Today we visited Mom and the kids had fun checking on Mom's heart rate. Everybody thought that was a cute gesture. My little kiddos prayed for their grandma too and talked to her. But since my Mom has a stroke
Little Adam and Sia enjoyed the Philippines despite Grand Ma Lucia's sad situation. My kiddos experienced wonderful things and they told me that they would love to come back again. The picture below is
It was hopeless to see Mom in her ventilator and all of those tubes around her body to keep her alive. My Dad and my brothers and some of our relatives who helped us taking care of Mom manually pump the Ambu mask for her. Because her body cannot take the pressure of the ventilator herself. The doctors told us that she cannot make it so everybody was waiting on her to give up her ghost. Her body was so weak and fragile. Some of my Mom's relatives already said their goodbye to Mom Lucia but my family and I still have hope.
And you know during the time that my Mom needed the doctor, she was violated. I said violated because according to my Dad, one morning a group of practice students came and took Mom from her room. My Dad asked why and they said they are going to operate Mom. My Dad doesn't know that she was going to have an operation that day. Then after a few hours, they brought Mom with many tubes in her body. My Dad's suspicion was those students came and practice on their dying patient. This is the reason I don't trust doctors and nurses.
My heart was aching to see my beautiful Mom in a bed like that. I remembered what I said to my Mom before I left the Philippines seven years ago. I told her that next time when we play scrabble I will make sure that I will win. My Mom didn't step high school but she is very good at scrabble games. Now she cannot do it, ughhhh.
One of my brothers called me, I can't remember who (we were at home in Bilis, the Philippines that Mom opened her eyes many times. We were all relieved, this means! God saw our tears and He heard our prayers that He will extend Mom's Life. Praise the Lord!

That is why those doctors and nurses in that hospital and to all who saw my Mom dying were so surprise that my Mom was sitting down, alive, and well to undergo her dialysis. God is so good to Mom and to our family. Praise the Lord! He answers prayers.
In June 2015, when my brother Lando called me that our mother was very weak, with severe kidney problems. She was against the idea of dialysis because she saw the fate of some of our neighbors who died after 5 years, some 7 and the longest life span is 10-15 years. One week before Halloween, this time I received an urgent call from my brother to come home urgent ASAP
Today, I gathered some cowpeas, sweet potato tops, and Egyptian Spinach fro our breakfast. I grow up from a very poor family in the Philippines which we do not recognize certain or specific food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Because of poverty,
I bought some cheap wood from Home Depot and make a wall for my garden. I used these bags of sand which been there for a year to hold the wood in place. I mixed up the original soil in our backyard with the regular all-purpose miracle grow garden soil from Home Depot.
