Here is a question for the care givers, parents and love ones… when the phone rings at an unusual time and you see it’s your son or daughter or loved one who is fighting Sz,
Do you instantly think the worst? Do you feel a wave of dread or do you answer the phone normal and just hope for the best?
My sis and I went out for lunch and there were a lot of high school kids around… it’s early release day. So I used my sister’s phone and called my Mom to see if she wanted to join us for lunch…
On my sisters phone, I dial and my Mom answers… “Riley! What’s wrong?! Is J OK?”
Yes, I am feeling pretty good today in fact.
We called Dad too since the school he works at is on the same schedule. On my sisters phone I dial… My Dad answers… “Riley… hi, didn’t expect this… Is J OK?”
They came to lunch, but they were still asking, “Nothing is bothering you? Anything you want to discuss? Did you want to schedule and appointment for anything?”
When I said “No, I just wanted to have lunch with you guys.” Mom looked like she was going to cry.
Either my parents are in constant panic mode or my kid sis never calls just to say hi.
