caller Id, Mom: "do you have room in your car for me?" crying!
me "room to go where?"
her "Philip's graduation."
me "didn't know I was going!" She hangs up, no we know where Garrett gets it.
I call my brother, "Why is mom calling me crying before my coffee has finished brewing?"
"turns out she wants to come to my graduation, even though she probably doesn't have enough oxygen for it."
"well, you never invited me, and she thinks you did."
"I told you."
"Yes you did, but I don't have a time or a location. So I figured we would go see John at work, see if Alex will tolerate being backboarded and collared before training on THursday."
So I call my mother back, and like a freaking teenager, I get the answering machine, my message is not kind.
"Of course, the machine. Apparently I was invited to the graduation, but never given a time/location. Apparently I am picking you up at 10, and not doing any of the stuff I had planned."
One portable oxygen cylinder will last 2 hours. I don't know if she will be able to sit though graduation. Which was why Philip wasn't going to have her come. As the amount of oxygen in her bottles is a major player in why she won't go to the damn store for herself.
