    Very early last Thursday morning I received a call from an unfamiliar number, but the area code was from where my parents live, so I picked up. The social worker on the other end of the line said my stepdad was in the ICU, needing lifesaving measures and my mother was missing. Having been made power of attorney if they were to become incapacitated, I approved dad to be put on a ventilator and contacted the sheriff to check on my mom at home, where they found her semi-conscious, and transported her to the hospital. They both had double pneumonia after a bout with the flu. Their oxygen levels were so low they were unable to realize how sick they were until it was dire.
