On Monday morning my mother passed away. She had lung cancer twice. One in 2007 in her right upper lobe. She had a lobectomy. In 2009 it came back but she needed only radiation. Since then she's been clean. In 2013 she was diagnosed with aspergillosis. Over time though, this fungal ball, took a toll on her body. She was on voriconazole for two years. It beat up her body and her weight loss was just something unimaginable. The last two weeks of July my moms disease took a turn for the worst. The amount of blood that came out of her was something like I never seen before. She came down with a staphylococcus infection and was sent home on IV antibiotics. Naficillin and Voriconazole. She had a PICC line in. My family and I thought she would get better and everything would go back to normal. However we were very wrong. She declined quickly. The Saturday before she passed away she told me that I'm ready to go be with God and that her fight was over. I found her Monday morning with her eyes closed.
