Phone follow-up

Even as I found the phoned request for a two week time-out in a rest home amusing due to the enormity and impossibility of the task, I did recognize that this lady was at her wits' end. A single mother of tweenaged girls, she is struggling with extraordinary fatigue, even more than expected for a single mother of tweenaged girls.

I'm not sure which came first, the depression or the fatigue, but I do know she is seriously depressed. We have since had a long phone discussion about her faltering mood, and have a plan in place--albeit short of a two week vacation--that will address her troubles.
