Me: Can I have a quick word?

Nell: I’m sunning my paws.

Me: I know but I wanted to check you are coping.

Nell: What are you talking about?

Me: I realise my illness has meant things have been a bit difficult recently.

Nell: It’s only pneumonia.

Me: Well, thank you for the sympathy, Nell.

Nell: You are on the mend now anyway.

Me: You must have been worried though.

Nell: Not really. We all pulled together and provided excellent care.

Me: Dave’s care was a bit full on.

Nell: I asked David not to sit on you but he felt you needed him close by.

Me: Well, it was much appreciated.

Nell: Anything else?

Me: Not really.

Nell: Only my shift doesn’t start for a few hours. Harriet is on call at the moment.

Me: I didn’t realise. You’ve been a great comfort.

Nell: Yes.

Me: You still are.

Nell: I’m off duty.

Me: Sorry.
