The Conversation Doctor 

Gerry, 79, lives in hope of reconciling with his family and leaving a legacy. But people are trying to take care of him. Literally.

Beware black humour in this poignant short story about old age, the will to live, and a big decision. Life and death hang in the balance... The balance of a conversation. And a checkbook.

Worry. They’re professionals.
