My phone rings and it's Chloe. Silence and then a hang up. I call back and someone actually ANSWERS!!! A minute and 30 seconds go by with nothing on the other end and me saying whatever comes to my head. Then a hang up.
Phone rings--Chloe again. I had prepared some stuff to say to whoever was listening on the other end, but instead, it was Chloe in a really weak voice!!!! I was stunned beyond belief. I honestly thought I would never hear from her again. I could tell it was difficult for her to talk, and I had a difficult time understanding her. We spoke for almost 40 minutes. Here's what I was able to piece together.
She had an insulin overdose that did something serious to her after she left to see me on Saturday. She pulled over when she started feeling sick. I'm not sure what happened after that, but I do know she's recovering at a center in Pennsylvania. She was being treated at a hospital there.
Her brother is supposed to call me tonight to tell me what happened. I hope he does. I wanted to ask a zillion questions, but she could barely talk and I wanted her to rest. I'll call her again tomorrow.
I can't explain how much of a relief it is to at least know what happened. She assured me she's getting better, but I'll feel better myself if her brother tells me the same thing.
I realize this story sounds totally unbelievable, but why should I expect anything different. Relationships have never come easy for me, when they've come at all. I feel stupid for having published everything for the world to read, but at the time, I didn't think I would ever find out what happened.
I'll report back tomorrow on anything new.
