a false alarm

now i know that this story may not be funny to some, i don't mean to be inconsiderate but it did lighten the mood alittlte.....
yesterday, was my thursday quilt class, was happy to see everyone again & aaahhh the awesome quilts...
came in with my fresh bread & fresh eggs for everyone.... showed off quilts started chit chating & i received a text from greg.... now his mom passed away last april & his dad's health hasn't been good for along time and has been worsening....greg has been stopping by more frequently to visit...anyway i received this message "at dad's again, not well"....i was going to type a note back, but was finishing listening to someone's story and my phone popped out another message very quickly "DD"....what i thought, greg can be very cryptic with his texts, my thought of course was his dad has died, typed back right away " i'm on my way".... no text back or phone, i know he's busy dealing & doing what needs to be done, got to go, grab my stuff & head out.... now i'm concerned for greg & know i need to hurry to be there for him...not traveling down the usual freeway, called my daughter katie, talking to her she thinks that's what greg meant too.... got twisted around three times but finally made it, rush to the front door... open it.... now this is just a second worth of time... but my eyes see greg & his dad, eyes closed on the couch, ooohhh! how sad my heart just breaks....then his dad's eyes pop open! i'm " hi carrol" .....
so the whole thing was a good false alarm, everyones fine for the moment, greg doesn't know how the "DD" got sent....i was emotionally prepared for the worst....but ended up watching a 1940's musical with them before heading on my way....what a roller coaster ride!

I guess we have the same humor because I had a good chuckle. Although my heart would have stopped the minute he opened his eyes and say hello. Glad everything was okay for you.

Sounds like maybe the big Guy in the sky was sending you a message to spend some time with hubby and his Dad?! Glad you were able to make it there safely and that it wasn't as awful as it could have been. Thanks for sharing your story!

I must have the same humor also, I bet it gave you a scare though. Oh goodness I think my heart would have exploded when he said hello :)
