He was fine at 2:00pm when I saw him. I never just hang around at my parent’s house for no reason. I did today. Looking back, right at this moment, I regret that I didn’t hug him good bye when I left a couple of hours later.
My mom called me from her cell phone at 6:15 tonight. I knew immediately that something was not okay and when I answered “What’s wrong?” I heard my mom just say the words “Your father, somethings wrong, a stroke or a heartattack. I just don’t know. The ambulance is here. They’re working on him. Can you come now? Come now!”
There is no other awful image I would wish on anyone than seeing the man who raised you, the smartest man you know and love with all your heart get shocked. I got to see times 4 and 5. My mother had to experience all 5.
If you are the praying kind. Even if you aren’t the praying kind, but think that some good thoughts would go a LONG way, please send them. He needs all the help he can get.
