famita are you the youngest sibling in your family? I am, and it always seems I'm the last to know any news and when I get news, they water it down to try and shelter me I don't know why, because if something really bad happens I'm the one that usually has to pick up the pieces.
My sister had a cancer scare several years ago, and I had to get my information over the I'm fine hotline too. Hers turned out okay, but it was still frustrating to not be there in person and see with my own eyes and hear with my own ears what was really going on.
Just try not to let your fears get the best of you. I'm keeping you all in my prayers.
