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.
