I hate days like this. It's Mum's checkup day with the cancer specialist. I look at the phone not sure if I want it to ring or not.
Anyway the phone rings. My heart jumps to my mouth. It#s earlier than I expected!!
Mum says hi and she's home already! The Doctor is pleased.
Doc - You're doing very well Olwin*.
Mum - I'm a tough old bird!
My heart wanders back towards the chest region. She finishes the current course of chemo this month and then doesn't have to go back until May.
Better do some work!
*Her first name is Olwin but she is never called it.
