Scary News

Good morning. To be honest with you, I wasn’t going to write a post at all today. But then I figured that I may eventually have to explain my absence, since I tend to post every day, and I figured I would just share this news now rather than try to hide it and my feelings. Plus, maybe talking/writing about it will help me feel a little better as well.

Last night I received some scary news from my Mother: my Father had a minor heart attack.

He’s okay – he is in the hospital now and they have to perform a test on him to determine what caused the heart attack and figure out next steps. It may even be something that can be remedied through medication, but they need to first find the cause.

It has been very hard for me to hear this news in general, but also because I’m so far from my family. Two and a half hours seems like light years away right now. I want to be at the hospital, I want to be there to find out what’s happening right away, I want to be with my family. I feel like I’m not able to help my Father or my Mother at all.

So, that’s that. I’ll be waiting for a call from my Mom today to hear an update on the test. I’m relieved to know that my Dad is feeling much better and he even told my Mother to leave the hospital and go back to work yesterday (they own their own business), so I know he’s going to be alright.

Now all I can do is be thankful that it wasn’t a major heart attack, wait for more details, stay calm, and send love and good thoughts my Dad and Mom’s way. I apologize for the melancholy post – hopefully all will go smoothly and I’ll have some good news to report soon. Thanks for understanding and listening.
