22: Sunday February 6th, 2011 Today will be a day which will forever change all of our lives. The day we found out our Mother had Cancer. When the words came out of the Doctors mouth - it was like something in slow motion. I looked at my Mother as she sat there - a blank look on her face. I looked at my Brother - then back at her. What she said was - Well - ok where do we go from here? It took everything in me not to cry - not to run out of that room - not to scream out - "This can't be". But I looked at her and she was so strong - how could I look weak when she looked so strong. The Doctor said the words Brain Cancer - so matter-of-factly. He ordered more tests and as the Nurses came in with that look on their faces - there was my Mom with her ever-pleasant attitude - trying to be a comfort to everyone else. After admitting her into the Hospital for more tests - it was determined she had kidney cancer that had spread to her lungs and brain.
23: I stayed by her side the next couple of nights as she could barely get out of her bed. The nurse overdosed her with meds - and that night I slept by her side and enjoyed our Slumber Party - and as we talked all night long - I realized just how strong she was. My Mother moved forward with such a strong power. I saw her break down only once - and then I think she was determined not to let this thing get the better of her. She went forward with such grace and faith - I was so proud of my Mother. Day by Day she goes forward - always concerned about others and never complains- I look at her with awe and wonder - could I ever go through anything like she is with such will-power. I am so proud to call her my Mother. I am so proud of how she has chosen to battle this. I can only hope that one day I can be just like her. She is such a role model. I always thought I knew my Mother Well - up until February 6th, 2011 - I really did not. I love her with everything in my Soul. She is my Mother!!
27: Always a smile to brighten everyones day!!
28: Some of the best memories. . . .
31: Me & Yanni!!!!
32: A Tribute to the ones we miss!
34: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away!
