The call continued…

I trackdown the number to the hospital and after several holds, I get transferred to ICU.  a nurse answers and informs me that yes, my mother is in critical condition.  I press her for more information but she states she can’t discuss a patient’s medical condition over the phone.  I explain my mother’s reason for being in that city and that I live hours away.  She then quietly says, if it were my mother, I would get here as quick as I could.  I say thank you and hang up. 

I call my sister and within an hour, she’s packed and at my house for us to leave.  My husband hugs me and tells me it will be okay AND we are off.
