Flori won the hearts of all who knew her. In her memory, we search for answers to preventable deaths from cervical cancer.
Flori spent the night at my mom's last night. They continue to astound me with their ability to understand each other with no knowledge of each other's language!! This afternoon, we brought her up to our little cottage on a lake in Michigan. We had hoped that a "change in scenery" might help her a bit but she could barely make it from the car to the couch. She's hardly eaten a few morsels today and continually vomits. I got her IV plugged in and she fell asleep in a few minutes. Randy and I looked at her tranquil face as she slept and we talked about so many things - no conclusions, more questions than answers.
It's still not clear to me how Flori and ourselves have come to be almost family in such a short time. Randy and I pray every minute that her suffering right now will mean a chance to watch her children grow up. Her faith continues to inspire me as does the involvement of so many wonderful people. Thank you all!
