--This is Susan, Martha's daughter. How is she doing?
--She's had a bit of a cold, but she's ok. Just had lunch.
--Is she up for the telephone?
--[It's your daughter, Martha; she's on the phone.]
--Hello mom! How are you, mom? Did you just have lunch?
I hear you have a cold. Are you there, mom?
--[It's your daughter, Martha, she's on the phone. Say hello.]
--Hello. (breathy whisper)
--Hi mom, how are you? What have you been up to?
--I guess she's not up to talking today. I'll try back tomorrow, ok,
in case she's feeling more like it.
--OK, sorry. Good-bye.
