Day 72 | NOVEMBER 21, 2021

Good Evening Friends, today is day 72 of our new and amazing life!

Today is Sunday and as you know , it is always difficult for me, since I miss Charlie tremendously, especially today.

I was up very early today, baby Julien decided to wake up for good at 5 am. He is such a sweet baby that I have no problem getting up this early to spend time with him .

I decided to call for an update on Charlie around 5:30a, and I was told that she was back on the ventilator due to her CO2 level to be slightly elevated, not because she had any issues breathing, but to say that I was frustrated with that update is an understatement, not sure why but this update made me very upset and really frustrated, I had a hard time getting over the frustration.

I eventually made my way to the hospital after lunch and when I arrived Charlie was just finishing her air drying time, Charlie was awake and very happy to see me , she was still on the ventilator, but within 5 minutes of me being there, they were able to get her off the ventilator, but the doctor wants her to be off for 7 hours today, and back on tonight, I was given a very detailed medical explanation on why she keeps going on and off the ventilator and the role of the CO2 in her blood, and I am happy to say that I am less frustrated with this new detailed piece of information and I really appreciate the nurse that took her time to explain it to me in a very professional and educational way.

So, now we can expect Charlie to be on and off the ventilator for the next 3 to 5 days, until her lungs are strong enough to be able to not only intake air, but to also exhale CO2, which she should be able to be doing it very soon , once again I ask for your prayers.

Overall was another mixed emotions day for me, I am doing my best to keep seeing the positive and being grateful, but lately it feels like we have few steps back, I guess that's why they call it an emotional roller coaster.

I left a little early today in order to be home on time to give London a bath, read him a book and put him to bed, I am so glad that I was able to do that. London is such a sweet boy. Charlie was happy to see me leaving early to do that

I hope this coming week will be one filled with positive news and forward improvements, I wish you the same.

May God Bless You.
