Game was great. Nice weather. We won.
As we were leaving the ball park my son took a phone call. Dad’s in the hospital. He passed out at his brother’s house.
My son changed his plans and went to be with him. My daughter and I stuck to our script. She starts work today and I have commitments at home. Also, she’s too young to make a decision like going to the hospital on her own, or so she thinks.
I’m unwanted. I’m sure the first phone call he made, or had someone make, was to her. A couple of thoughts go through my head: Some people can’t stay conscious, and, this is not about me. Neither statement I try on fits the situation precisely.
Very awkward, and I have a hard time saying…
