People who have the pleasure of knowing my sweet mom only have good things to say about her. She always has a smile, a hug, and plenty of love to share. She sees the best in everyone. She is the best Mee Maw in the whole world! She has always been active in the church, volunteering her time, and loves to read. She is also the strongest woman I know. She has been through more than most.
She lost her dad to cancer in 1995. After that her mom moved in with her and my dad. They took care of her until she passed away in 2008. Shortly after that my dad became really sick and we found out he had liver failure from being exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam. He passed away on May 31, 2010.
On May 5, 2011 my sister passed away from an injection a doctor gave her and died 30 seconds later. Less than a year after my dad.
She came to live with me and my two young boys and then she lost her home and everything she owned in October 2011.
In November 2011 we found out she had a spot on her liver, but she wouldn't have insurance for 6 more months. Except it wasn't 6 months like they said ~ it was a year. She now has stage 4 liver cancer, kidney failure, diabetes, and all the side effects that go along with it. Her eyesight is slowly getting worse. Mom was hospitalized November 11, 2013. December 26, 2013 they decided to try a new form of treatment that did not work but did shut down her kidneys. That's when the dialysis started. She was released from the hospital in March 2014. She has since been in and out of the hospital on a regular basis, ususally to have the fluid build up drained from her body.
