Mommy is the most generous, understanding, loving and hardworking person I know. Goes without saying that mommy never leaves a chance to provide for people and to help the society. She is a Municipal Social Worker & Development Officer of our town Santa Maria, Laguna and often there are people asking for rice and she jokingly responded that they are the reason why we have our rice milled. There are calls at midnight about a couple who fought, a minor who got into brawl. She never even takes a moment, gets up soon and heads straight to the police station to fulfill her duty. Always present in meetings, workshops and training. For my entire life till now, I've seen my mom as an idol, the one I want to be like. But deep down, I know I can't be. I can't ever be as kind as my mom.
June 26, it was a usual day for me. I had gone to a meeting in Manila while mom went for a presentation in the municipal hall. Moments after the presentation, Mommy had severe headache, threw up and lost consciousness. She was rushed to the hospital. Stroke. And within moments she was in coma. My cousin called me up while I was away and told me about it, entire world came crashing down on me and all my memories came right back in front of my eyes when in 2007 I lost my dad. I felt like here it is, AGAIN. I cannot take this anymore. But thanks to the Lord, she become stable and out of coma soon. The doctor said the recovery is fast. However, on seeing the CTA scan, It was found that she has brain aneurysim. I feel weak and helpless but at the same time I know I need to be stronger, at least for the sake of the fact that my mom named me hope. I won't lose what you've given me mom, I won't lose hope and I won't lose you.
She needs a brain surgery to survive. An Estimated 1 million pesos will be spent on her surgery. I thought I was ready for what she needed with the hospitalization. But I wasn't prepared for this. I feel helpless, I am annoyed and I blame myself.
Mom, has been giving assistance to anyone at anytime. I think that it time for her to be assisted. And this is not a matter of rice to cook or reports to submit. This is her life. She needs us to live.
Ang mommy ang pinaka-mapagbigay, maintindihin, mapagmahal at masipag na taong kilala ko.Bata palang ako social worker na yan munisipyo. Pansamantalang kinailangang magtrabaho sa ibang bansa at bumalik ulit sa public service.
Madalas may taong kakatok para humingi ng bigas.Bibiruin nya na buti nalang nakapagpabayo na sabay bigay.May tatawag sa hating gabi na may mag-asawang nag-away, nagsuntukang minor. Bangon agad at magpapahatid sa police station. Nung kumain kami sa rizal, may batang nanlilimos, iinterviewhin nya hanggang sa tinatawagan na yung SW para sabihing may batang di daw napasok kasi walang birth certificate paki-check. Laging present sa meetings, workshops at trainings. Magpapatulong mag excel at google form para maisubmit sa Region. Habang nasa ICU, sabi nya 8 AM daw ang oath taking ni Mayora. Pag sabado, pupuntang farm. Hindi rin nagkulang sa pamilya at kaibigan.
Nung Miyerkules, pagkatapos ng presentation.Nahilo,nagsuka at isinugod ospital.Na-stroke.Na-coma. Akala ko wala na. Bumalik lahat ng alaala ko nung 2007 nung nawala ang daddy.Ito nanaman.Ayoko na. Pero salamat sa Panginoon at naging stable.Mabilis nga daw sabi ng doktor ang recovery. Ganunpaman, paglabas ng CTA may nakitang brain aneurysim. Nanghina ako pero kailangang lakasan ang loob, para saan pa at pinangalanan akong Hope, para sa'yo, kay ugto at sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa'yo.
Ngayon, ooperahan na sya. Tinatayang 1 million ang magagastos. Akala ko handa ako sa mga kakailanganin nya kasama ang hospitlization. Pero hindi pala mapapaghandaan ang mga ganito. Naaawa,naiinis at sinisisi ko sarili ko.
Mommy, mahal ka namin.Tumutulo ang luha ko kapag naiisip ko kung gaano karami ang nagmamahal sayo.
Ang mommy sobrang tumulong. Walang sinisino at walang panahon. Trabaho nya yun.Pero higit pa ang binibigay nya.Ngayon, kailangan nya ang tulong natin.Hindi lang ito usapan na kung may bigas na isasaing o kung may report na isusubmit. Kailangan nya tayo. Kailangan nya tayo para mabuhay.❤️
