Hi Susu, Alex her...

Well... not very well,

'cause I have a problem...

Mom had a stroke

and she's in the hospital...

Dad called and told me

that shes speaking nonsense

and keeps repeating

the same question...



I don't know... The doctor's

explaining it to dad as we speak...

Got it!

What's his name?! Crisan?!

Got it!

Okay Susu, thanks...

I'll ask and I'll call you back...

I don't know... I'll talk to my dad

and then I'll call you back...

Okay Susu, Thanks...

So... Tell me...

Thank God, dad...

Listen, ask for the CD with the X-ray

because I Wanna send it to Cluj

so that $u$u can look at it...

What's the doctor's name?


Tell him

I wanna move her to Cluj!

Yeah, We have to!

'Cause I Want to!

Tell him that I have a friend in Cluj

and I wanna move her there.

Listen, I have a train at 17:15...

Of course I'm coming!

What pajamas?!

Okay, bye...

I called dad to tell him

to move her to Mrs. Nuti

and he's getting on my nerves

saying he's ashamed of the doctor.

Yeah... His wife's a professor

at my mom's school...

He says he owes him 'cause

had it been 10 minutes later,

the radiologist would've left...

Really now!

Apparently if it hadn't been for Crisan,

they would've sent her to Arad

even though Cata said

it's dangerous to move her...

I hope... That's what they said...

Wait a sec...



Given the rush,

I hope they read the X-ray properly...

Can you please close the door?

Thank you...

Or maybe the doctor

didn't tell the truth?

Why wouldn't he?

'Cause that's what they do

in critical situations around here...

What, ain't it so?

I'd rather not tell you

than make you suffer...

What do you mean okay

if she keeps repeating herself?!

Okay... Talk to you later... Bye...

Sorry for cutting in...
