As of today, September 20, 2007, Tito Albert leaves us for a better place. I still am in a state of shock so pardon if this post is brief. Just a few hours ago, my Dad and I were at the hospital. It was Tito Albert's wife, Tita Bel's birthday today so Dad and I brought some muffins and cheese bread for her. Tito Albert was smiling when we came to the room. He was alert. He had full control of his extremities. He was laughing and trading stories with us about what the heart attack felt like and how lucky he was to be alive. About how all the doctors were shocked that he was recovering so well. We talked about my plans to go to Vancouver. About how in Vancouver, taxes are high, but you really get a lot of benefits and see where you tax-money goes. About how he was able to hear from a lot of other relatives. About how he would have to start exercising, and dieting, and about how most likely this Friday, they were to discuss plans of checking out and heading home.
Once again, I extend my thanks to everyone who offered prayers for his recovery. And I thank all those who are willing to include him and his family in their prayers now.
Thank you again for sharing with us this time of grief.
