12:59 am - The Kaiser Chief
Last Thursday morning, I got a call from my mom at, like, 7:30 or something. I had barely woken up. Why the fuck would she be calling me at this hour? Either she was calling me for something profoundly unimportant or profoundly important.

When I heard the tone of her voice, I realized it was the latter.

My grandfather had gone to the hospital the night before. And he couldn't breathe. And they put him on a ventilator. In the ICU.

"What?I" I said.

And then my grandmother couldn't breathe either so she was admitted.

"What?!" I said.

My mom was going to try to fly out as soon as she could. My aunt in Lubbock was flying in Friday night, and I was going to be responsible for picking her up. I should call my aunt and uncle in Belmont to see if they needed anything. And I should go down and see my grandfather in the hospital after work.

As soon as I hung up, I burst into tears.

I feel like it would be emotionally manipulative not to inform you straight-out that my grandfather does not die in this storyCollapse )
