It's 10 o'clock at night,I'm comfortably tucked up in bed with a book and I get the following call.. Jess: " Hey Mom,what's up?" Me: "I'm sleeping,why?" Jess: how much money have you got in your bank account Mom?" Me: "None (private joke between the two of us) Why....? " Jess: "I'm in hospital getting stitches on my eyebrow..how does the medical aid thingy work?" Me" Hmm,why?" Jess: " I got banged on the head during a hockey practice just now!" Me: " You practice hockey this late at night at 'varsity?" Jess: " Yeah,but I need money or something Mom!" Me: "No, you just need your ID nr and Medical aid info." Jess: " oh ok,I'll phone you just now, Love you Mom!" Me: 'Be brave daughter mine, love you too!"
My heart is sore,my baby has to be on her own getting stitches put in her face in a faraway hospital!
I need to be there with ice packs and peanut butter cookies!
