Heartbroken mother shares final moments of 4-year-old son’s battle with cancer
A HEARTBROKEN mum has spoken of the miracle goodbye she shared with her four-year-old son who said “I love you mommy” before dying of a rare form of cancer.
Just two months after Nolan Scully’s death his mum has revealed that he briefly woke from a coma, smiled and said he loved her before his death at a hospital in Maryland, America.
Writing on Facebook Ruth Scully said: “When I opened the bathroom door, his team was surrounding his bed and every head turned and looked at me with tears in their eyes.
“They said ‘Ruth, he’s in a deep sleep. He can’t feel anything’. His respirations were extremely laboured, his right lung had collapsed and his oxygen dropped.
“I ran and jumped into bed with him and put my hand on the right side of his face. Then a miracle that I will never forget happened…
“My angel took a breath, opened his eyes, smiled at me and said ‘I Love You Mommy’, turned his head towards me and at 11:54 pm Sgt. Rollin Nolan Scully passed away as I was singing ‘You are My Sunshine’ in his ear.
“He woke up out of a coma to say he loved me with a smile on his face! My son died a Hero. He brought communities together, different occupations, made a difference in people’s lives all around the world. He was a warrior who died with dignity and love to the last second.”
