Day 284 | JUNE 21, 2022
Good evening, Friends, today is day 284 of our new and amazing life.
Today I woke up and felt a little less overwhelmed, Actually I felt good.
When I got downstairs Charlie was not awake, so I went to check on her and she was not feeling well.
She had difficulty sleeping, and her stomach was cramping and she had a headache, poor Charlie was not well.
The first thing that came into my mind, withdraw, I remember once at rehabilitation the time she felt very sick with a cold like flu, and since then I have done extensive research on opioids and withdrawal, so it was clear that we had a problem.
After speaking with Charlie, we realized that she ran out of one of her medications last nights and that was the cause of her not feeling well.
Sadly, the reason why she ran out was because the pain management practice that Charlie went to never sent the prescription to the pharmacy as she was told on the day of her appointment.
Luckily Charlie’s rehab doctor is amazing and came in to her rescue and managed to call in a prescription and by 5pm, Charlie had her meds back and by 8pm, she was symptom free and feeling much better.
Charlie and I have had conversations about the Opioid crisis, it is absolutely heartbreaking to know how many people are exposed to very powerful pain meds, and so many does not have the support and resources to come off from the opioids, and today is an example of how things can go south if there is no support, we are beyond grateful for her doctors.
Even when not feeling well, Charlie didn’t stop being the amazing mom that she is, she took the boys outside of our house and played with them for an hour or so.
The boys are loving having a mommy home and baby Julien is really connecting with her more and more each day.
Today for the first time, Julien became jealous when London was seated on Charlie’s lap. Just the cutest.
I am grateful for today, it was not easy to see Charlie suffering today, but I am so thankful that her doctor was able to help her with her meds.
Thank you for your continued support, and please pray for God to give us strength.
May God Bless You.
