I would be appreciative of any prayers for my mom. She has been fighting stage 3 Multiple Myloma cancer for a while now, and it has finally ran it's course. She came home Tuesday afternoon so that she could be with her family. It was difficult listening in on her Last Rights being given by the priest. (My mom is Catholic)
My sister and I found it comforting that after 4 days of her being completely out of it, last night she actually woke enough to focus her eyes on the two of us (Something she hasn't done for 4 days) and while she was unable to speak, she responded when we asked her to squeeze our fingers, and you could see the response in her eyes. About 10 minutes later that recognition was gone, and she slipped back into unconsciousness. I pray for her to quickly return her spirit to where it belongs, by God's side.
My mother was an incredible, giving woman who spent her career helping others who couldn't help themselves. She worked for the South Carolina Department of Health and Mental Retardation as a case worker, where she worked directly with those in need. She always gave selflessly, even when she was in need. The world was fortunate to have her in it.
