Day 326 | AUGUST 02, 2022
Good evening, Friends. Today is day 326 of our new and fantastic life!
Today I tried to sleep in, but I was up by 8 am; it was nice to wake up in a hotel, but as I showered, I was thinking, no matter how nice or how beautiful a place is, to be there alone and without my family is not enjoyable.
I had breakfast with a good friend, and it was nice to catch up and bounce back some ideas.
Around lunchtime, I went to Patch to take some drone shots, and it was nice to see the changes, but I also noticed that I was avoiding the pavilion area (where the accident happened).
Upon my return to town, I had an appointment to get a suit for my sister's wedding in September; that was a pleasant experience, and I enjoyed sharing my story with the tailor and listening to their trauma story, beautiful conversation.
Charlie had a busy morning; she was taken off the IV meds this morning and is adjusting to being without.
She had an emotional interview with VCU media, received communion, and visited with Father Nick.
Tomorrow is the big day; Charlie is returning home once again.
I don't have a specific time yet, but she may be discharged early afternoon.
I also secure an appointment with the best hand surgeon at UVA, Dr. Bobby Chhabra. Thank you for all the help in getting this done!
Today at 5 pm, as I was seated in my beautiful hotel room, I decided that I wanted to go home to be with my boys and my mom, she is leaving in 2 days. I wanted to spend time with her, so I got my stuff and checked out early, I had a fantastic birthday and a second day of quiet, but I am happier amid my crazy busy life; I love my family!
Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
I am so grateful to God for once again bringing Charlie home!
Have a good night!
Please pray for a safe discharge for Charlie!
