That’s another thing about chemo. Your thermostat goes kaput and you alternate between freezing and sweltering. I start wearing a tuque during the cold spells. When I take it off, I find hunks of hair in it. Harjit must have told my parents that I was down in the dumps, because the next thing I know my whole family— Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, Nana, Maureen—comes in for a visit. To cheer me up.

I feel the hump of her catheter, her bony chest. I close my eyes. Her hair smells like peppermint. We sway, barely moving. I give myself over to the music. To the voice.
