The ceiling stared back at me in silent horror. Afraid to sleep, afraid to speak, barely able to breathe.
“Why doesn’t the phone ring? What is taking so long?”
It was a parent’s worst nightmare. Unexplainable illness, uncontrollable vomiting, unconscious child. As the seconds painfully tick by, we lay there, fully clothed, bags packed, ready to jump into the car as soon as the insurance company says “go.” 10pm… 11pm… 12am… 1am… 2am… It was enough to drive anyone stark raving mad.
“Oh God, help! Save our boy! Please, Jesus! Don’t let him die.”

Don’t you just get tired of being emotional and having tears brimming just below the surface? I am so tired of it. This has been quite the year of being super emotional and having to deal with it… daily.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I’m emotionally immature, or even emotionally constipated, I’m just feeling EVERYTHING.
