Sample text

Carl completed his military service and found a job as a welder. Reverend Young performed the wedding ceremony at Trinity Episcopal, and he attended the festive reception at the Carner home afterward. Donna and Carl found a three-room apartment on the ground floor of an aging, slightly shabby tenement on Main Street, a mile northeast of downtown Woburn. Donna kept her job as a bookkeeper. The couple could afford to go out on occasion and they bought a few pieces of new furniture for the house they hoped they would own someday.

Anne came to the hospital early every morning. At first she returned home to sleep at night, but soon she began spending the nights with her son in his hospital room. Anne’s mother came to Woburn to look after the two older children. By the end of the first week, James’s platelet count was still low but holding steady; he had no new bruises or petechiae. He was losing hair and experiencing severe nausea because of the drugs, but Truman felt he was clinically stable. By the end of the month there was no evidence of leukemic cells in either his peripheral blood or bone marrow.

He had definitely relapsed. Truman was greatly discouraged. He believed he could induce another remission in Jimmy’s leukemia. But even if he succeeded, he knew the remission would probably be only temporary. The prospect for an ultimate cure was remote indeed. Jimmy Anderson commenced a different protocol. Anne felt certain her son was dying. She had difficulty containing her anger. Her tone in dealing with the nurses and doctors became sharp. On occasion, Truman was the target of her anger. That November, Anne remained with Jimmy in the hospital each day and throughout most nights.
