Day 286 | JUNE 23, 2022

Good evening, Friends, today is day 286 of our new and amazing life!

Today I woke up with London in my bed. I guess he got scared with the storm last night and made his way into bed.

I woke up before baby Julien did, so I was able to shower before the boys were up. When that happens, I am able to start my day on time!

Breakfast made for the boys and myself, Charlie came out once we were finished, she had a busy day ahead of her with PT and wound care.

I also had a very busy day at work, insurance audit was the name of my game today.

After working for a few hours, it was time for lunch. I waited until Charlie was home around 1:50pm. My mom had made one of Charlie’s favorite dishes, “Arroz ao Forno”.

Charlie’s wound care lasts 3.5hrs, and it is painful, but Charlie as usual doesn’t complain.

Right at 5pm, Charlie texted me, family fun time outside now!

I made my way outside, and Charlie was surrounded by few of our neighbors, even before the accident, Charlie always had a lot of friends and she loves people 🙂 We enjoyed the end of afternoon weather, it was a warm day, but at 5pm, there was low humidity and the sun was just warm enough, the wind gently rolling in, it was just perfect!

We stayed out with the boys, until 7:40pm, Friends came and visited, Neighbors and dogs, it just felt so natural and mundane to be outside as a family, and when I just took a second to take all this in, I was reminded of how blessed we are, how amazing is to have Charlie alive and here with us, God has given us a true miracle and for that I am so grateful!

The boys had so much fun playing outside, and baby Julien decided that he wants to ride London’s bike now 🙂, he is just like his mommy, very independent and fearless.

London was the same way. He learned to ride a bike without training wheels by age 2 and 3 months, I have the feeling Julien will be following in his footsteps, we use balance bikes to train our boys.

Charlie is mesmerized by how adorable our boys play with each other, and the boys love to have their mommy back!

Charlie had a good PT session; she continues to work on her range of motion and improving her drop foot.

I would like to thank you for once again being on the bestselling list on Amazon, we are so grateful for your prayers and support!

Tomorrow is an exciting day, it is the day People will arrive at the Newsstands, be sure to get your copy, rumor says that People May sell out in Charlottesville!

Thank you and please continue to pray for our family, The journey to recovery is a long one and we are just starting it.

May God Bless You!
