On the Wednesday after my biopsy, my daughter and I were on the way out the door to our part-time jobs at a local library when the phone rang. It was just about 4:30 p.m. because our starting time is 5 p.m. and I knew that we would be late if we didn't leave immediately.
I don't know what made me pick up the phone that particular time, on that particular day. I hardly ever answer the phone anymore because I have a teenager who excels at that job. I just happened to be closer to the phone than she, so I heard the doctor's voice first.
