Day 299 | JULY 06, 2022
Good evening, Friends, today is day 299 of our new and amazing life!
Today we return to my journal entry 🙂
This morning one of our friend’s, offered to pick up baby Julien at 7:20am and keep him until 11am, to give a break to VoVo.
Normally Julien wakes up around 5am, but guess what time he woke up today?
7am and only because I went to wake him up, yep the one day he has to be awake early, he doesn’t:)
Once Julien left, London was still in bed and VoVo was getting ready.
I made my way into our kitchen, I called Charlie and when she answered, I said good morning! Let’s just take it all in, the silence in the kitchen was something that I haven’t experienced in a long time, it was so refreshing! We both laughed.
Charlie had a very good day, she met with her surgeon and they discussed in detail tomorrow’s surgery, Charlie will undergo tomorrow morning hopefully a surgery to collect donor skin from her head and back, that autograft that will be used to cover the open wounds, there is a chance that not all wound beds may be in optimal condition and if that is the case, the doctor will not apply the autograft and instead he will excise the wound once again.
That means that this will not be the final surgery to cover all her wounds, and tomorrow Charlie will likely have her head shaved once again, she is at peace with it, she knows that her hair will grow back.
Today I had a very special visit with Charlie and we also had a friend joining us, and I am so grateful for our conversation. It is just amazing how when we slow down and because we are aware of our surroundings, we are able to be sensitive to ours and other’s feelings.
This morning, London was so excited his first tooth came out, and he is so happy! Well tooth fairy, please be good to London tonight;).
I would like to remind you that the only limitations in your life are the ones self-imposed! Be bold and dream big!
I also would like for your prayers, we ask God to protect Charlie and bless her team of surgeons, nurses during her surgery tomorrow.
I must confess that I am anxious for tomorrow’s surgery, even when it is surgery number 60, I believe that feeling of what if something happens is always present, the difference now is that Charlie has an amazing track record!
May God Bless You!
