Topic: My mother is now free
Dear cholangiocarcinoma family,
My mother, Ligia passed last Tuesday, April 14th at 10:30am. God heard our prayers asking for a fast passing, if He was not to cure her, to save her of anymore suffering. That morning, she had a little bit of fruit and suddenly she had an attack of phlegm that she was unable to cough up and quickly she fainted away. Luckily, her passing was very peaceful even though it sounds traumatic. When the ambulance arrived, they couldn't do anything, because she had signed a not resucitation form, this was a blessing, otherwise she would still be suffering.
I am very grateful for the gift that she was in my life and for all her love that will continue to live in my heart and of those who she touched.
I like to thank CC foundation for being there for me in providing support, encouragement and guidance. I'm sorry for not posting that often, my writing skills are not so strong, but I like you to know that all of you frequent or non frequent posters have been in my prayers all along this dark journey.
I like to share a poem that a friend of mine wrote in tribute to my mom's passing, which has helped me put the concept of death into perspective and has given me much comfort, perhaps it can help many of you that are also going through a similar loss.
I was a woman,
Now I am love.
I was a woman,
Who looked up to the sky, and wished to fly.
Now I am flight.
I was a mother,
And today I am creation.
I was voice, warmth and the resounding flow of blood within the borders of my body.
Now I am silence that rests in the coming and going of my beloved hearts.
I was that which reflected a shadow,
Now, I am intense light,
In the infinite space of my being.
I was a limit in time,
But today, wholeness embraces me,
and I embrace wholeness.
I was many things that come to an end.
Now I am infinite eternity,
Within each new and small sprouting of life.
I am who I always have been.
