She is a beautiful, caring, and loving woman. Never hesitating to try to help others, especially family.
The most cherished thing I ever received from her was her time. She gives us her time and her energy, constantly and selflessly wanting us to succeed in any venture we attempted. She is always there.
She loves the mountains and outdoors, especially the trees. She loves cutting her own Christmas tree each year, cutting firewood, and picking mushrooms.
Georgia, is my mother.
Georgia has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments for an inoperable mass of malignant cancer cells on the wall of her brain. She has been doing very well physically through these treatments and this past week was quite upbeat, as they were halfway completed. She celebrated her 62nd birthday on the 28th of March, 2008.
Wednesday, April 2, 2008, Georgia was on her way to the hospital for her regularly scheduled radiation and chemotherapy treatment, just as she has been doing every weekday for the past three weeks. Before leaving for the hospital she claimed that she did not know the man, my father, driving the car. She could not recall what month it was, and was quite disoriented. Upon arrival for her appointment, her health deteriorated rapidly, her blood pressure skyrocketed and she had a seizure for the first time in her life. She was admitted to the hospital and a battery of tests commenced.
Currently, Georgia is heavily sedated, stable, critical and in the ICU. The outlook is not bright. She may have any one of three types of meningitis, tuberculoses, or something they haven’t found yet. This turn of events happened so fast that no one had time to think. If there is ever a time to appreciate those around you, the time is now. Please leave this post with a mission to tell at least one person you know how much they mean to you. Thanks…
