Heather: Hello Mother, today is Wednesday and Crystal has gone to watch the quads, so I am calling you. What’s happening?
Audrey: It is raining and the leaves are dropping. The trees will be bare pretty soon. I’m getting old. I’m happy I’m here. I have the cat and Buddy (the dog) for friends. Buddy carts a rag baby around in his mouth, and he looks so happy every time he ﬁnds it.
Brenda looks good. She says she is not dying with cancer. She is living with cancer. She has had the water drawn off. She is a ﬁghter. I’ve never seen her look better. She wears the hats that Deardra designed and everyone is asking about those hats. They make her look so pretty. Spencer is ﬁne. He’s determined that Brenda will live and he will not think of her dying. She is a ﬁghter and he is right with her.
