Call your parents
One of my closest friends is going through a family emergency...with one of their parents in the hospital as of yesterday morning. Not out of the woods yet but it's looking okay at the moment. It would've been fatal if they didn't get to the ER as soon as they did.
Scary stuff and my heart goes out to the family. Reminds me of my dad who I lost to cancer when I was 17. In many ways I'm lucky to have those last three months upon the cancer being discovered. I know at least three people who lost one their parents within hours and can only imagine how much harder that would've been.
Yeah I'm calling my mom today. Sorry to get all deep and shit.
[Update: the parent is now at home and itching to get back to work already, so all will be well]
