I need to see a doctor this weekend to find out what really ails me. I’ve been having this pain below my tummy and lower back for several days now but it doesn’t go away despite my self-imposed bed rest.
I’ve been listening to this song and it gives me hope that everything will turn out okay..
I’m writing this with a heavy heart. My mother just informed me about the worsening condition of my cousin Cez whose story I wrote here. According to Nanay, my cousin’s breast cancer has spread to her brain. It deeply saddens me that after all the medical intervention to treat her breast cancer in 2010, cancer cells were not really abated but have spread to her brain. She has yet to undergo another set of chemotherapy for this.
Cez and I grew up like real sisters. She’s my first cousin from my mother’s side of the family. We attended the same school and have several common friends. Although we argue on a lot of things when we were younger, I still look up to her as an older sister because I guess she’s wiser and practical than I am.
I don’t know if I can put on a brave face when I see her, but knowing myself I would surely cry.
I may not ease her pain, but I can say a prayer for her healing. If anyone reads this post, may I also request you to offer a prayer for my cousin. Please include her in your prayer…thank you…
I’m not a regular church-goer or pray as often as religious people do. But I believe in the power of prayer. There are several instances in the past that my prayers have been answered especially when the intentions are for the health of my family. Lately, I have been praying for financial provision. As my friends know, my husband is the only person who works for us. But his salary is not enough to cover the education of our children. I also contribute through the earnings I get from blogging, but it’s not a Great deal compared to the earnings of my blogger friends. I only have a few weeks to raise the resources that I need for the kids’ enrollment. I believe in the power of prayers. And so be it.
