A CONTINUOUS TEXT MESSAGE FROM AN AILING BROTHER
I have received contineous text messages from the hospital bed of my younger brother. i gues my kid brother is trying to reach out to me and i to be part of his life and miseries in life and challenges as well to overcome his illness. i am blogging the entire conversation:

Kuya,

(a polite word for an elder broter coming from a young sibling)

i have already finished 18 dextrose bottles from the time i was taken out of the intensive care unit. i have not been given any solid food, but ok with me, i know they are doing everything for me. they have already started giving water to me thru the mouth, but i still have tubes connectd to me.



Phillip,

there is nothing in this world that i want than to see you happy and well. think of the times you always come to hongkong and boracay with your family. that was a kodak moment. get well and listen to your doctors carefully and follow them so that u will be out of the hospital soon and will be home. this is your second chance in lif and i am very proud of you fighting that dreadul illnes that has befallen you. get well and see your son fly an airplane on his own and you will know the greatest feelings, because this is also your achievements. just think always that i am there besides you, giving you a big hug, and telling you how much I LOVE YOU!


Kuya,

My doctor told me that i still have to undergo chemo theraphy because there is still extended tumor inside me.i hope i will be able to overcome this, for my children.


Phillip,

You will overcome everything if you just concentrate your mind to it. try to think of your chemo as a regular checkup. then think about your daughter as a full grown lady now, graduating from college and then finally you are walking her down the aisle and will be given to her man in marriage. all of us are there, with all the smiles and you as the father, proud and happy on this special occassion. so try to challenge your illness so you will be able to see all these things that will be happening into your life.i am hugging you and letting you feel my love and affection. keep well my young brother.


Phillip,

i would like you to know that my entire family is praying for you. we will always put you in our hearts. this is the time for you to be brave and challenge your sickness. be brave and let this be to be mind over illness. still with our love, we pray for you.
