I flew out of Singapore Friday, 4 July, hoping to see mom before she dies. She received word that she had cancer 2 weeks ago and she is declining fast. It will take over 28 hours to get to her. Because of the international date line I fly out on Friday morning and will arrive about 10 pm during the 4th of July fireworks. She has gone down so fast and I'm without phone or Internet service, I will not know until I land in Medford Oregon if mom will still be alive. I want so much to be able to feel my mother's arms around me one more time but it is not to be.
