My mother passed away June 2009 from Stage IV uterine cancer. My sisters and are trying very hard to deal with our shock, anger and disbelief. (She was diagnosed in Feb and 4 mos later was gone) We've made progress but it's still hard. Yesterday, my supervisor, whose mother was diagnosed with Lymphoma back in July or August of this year, told us the good news that her mother's pet scan this week was clear. Stage IV lymphoma in the bone marrow and now clear. She said, "I guess all those prayers and well wishes really worked" I just felt myself bristle. Don't get me wrong, I am glad her mother is doing well. But what about my mother? What about al the prayers and well wishes. What about the prayer chains I joined and the fact that my mother was a devout Catholic that never missed Sunday mass and prayed the rosary in bed at night. Is God playing favorites? That's how I feel. No fair playing favorites God, no fair.
