It all came to a head early this year and we nearly lost her. She was near death when she was admitted to the hospital sometime in January. After my overseas trip I had to dash home to Baguio City, Philippines after my brother told me about her situation. She gave me a chance to show her my love and care by letting me nurture her back to health. It also united us her children as we all came together from other parts of the world to be with her. Mama had 8 children and 7 are still here alive and kicking, so to speak.
Mama is responding well to her chemotherapy, is back to her normal self and is keeping up with her food and medications.
Happy Mother's Day Mama Lourdes (Unding to her close family and friends). May you have decades more of Happy Mother's Days to come. God bless you and I love you!
