Less than a week

Many of you may be following the posts that Sharon has been putting on Charlotte’s Facebook page.  She is home, doing well, considering the frustration at being unable to eat or communicate very well.

Always a little defiant, Charlotte insists on drinking through a straw instead of being fed with a giant syringe.  She has been drinking Carnation instant breakfast and liquid yogurt and applesauce through a straw.

She goes back on Friday for a surgery on her lips, and she’ll have a brand new smile.  They’ll also do some work on her nose, she’s only expected to be in the hospital until Sunday after this.  On the 30th, she’ll have her final nose surgery.

She still wants to get her ear next summer, and it’s completely her choice.  She’s bold and brave and wants this all over with.

  1. I just read the article in the Press talking about todays surgery. I love to see the sparkle in your eyes Charlotte. You are such and strong young lady. Keep your spirit up, I am praying for you and your family.

  2. Charlotte you are so beautiful and I can’t wait to see you after you recover from your surgeries! I still anticipate meeting you and giving you a huge hug! You are such an inspiration to so many people! you have no idea how many people you have helped along the way with your bravery! So many little children are terrified to have surgery and you have such a positive attitude about life! I know they all look up to you! Even many adults are not as brave as you Charlotte!
    Keep being an amazing young lady and you will see the rewards!
    Love you,
    Kim Gibson
