He look relaxed, sitting back in the chair.
"I mean, I went to the doctors and got the diagnosis, it wasn't great."
He pointed to his head area.
"Scheduled for more tests going forward."
He leaned forward... "well I wanted to get an opinion of someone who's on the other side of things..."
"Right, well, I mean, the first thing that you need to deal with... is the parents. And I'm all about problem solving right now"
His face shifted, a nervous twitch flashed briefly.
"My mom knows already, I called her right outside the hospital after the diagnosis..."
His words quickened, he wanted to get the next part out quickly, and almost a whisper...
"in tears... She was worried..."
A lump formed in my throat, I knew I needed to be positive, to look on the more pragmatic, more practical side of things.
"Of course she is, same with me, parents and their children. Ha."
