“Mom,” Thad, a senior at East Heights, said when she answered the phone. “I’ve got a problem.”
“What? What’s the matter? Where are you? Is something wrong?”
“Yeah,” he said with a heavy sigh. “I just got an alert from the MyLifeLineMD app. I think it’s from Dr. Obokonowicz.”
“Right right. She’s that doctor you went to see for the breathing problem you were having earlier this year. What does the alert say?”
Thad sighed longer this time. “It doesn’t look good, Mom. It really doesn’t. Let me send it to you, and you tell me what you think.”
He forwarded the message and waited.
“Got it,” his mom said. “Give me a sec.”
A half minute later, she said, “You’re just like your father, ya know that? Wait’ll you get home.”
“What? It’s serious, Mom.”
“Good bye, Thad.”
