Emotion:: scaredscared

My father, who is in his 60s and has been using an oxygen tank regularly for over a year now, went into the hospital this evening with two collapsed lungs. He's currently intubated and on a respirator to help him breathe, and heavily sedated.

My mother is at the hospital waiting on word of exactly how bad the situation is... my dad's been in and out of hospitals for my entire life but I don't think I've ever heard her this shaken...

I may end up taking off of work early this week and driving out there earlier than I intended to...

I know I probably don't sound like I'm freaking out about this, but I think that's mainly because I'm in a little bit of shock still and I feel like I have to keep things together for my mom.

My father and I weren't very close for most of my life, and we only really started bonding again during the last couple of years. I feel like, now that I actually have a dad again, he's going to be taken away from me before I have a chance to show him that I do love him and care for him and that he's really an awesome father even though I had trouble seeing that when I was younger.

Dad, please be okay. I love you.

"He says
When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses have gone ahead
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change
My dear"

I'm so glad we spoke earlier and honestly right now I can' stop tearing up and shaking my head thinking "no". He is so tough and he has made it through before and this time isn't going to be any different. Please don't worry yourself sick okay... I love your daddy..he will be fine... <3
