Yesterday while he was at the hospital my father had a heart attack. I have been going back and forth today between trying to calm down because he's fine (they put in a stint and he might be able to go home tomorrow!) and getting upset all over again because he won't alway be fine.
I've been trying to figure out all day if there is a good age for your dad to get sick. Will I be this upset at 35? 40? 45? Will I ever be independent enough that the news will not be upsetting?
Nope. There will never be a good time.
