Well Friday, the day we were supposed to leave, he calls me almost in tears because his mom was rushed to the hospital because she stopped breathing and she's still in the hospital an hour and a half away from us.
She also is supposed to have surgery next week to remove some spots on her lungs that they suspect is cancer.
Of course he's scared for his mom, he lost his father in his early 20s and he doesn't want to lose his mom. I totally understand and I'm there for him.
Because of this we cancelled our plans, he instead spent a good majority of the day yesterday and today up at the hospital with his mom. He came home and we cooked a special meal and spent the time playing board games but our vacation was cancelled.
I'm not upset, disappointed yes, but I understand and wouldn't dream of being mad at him for wanting to see his mom.
When I was talking to a friend and telling her what happened she gets upset and tells me he should've gone with me and waited to see his mom when she comes down here for surgery. I was truly surprised at her reaction, would you be upset if you were in my shoes? Or would you have understood why he needed to go see his mom?
