I felt well in Berlin.
It was nice.
The phone call with my sister,
developed in a sad direction.
She'd taken care of me
during my absence.
Our mother fell ill with COPD
with emphysema 5 years ago
a chronic obstructive disease of the lungs
caused by coughing,
increased sputum and respiratory distress
As pulmonary emphysema
is an irreversible hyperinflation
of the smallest air-filled structures,
When mom got the diagnosis,
