So, as of right now my mom is no longer able to recognize who any of us are anymore. Her heartrate is steady in the 30’s, blood pressure is constantly rising, and she has endured several seizures recently. I know that many of you would question why I would photograph these things, and to be honest, it’s because having the camera in my hand and capturing the moments helps me go through this. The thought that I can never make a phone call just to talk to my mom about my day is earthshattering and knowing that my brother will have buried both of his parents before he turns 20 simply hurts. I had one bit of comfort before I made the 3 hour drive back home last night. My mom was talking to herself, and when we asked who she was talking to she told us that she was talking to my dad, or as she said “Sidney”. I want to thank everyone for the continued support and prayers, and especially Eddie Marroquin for going so far out of his way for me last night. I cannot say thank you enough.

I would love for my first blog post to be a happy one, but it’s not. On the day before Thanksgiving I recieved a phone call letting me know that the doctors are giving my mom less than a year to live. If you don’t know, my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year and it has spread quickly. They have opted out of chemo and are simply trying to keep her comfortable. Hilary and I spent yesterday in Lafayette with my mom and her boyfriend, Rob. I have promised and promised myself to take photos of my mom for the past couple years, and I’ve put it off and put it off. These are memories to me, and they are memories that I wouldn’t trade for the world.
