As her child lays in a coma her mother finds guidance and peace in the traditions and ceremonies of Native American spirituality. She is able to communicate with her daughter in a coma and ultimately finds the courage and strength to remove her feeding tube.
Chief Phil Crazy Bull, Lakota Nation , Ancestral Chief and Medicine Man said this about this story -
"Your manuscript was very moving, awesome in its imaging and overwhelming spiritually. Your story is one of belief and non-belief, anger, love, compassion and fear. In it the duality of life is expressed in the life choices and decisions made by all who seek the lessons of the Creator"
This is a true story any mother or father will relate to. It is also important to anyone searching for meaning in tragedy.
I completed the last two rounds of the Inipi and went out of the lodge. I ate some fruit and drank more water. There was one more final part of the ceremony to complete and that was to smoke the sacred pipe and share it with others and that would end the ceremony. While smoking the pipe I again saw Sharon lying on the grass outside the lodge. There were several black cats around her. Sharon loved cats and as far back as I remember she always had a cat as a pet.
