Day 263 | MAY 31, 2022

Good evening, Friends, today is day 263 of our new and amazing life!


Thank you for your incredible words of support and compassion towards me, you have no idea how much your words helped me, and I am so grateful!


It is amazing how so many people that don’t know me personally, are able to show so much compassion. One may say that our story inspires you, but I can also say that your words comfort us. It is a mutual exchange and I am so grateful for it!


Today was a better day, I woke up much less overwhelmed and we had a good morning, the new Au Pair fit right in with our busy schedule and the boys were out the door after breakfast for a fun day outside!


I went down to my office to work for a few hours before I dedicated my time to be with Charlie. We head out to our first OT appointment after lunch at UVA, but to our surprise we were told that the appointment is not until tomorrow! Oh no! How could this be?!


Somehow the miscommunication happened between our insurance and me, and we wasted a trip to UVA, but it was ok, we were able to reconfirm the other appointments, so we can be sure to not get confused once again.


Once we returned home, it was time for my therapy and God knows how much is needed for today's session, it absolutely made me feel better.


Charlie spends the afternoon talking with her aides and our new au pair, she is already getting them to talking with her 🙂


One of our friends and neighbors offered to take the boys for a play date, so Charlie and I could have some quiet time for dinner, and it was great to have a nice time to talk with Charlie. We had a delicious dinner brought to us by a generous friend, and we had a great time together.


Things are starting to fall in place, this week and the next one will be the time to adjust our schedules, and after that I think, we will start to feel better, off course we will have challenging days, but at the end of each day, we just have to remember how far we have come, and when we focus on today, we have so much to be thankful for!


Yes, it is overwhelming and hard, but God has given us the miracle of life and a second chance, and I know he doesn’t want us to be unhappy and sad, he wants us to be grateful and happy!


Today I choose to say Thank you! We are beyond blessed with our community!


Thank you and 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.
