Ten days before his thirteenth birthday Jack he had an attack he could not hide. He told his mother who made an appointment with Dr Muller. The way the doctor acted caused Jack to start worrying. He and his mother were then sent to the hospital for a series of tests. After that they were sent home, with Jack knowing nothing more.
Later Dr Muller arrived to talk to his parents. Jack didn’t understand all of what was being said, but understood enough. After the doctor left, his parents came upstairs to tell him that he was sick and would need to take easy for a while. That and his mother’s actions made him scared. That night he couldn’t sleep and he thought a lot about his Uncle Frank. After Frank died, Jack had always suspected that what had killed Frank might one day kill him too.
