Say My Name, Bitch
Coping

I just got a call from my mom and it wasn't a detailed description of the 27 little blue outfits she bought over the weekend, oh no, it was about my dad, who fell outside their house last night and is now in the ICU with a brain bleed and broken occipital bones and they think it's his heart but they don't know yet and anyway, I'm putting Noah in the car and driving up to PA just as soon as I can find my keys and maybe some clean underwear. PA is fancy like that, you know.

In other news, Noah is willing to keep his pants dry in exchange for spare buttons from my sewing kit. If that doesn't cheer you up a tiny bit even after the words "ICU" and "brain bleed" then I suggest you just start hitting the hooch right now.

Oh crap, sweetie, I am thinking/hoping praying for the both of you. Drive carefully.

And if he pulls through, email me and I'll see if I can talk my mother-in-law into donating Phillies tickets to you. We have four great seats in a handicapped section for Sunday home games. We can't get to all of them this year anyway--I think this is a good cause.

NTE

Sending all my warm fuzzy thoughts your way. May you all be as well as possible!
