Day 79 | NOVEMBER 28, 2021
Good Evening Friends, today is day 79 of our new and amazing life.
Today I just could not wake up on time to go to church. I do feel guilty about it, but my body just needed the extra sleep, sometimes you have to listen to your body .
Today our neighbors were kind enough to have a playdate outside with London and it was good to catch up with them, it has been a while since I had a seat on our front porch and watched our boys play, it just felt right today.
I arrived at the hospital and Charlie was done with her wound care and air drying , she was in her chair when I entered her room, Charlie was happy to see me as usual and we talked about the boys and about her day yesterday, I was curious to know why she was so sleepy, now I know why, she did a full body wound care and that is much more painful as one can imagine and she was asked if she wanted sedatives and she accepted, but boy she had no idea how they would knock her out, so from now she will think twice about sedatives Charlie said, just pain meds, she absolutely hates to lose control of her mind, I am glad that we were able to have such conversation and that we are in the same page, my advocacy on her behalf is stronger when she tells me what she wants.
As part of today’s conversation is noticed some changes on Charlie’s overall mindset, I am now on a mission to provide her with the psychological help that she needs, I will not go into the details as this is my Journal and not Charlie’s , but you can imagine the psychological challenges that she will face after this horrific accident, I do ask for your prayers on this matter. But regardless of any issues , Charlie remains positive and grateful to be alive. She is an incredible human being and like all of us, she is vulnerable and needs all the help she can get , and she will , I can rest assured of that. I already secured a lip reading specialist in case the hospital does not have one , so we can start her therapy right away.
We are now waiting for the second blood culture to confirm her possible blood infection, I remain patient and not fearful, because even if she has a blood infection, thank God for the antibiotics, that she is already taking as a proactive approach, so we shall see in the next 48h what this second culture shows, thank you for your continued prayers.
Today was a good day, I am grateful to have the opportunity to talk with my wife everyday, even though I can’t hear her voice, it is such a blessing to have her here, I am grateful for my family and our incredible friends and our community, I could not been doing what I am without your help.
May God Bless You .
