Day 85 | DECEMBER 04, 2021
Good Evening Friends, today is day 85 of our new and amazing life !
I am really starting to like Saturday mornings again , it is the one day I am able to stay in bed and have the boys come in and watch some cartoons together, since there is no school, we can sleep in until around 8:30a or so, after breakfast I took London for his bi weekly haircut, this kid Loves getting a haircut, and he has been going to the same barber since he was 14 months old, just like me , we seat in the chair and we don’t say a word, our Barber knows exactly what we want:). It is such a bonding experience for me and London to go together for hair cuts, I can’t wait to bring Julien for his first cut in the next few months. I hope my boys will have a great memory of our trips to the barber, once they are older .
Today I went over to see Charlie a little earlier, since she didn’t have to air dry today, they have to wait 24h before air drying the CEA for the first time , so I got there before 1pm and Charlie was sleeping very peacefully, I waited until I was listening to my newest book, Can’t Hurt me by David Goggins , what a incredible story!
I am only on the 5th. Chapter, but I can already see some familiar decisions that he took and I have been taking on my own journey, and one thing that really made me think today was, it is not enough to survive, we must thrive.
That is the exactly mindset I am shifting into now, as Charlie continue to defy the odds, and maintain her upward trajectory, my mind is now starting to open up and my heart is now praying to God, to give me guidance and show me how I am going to lead my family to not only survive, but to thrive this horrific tragedy that has touched us.
I know based on God's own words , Romans 8:18 “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” He has a plan and it will be revealed, but I also must have the right mindset to be capable and worthy of living up to his plans.
The one thing I already know is that giving back is front and center of our new life, but I also know there is more needed to make this new life truly amazing, as Charlie heals and once we can really put our minds together, we will know what is the direction that our new life will take.
After an hour or so, Charlie woke up, and she was much less swollen today compared to last night. She was happy to see me, she asked if I was up to watch some TV, of course I said yes ! And we finished the 3rd season of Yellowstone.
Tomorrow Charlie will air dry for the first time , and this time around should be a little more comfortable, since she won’t have to lay on her side, she can just stay laying in bed.
Today our good friends took our baby Julien to take pictures of his smash the cake , he will be turning one very soon:), and the pictures were sent to me while I was with Charlie , and to see her eyes spark when she saw those pictures was priceless! Thank you Kiri and Elizabeth!! Charlie was so happy and asked me to say a Huge Thank you to you !
I am still so humbled by your incredible support and generosity, I will be asking you once again to share of you already donated or donate if you are new to the group, because as I have said before, any funds not used by Charlie’s medical care, will be donated or actually be used to start our own Charity and start our giving back mission. I will not rest until we hit the 200k mark, we are close ! I know you have the collective power to make anything happen! Look at the power of your prayers and positive thoughts! I am a firm believer that Your prayers have helped Charlie to survive and heal as fast as she is doing now.
Please take a moment and share or donate to Charlie’s Go Fund me ! Let’s reach the goal before Christmas!
Thank you and May God Bless You !
