Is when you are on your way to work and your dad phones and all he says is to come home.
The not knowing, my Mum is ill and and when i got home she had collapsed on the living room floor, my dad dithered and it is amazing the clarity you can have when faced with that clear terror, things slot into place. Called an Ambulance and it is just like 2 years ago on 21st January when my Mum broke her hip and we spent all day in the hospital.
So here I am sitting at home waiting and always the waiting is worse, what hospital, will she be okay...it makes me feel physically nauseous, can do nothing trying to keep busy.
Hope the phone goes soon.
