‘She’s been like that for days, motionless. It is like she just shut down. She came home, sat on the chair and stopped.
I called the doctor and they can find nothing wrong apart from a shallow heart beat and a decaying pulse.
Maybe you should come round, talk to her, nothing I say is getting through. I don’t think she is listening any more. It looks like she is staring at the clock on the wall.
No, not eaten for days, she is just wasting away in that chair. Tip it over? I am sure she will just lie on the floor where she falls. At least in the chair she uses less space.
Of course I have shaken her, pinched her, punched her, all I got was a single tear.
I just don’t know what to do any more’
