That dreaded call...

Every time I get a phone call from my family in the Philippines especially very early in the morning scares me. The only time they call and wake us early in the morning is when there is some kind of emergency. So earlier this morning, at around 8, they rang the phone and I knew that there was something going on there. I was so afraid to call them back for I fear something has happened to my papa. He's been terribly sick and has been in and out of the hospital. 

Anyway, even though I was so scared to call back, I did not have any choice but to dial the number and see what's going on. I talked to my sister and rest assured there was some kind of a family tragedy. My sister told me that my uncle, my mama's younger brother had passed away just yesterday due to a heart attack. Although I was a little relieved that it wasn't my dad but still, I'm very deeply saddened about the news. I can't believe my uncle is gone, he is just in his early 50's. They were just talking on the phone with him, he was so excited about my mama going to Masbate to visit them and suddenly the call got disconnected. He was having a heart attack while he was talking to them. Oh I just can't imagine what my mama is feeling right now. I feel so bad that I can't comfort her and my uncle's family! How I wish I am there with them right now!!!!
