Another Sad Day for my Family

My brother has finally said goodbye to us. He never recovered. I am going to miss him dearly. He was only 47 and he left three beautiful girls and a loving wife behind. He's like a second father to me and my siblings. And my mom has always relied on him for support specially when my father passed away about 9 months ago. My mom is really struggling right now. Losing a husband and a son within 9 months would be tough to deal with no matter who you are. So we are all trying our best to console her while at the same time deal with the loss on the personal level.

Please pray for me and my family especially my mom.

A Tough Week

This week has been tough for me and my wife.

First we found out that my father-in-law has kidney cancer. My mother-in-law just passed away November last year because of cancer and once again we come face to face with this disease.

Second, my oldest brother suffered a major heart attack on Wednesday and he's now in a coma. Last word I got from sister today is that he hasn't responded to any medication and the doctors have already said that very dreadful phrase "they've already done what they can". So we are now just waiting for a miracle that my brother will pull through. My mom is having a difficult time dealing with this recent event because my father just passed away last year. She's tormented because she's having a difficult time convincing herself to visit my brother at the hospital. She said that she can't bear to see my brother in the same situation as my dad but at the same time she wants to see him to say something to him. She's afraid that she might not be able to handle it. I can only imagine what she's going through. Losing my dad and now most likely losing our oldest brother. I have to stop here for now. I'm having difficulty dealing with it as well.

If you happen to come across my blog, please pray for me and my family.
