You all watch T.V. right? E.R., Grey's Anatomy or watch movies like John Q and other health institution related shows. You all know that at one time or another there are the practice drills for bomb threats and intruders and something always inherently goes wrong? Well  our family experienced something similar but all WENT well. There is nothing like a text message earlier in the day from your husband indicating they are sweeping the hospital due to a "bomb threat" to get the juices flowing.  You remember in times like these that being calm is important. Though you are not there you are now  in the know so how you react is also important. That happened last Friday. It was 6:29 pm and Byron has now spoken to me on the phone indicating the hospital has called and "all clear" and he is on his way home.  At 2:30 pm I was unsure what our evening or weekend would look like when I received the text from Byron stating he was going to be late this evening due to the threat. He was clearing each of his areas.  I immediately went online looking for "BREAKING NEWS" but nothing. This was either very good or bad. Maybe it was a surprise practice drill for the hospital. I texted Byron indicating that we love him and to be safe. I love you was stated all around. It might be real and not a drill. A few text messages a lot of silence in between.

I left work early in order to spend time with Ty and remove myself from work.  Thoughts of worry certainly enter your mind in these situations because you never know.  The press has been instructed not to air the information by police and staff. But all ends well.

WHEW just thankful to see Byron, to continue to have him and his presence in our lives!
