Unexpected emergency

5/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge 2013


The set theme was: C is for Calamity


I'd been mulling over possibilities for a "calamity" shot all week. I missed the dramatic incident of a bus on fire on one of the main roads out of town, but totally out of the blue I had my own real calamity on Friday when I phoned my 91-year-old father and couldn't get an answer. I tried again 5 minutes later, and this time he did respond, only to say that he had fallen. Thankfully my step-brother lives nearby and he and his wife sat with Dad while I drove up to his house (about 1 hour 40 minutes). By the time the doctor came, Dad was able to walk again and today he is fine and can't understand why everyone is making a fuss!


Anyway, this is my attempt to convey the frantic attempts to contact my brother before setting off on the long drive.
