Melit, is Mater et Magistra. Mother and Teacher. Mama and Ma’am. Yes, she is so simple that we can actually describe her in these two words. yet, each word contains the fullness of her life – there are only two groups of people in her heart: her pupils and her family. Her life revolves around two worlds: her school and her home. Now her body is confined to a hospital bed, but her spirit continues to nurture and teach us all.
This is Melit these days after surviving a major stroke, a major surgery called craniectomy, a minor surgery called trancheostomy, an ugly bacterial infection called Septicemia, and a major fight against hospital-acquired pneumonia. She is a survivor in life, and in sickness!!
