Valve II

Thursday morning between 10 and 12 my mother got a new heart valve. The new valve entered my mother’s body through her groin.
Afterwards the doctors told us: “Everything went smoothly.”
“Did it hurt?” I asked her.
“No,” she said, “only a bit in my back.”
Then she drank coffee and she said: “Last night I couldn’t sleep because my neighbor was snoring like a sick animal.”
