Never A Good Time

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.

Agreed.
Hope he recovers quickly.

You are right, there never will be a good time. I'm glad you were close and able to be near him.

You're absolutely right, there never is. I hope he recovers quickly and that time waits a long, long time ( :

Oh, my goodness!! I'm so glad to hear he is doing better. We will keep him in our prayers.

Sorry to hear about your dad! But so happy that everything turned out okay. It's always going to be hard. It's one of the many things I can't even think about.

Our dad's are our first superheros and they should just never be anything but strong and powerful.
