Day 65 | NOVEMBER 14, 2021
Good Evening Friends, today is day 65 of our new and amazing life!
Today was the day for the benefit event for Charlie, Cheering on Charlie! It was an amazing day! I was amazed by how many people showed up to love and support our family! I can’t thank all the people responsible for this incredible event! It was beyond perfect! To see Patch full of families, kids playing and running around, dogs at the dog park, friends and families enjoying a beautiful afternoon with great beer and fantastic food! It was like a dream!
I was able to share video and pictures of the event with Charlie and she loved it! She was also surprised at how many people had come out! She had a big smile on her face !
Today was a powerful display of the love and support we have received and continue to receive from our amazing community and friends! I am so grateful for every single person that came out to Patch today! After this great event, I made my way out to see Charlie.
When I got to the hospital, Charlie was asleep. She had finished her air drying 2 hours before my arrival, I just took a seat next to her bed and watched her sleep.
Today, I was thinking about how much Charlie would have loved the event, how much Charlie would love to see the kids playing all over Patch, today I didn’t cry at Patch, I guess because of the overwhelming positive energy and love , but I would be lying if I didn’t admit that part of me was missing Charlie like crazy at Patch today, I would look around and imagine Charlie being there , I even imagined if the accident didn’t happened and we were there at a normal fall Sunday as a family! It was definitely a mixed feelings day, but overall the love and support kept me positive and grateful. But after such a wonderful event, here we are back to our reality and Charlie needs your prayers.
Charlie remains on the ventilator and her left lung still has fluid in, because of that she will remain on the ventilator longer than anticipated, so we need to pray hard that her lungs recovers quickly, because each day on the ventilator increases her risk of infection.
Charlie did her 4 hours of air drying , but she said it was way more painful compared to the last CEA, but she pushed it and made the full 4 hours
Having Charlie back in the ventilator and all the beeping back in her room, kind of give me a feeling of stepping back in time , but I know it is my mind trying to be negative, but I refuse to go there and I will remain positive and hopeful that Charlie will be off the ventilator very soon!
Today was an incredible day! Mixed emotions but I am so grateful for all of you !
May God Bless You !
