My Sister's Hands
This video was made by my mom's sister and is about my mother. There are so many remarkable things in it. Most touching is that on the day my mom came home from the hospital knowing that there was nothing else that could be done to help her she busied herself hemming my brother's pants. At another point she is showing her sister's how to use the serger while sucking on a fentanyl sucker (fentanyl is 100 times stronger than morphine and is used for palliative care for cancer patients). She just couldn't be slowed down by the cancer -- while it ultimately won -- she tried to get the most out of every minute of her life.
