"Will you come with me please?"

"Sure. Where are we going?"

"We're going to the Doctor's office."

"Since when do you need me to go to the Doctor with you? You NEVER want me to go with you."

"Why? What's wrong?"

"Wrong? There's nothing wrong. I'm fine."

"I know you. There's something has you worried."

"You're right. I'm scared. I have questions and I'm afraid of what the answers are going to be."

"You are my love. You are my husband - and we are companions. Whatever happens, we'll face it together. You and me."
