Hi, just wanted to take a few minutes to give you a short update on Ada.
By yesterday morning (Friday morning), she deteriorated a bit more and during the day slipped into unconsciousness. So now, she is no longer able to interact with us.
She received the Sacrament of the Sick and Communion on Thursday and we have had a number of prayers in her room.
The staff at MSK is doing a great job in helping us care for her. We took a lot of the medical "stuff" that no longer serves any purpose out of her room and brought in roses and music, they matter a lot more now.
Mari has come up from Miami and so now it is Luli, Evelio, Mari, Jose and me at her side. I am heading back to Chicago late this afternoon. I know that I leave her in the best of hands and the business of living always goes on.
I will post again when Ada takes the last step in El Camino or if there is any other major development.
Thanks to all of you for the wonderful comments, prayers and emails. I read a few of them to Ada yesterday. I don't know whether or not she can hear them but I chose to believe that she can. Both Ada and her family truly appreciate them.
