Dear Mrs. Kocho, in compliance with your request, I am sending this report by messenger rather than mail, because you said you didn't want your husband to see it. I'm afraid it's bad news. A condition of arterial monochromia exists. This is a rare disease that usually affects only boxers. The first visible signs of the disease will be a falling out of the hair and irritability. There is a tendency for the tongue to turn blue, and he'll tire easily. This will be accompanied by chills and he'll spend most of his time near the stove. I have enclosed some pills. Give him one a day in a saucer of warm milk. Be affectionate. Make him comfortable, and he may live for as long as six months."
Dr. Ed Norton
