Nice writing. Lots of tests there-mostly for the mother. Impactful story.

During the break in the Weekly Challenge schedule, I’d like to invite you to the FaithWriters forums, where I’m holding a weekly free “class” in various writing strategies. Participation is strictly voluntary, but I give free and timely feedback on all contributions. I’d love to have you drop by! http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=67

The Mother-Daughter relationship is often difficult, but as the Mother in your story, love wins in the end.

Nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

The title rings so true! I loved how you portrayed the emotions of the mother - how tired and worried she must have been given all she and her daughter had gone through together. Her thoughts and emotions were very real and raw.

A nice take on the topic, too. The orthopedic exam was the backdrop of the story, yes, but I saw "exam" in the way the mother examined the past, examined her daughter in the present and examined her own thoughts toward her daughter. Nice work.
Very believable and compelling. Nicely done.
Great title!
