experience pain and not suffer ? Or are both interconnected? I would love to hear your opinion on Pain and Suffering.


May God Bless You!

Cheering on Charlie. 

On Friday, September 10th, Charlie Anne Xavier was in a horrific and life-changing accident. Though she’s surprising her doctors and nurses daily with her incredible strength and resilience, this road to recovery will be an incredibly long one.
