in recovery

maria was always in a hurry to get somewhere ...


we found out today that the surgeon thought  maria would not survive the operation ... and if she survived the operation - he did not think she would recover ...

this evening mom and my younger sister were at ICU helping maria eat her supper ... my sister combed maria's hair and they were thankful that AGAIN maria was defying the odds ... when they asked her a question, she was able to answer them ... and she definitely didn't want mom to leave, she wanted her to stay ... i take all those as positive signs ...

i just want to thank you guys for keeping maria in your prayers ... our times are in God's hands ... we all leave this world at some point ... yet - everything in God's time ... and for God's purpose ...

Dear Saija,
Maria has my deepest respect for having the willpower to get on getting on on these traumatic circumstances.
The famous Finish SISU must be a vital part of her heritage.
And a caring God who never stops loving her, or tell the doctors who's the real boss.
Mega hugs from Felisol
