What a strong woman my grandmother is. Here’s a short clip of her, smiling despite her sickness. This was the day after she learned she had stage 4 lung cancer. Sigh. I miss her terribly. It has been exactly 42 days since she left us.
I knew she was trying to stay strong for us. She wanted to keep fighting. Her body weakened each day but her willpower was just.. WOW. Every day was struggle but it wasn’t enough reason to give up. She was given 4 months to live, yet she survived until her 8th month.
Look at her.. Is this a portrait of a person who has cancer? I love her smile.
My nephew, Gab, couldn’t sit still for a photo. He tried to wriggle free of Lola’s grip here. She also loved the little critter to bits.
Haay. Excuse me, I need to blow my nose.
