Early this morning the mobile rang and woke us up. My mind immediately started racing. Who could it be? Had my mother in law had another fall? Did we have to travel back home? It also reminded me of all those phone calls I received when I was on call in my cardiac nursing days. I hated being on call I always slept poorly anticipating a call. It also reminded me of the days when the children were teenagers when I received the call to pick them up from their social outings. I was usually already asleep as have never been good at late nights. Fortunately this mornings phone call was not that unexpected as we knew my mother inlaw was waiting for the ambulance to take her to the hospital. Nothing serious and no bones broken. Managed to go back to sleep for a little while. Peace!
