Day 288 | JUNE 25, 2022

Good evening, Friends, today is day 288 of our new and amazing life!

Today we planned to have a fun day, and that we did.

The boys didn’t wake up early today 🙂, so I woke them up around 8am.

We had breakfast and by 9:45a we were on our way to the pool!

We have a pool in our community, and it is a short walk from our house.

Charlie always loved the water and so our boys, well London more so than Julien at this time 🙂

Me and the boys played in the water from 10am until Noon, we had so much fun! And Charlie watched us from the shaded area by the pool.

I think of the day Charlie will be able to swim in a pool or at the Ocean. I know it will be a while, but that day will come.

On the way back, Julien fell asleep in his stroller and London rode back in the back of Charlie’s chair. He loves it!!

Lunch was quick, and the boys were tired, but Julien did not continue his nap after lunch 😞

Charlie had wound care today, and I worked a little on the book in the afternoon.

I also played with the boys in the afternoon, and by dinner time I was tired.

I am not proud of my behavior during dinner, I was just tired, and child care is not my strong suit, I do struggle with my patience more often than I would like.

I guess I do have a lot in my mind, but I don’t want to use that as an excuse.

I know I let Charlie down tonight, and it is a weird reminder that this was my attitude on the night before the accident, and I really don’t want to continue to behave like this.

As we prepare to have Charlie back at the Burn Unit, to endure multiple surgeries, incredible pain, I am reminded that I also have work to do, I have to take a deep look inside and reflect on my own imperfections.

Tomorrow, we will be attending Mass, it will be the first time that Charlie goes to Church since the accident, and she is very excited for it!

Thank you for your support and please continue to pray for our family.

May God Bless You!

Dear Andre, please do not beat yourself up for your imperfections, we are only human after all. You are struggling with a horrific family tragedy while managing so many emotions and so much responsibility! So rather than berate yourself, be proud of the great father you are and the wonderful husband you are whom your sons and Charlie love dearly! And I agree, Charlie looked absolutely beautiful in her dress during your special night out!! So happy for you both! 💗

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.
