This is so well written. I question whether you would ask your mum and dad to sit down first; thus preparing them for some bad news just by that request. I am wondering also if this is creative non-fiction; that is, did it really happen? The start of a long and painful journey. I myself recently had a scare but was just last week given the all clear. You might want to read Helen Garner’s novel “The Spare Room”. I have a copy if you would like to read.
