it was a wednesday as robert sits in the hospital chair next to his mother just after being told she has been diagnosis with cancer. shuddering, he couldn’t deal with emotions?—?he wasn’t only grievous but raging. he had no family outside of his mother. a lonely life. nothing like his father, john. his parents have been separated for years now. john has not been in his life for most of his childhood. they never had that connection.
he looked at his mother as she was taking it all in, got up and walked out into the hallway. after a brief phone call, he learned her insurance wouldn’t cover the cost for all the treatment.
