It was about 8 years ago when it happened, I couldn 't believe that this disease could deprive me of my mother like that. A little backstory to this very mysterious quote is that my mom, at the present time has had 3 cancers and is now having a relapse of colorectal cancer. So when I was 4 years old when I first found out that my mom had cancer and it was very devastating at the time, and I wanted to spend as much time with her as I could. I still do, of course, but after 8 years I learned to deal with knowing that my mom has cancer. It always hurt me inside to know that my mom was in pain or at the hospital and I had an insatiable need to help her but I couldn 't, All I could do is sit and stare because I 'm not a doctor or a miracle worker or any of the sort, and it still
A young girl had her tonsils removed and became very sick afterwards, the cause was her lingual artery was cut during her tonsillectomy. She stated “My mom called the ENT office and the doctor on call (not the person who performed the surgery and not the person who suctioned out my throat) said that I had to go to the hospital so he could cauterize my throat.

After I apologized, which I didn 't really think I needed to do, I got yelled at for the 2nd time from my also crying grandma. Boy oh boy did I learn a lesson not to walk away without having complete attention of someone or cell phone.
My mom called to schedule me an appointment with the doctor and they were booked full, because it was a holiday. She called back in a different voice and said she really needed me to get in as soon as possible. At 11 a.m. they were able to see me.

S, 2009).

My “patience room studying” continued for another ten minutes before a nurse came out of the room calling my name. My father put down the newspaper he was reading and pointed to me and she managed to spot us from the large crowd that was present, we got up and followed her and she directed us to a room with a plaque posted front and centre on the door, reading “Dr. Hoffman, Neurology” . My father and I sat in the empty room and waited I told him I was nervous that something might be wrong and he replied “khoda nakoneh”, Farsi for god forbid.
