Day 168 | FEBRUARY 25, 2022
Good Evening Friends, today is day 168 of our new and amazing new life !
Today was a very good day 🙂
When I arrived at the hospital today, Charlie was just finishing her lunch, she had a busy morning, with visitors non stop, now that her discharged date is getting close , a lot of the nurses and hospital staff are coming by to say goodbye, and I am lucky enough to witness some of those goodbyes, and it is impossible to not cry, the absolute love that Charlie is receiving, now I can see more clearly, She has an absolutely gift to make anyone feel loved and comfortable, I am hearing so many stories on how Charlie has inspired them, and how much she has planted in their hearts, it is amazing to see it.
We had very little time to even talk today, since there were so many visits, and tonight we received the visit of Dr. Feldman, her surgeon, was so happy to say goodbye to Charlie, we talked for about 40 minutes, we laughed and cried remembering our journey together for the last 6 months!
We even talked about how he said she would be at the hospital for at least 12 months once she first arrived , and now to know that she is leaving in 6 months, it is almost surreal!
I apologize to him, for the few times that I made demands and argued with him, he also complemented both of us, for the love towards each other and for my fighting spirit to protect and advocate for my wife, and the most humbling moment is when he told Charlie that he never met a family member more devoted and intelligent than me , he said Charlie , you are one luck girl 🙂 , to which I replied, no doc, I am one blessed man 🙂, we all smiled at it .
Today was a big day. Charlie was able to stand up and take a few steps with the aid of her PT team and a machine. It was an emotional moment to witness, since we were told that she may never walk
Yes she is not walking yet, but today's first step is the first steps of an incredible journey of rehabilitation ahead of her ! Please continue to pray for her strength.
Charlie asked me to order gifts for the burn unit staff, so we end up ordering, custom YETI cups and some other gifts for the staff, and Charlie has been distributing the gifts today, and yes, we are 95% confirmed that her discharge into rehabilitation will be in Tuesday, we just don’t have a time yet.
I have mixed feelings, I am beyond happy, grateful, excited, scared , fearful, almost simultaneously!!
This next chapter is a big one and we are so excited to get it started!
I am so grateful for your continued support and prayers.
May God Bless you
