This is an email I just sent to Sophia Mas at Stewart-Marchman:


I am copying my sister [name redacted] on this email.

I called and talked to my mom for about five minutes on Friday night. (It was about 8:30pm your time.) She seemed to not understand that she wasn’t in her own apartment. For example: Some other phone was ringing in the background and she asked me to wait for her to go answer it, and I had to explain that she didn’t need to do that. I told her the good news about [redacted], and she seemed glad to hear about that. When I asked how she was doing, she said that her apartment wasn’t great, but that it was enough for her and Mocha right now. (Mocha is her dog.) Then she simply said goodbye, hoping that I’d be able to visit her soon and asking me to call her more frequently. It was a very difficult phone call for me, obviously.

Can you tell me anything new about what is happening there? How is she doing? Have you had any additional sessions with her since I spoke with you last week? Does she seem to be responding well to the new medications?

I’m sure you can understand that we are desperate for any news you can provide.

Thank you sincerely,

David Vincent Gagne
