I glanced at the door she had just come through, catching a glimpse of my mother lying in a narrow hospital bed, attended to by a medical team. I nodded, following her to her office. As we entered the room, Monique gestured to a chair, and I settled in, waiting for her to speak. "We managed to retrieve your mother's file from the Mayo Clinic.
