Day 345 | AUGUST 21, 2022

Good evening, Friends. Today is day 345 of our new and fantastic life.


I woke up around 2 am and could fall asleep again at 4:30 am. Around 7:30 am, London woke me up, and I decided to get in the shower and start our day. I came downstairs with the boys around 8:15 am, and to my surprise, Charlie was still asleep, so as her aunt, they stayed up late last night catching up.

I decided to treat us to breakfast, and I grabbed the boys and went to Cou Cou Rachou, a local French bakery, and they didn’t disappoint; London was so excited about their pastries I let him choose one, and I ordered a few plain croissants, and a baguette to take home.


We had a very European breakfast today, and shortly after Aunt Laurie left, we are so thankful for her help and visit.


The rain kept us mostly inside today; of course, it didn’t help me much; I am still dealing with my numbness.


Charlie had a good day, we watched a couple of Disney movies with the boys, and in the afternoon, Charlie met with some of her mom’s friends at a local winery for their book club meeting. It is just amazing to see Charlie starting to socialize. I know how much joy this brings to her!


Tomorrow, we have a momentous day; Charlie has her appointment with her rheumatologist, and we have so many questions and expectations; it could be a massive improvement to Charlie’s mobility, but it also could not; we will only know after this appointment, please pray for good news tomorrow!


I have decided that tomorrow, I will do my best to return to a place of gratitude; I have dealt with incredible negative feelings this weekend, and the guilt took the best of me, but tomorrow I will reclaim my mind, and I will find my way back to be grateful! Charlie is grateful, and she inspires me!


Thank you for your encouraging words; it means a lot to me to see how many of you are still here supporting us.


Below is the boy’s routine of giving mommy a good night kiss after book time.


Thank you for your prayers, and May God Bless You!

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.
