Turner's Mosaic. Genetecist's results.


Oh lovely.


The geneticist will discuss this to me in depth. The receptionist schedules the appointment.


My mom hangs up the phone on me before I even get to the diagnosis part, because I mis-remembered the name of a doctor from years ago. We do not communicate well when it comes to my scary/ potentially bad health news.


My mother's sister, my godmother, texts me a few minutes later. I thought maybe the two of them spoke but they hadn't. I tell her. As a medical professional, she is a master of the art of remaining calm. She is able to analyze the information before letting a sense of alarm take over her emotions. We talk about it on the phone the next day. She is the only one I've told, until now.
