i met the captain of the tennis team today. found out through a colleague that his mom had passed away on saturday. when i met him today, i asked him what happened and i had a wave of tear run across my eye.
his mom had found out 4 mths ago that she had stage 4 liver cancer. she had been on medication until 2 wks ago when doctors said she’s not responding to medication. then 1 week ago, they said she wont survive. they kept her on painkillers in the hospital. she passed away saturday, after the son visited her and reached home. he got the call then. he has a 14 yr old brother whom he said is not getting adjusted to knowing his mom will never be there again.
my student is a very nice good natured well mannered boy… i pray for strength to push through life.
cos i dont know if i can….
