Transcript of Telephone Conversation between Charles Balis, M.D. and Ms. Sylvia Bows, Monday, July 22, 1996 at 7:15 PM.

Dr. Balis: Hello?
Ms. Bows: Hello, Doctor. How are you this evening?
Dr. Balis: Sylvia? I am very happy to hear from you. Your husband...
Ms. Bows: Yes, I know. Tom called and told you that I was missing. He left me a note on the refrigerator about that. He said that he was worried and that he called and spoke with you. He also told me to call you when I got in. So, what's wrong?
Dr. Balis: Tom was very upset and agitated when he called. He said that you were missing.
Ms. Bows: Oh, that's nonsense! I was with my cousin Rene. She flew in from New York Sunday afternoon and we spent the rest of the day and last night talking. Rene is more than a relative, she's a very good friend. When I was finally able to, I told her everything that happened and she took the first flight she could to come and see me. Tom knew all about this. In fact, he was the one to tell me about Rene's message on our answering machine. She listed her flight numbers and her hotel and proposed that we get together that evening. If Tom was worried he would have called the hotel. Did he mention anything else?
Dr. Balis: Tom expressed his concern about you and about the effects of the medication you are taking. I have to say that I am a bit concerned too. I would like to talk to you about this on our next session.
Ms. Bows: Doctor, whatever concerns Tom has, they are not about me. But if you are worried, I agree we should discuss this during our next session. But really Doctor, I am feeling very well. Better than I have in weeks. Maybe years. I had a long discussion with Rene about this too. And she agrees. She thinks that I look happier than I have in years. Please Doctor, don't worry. I'll see you tomorrow. Have a good night.
Dr. Balis: Thank you, Sylvia. I'll see you tomorrow. Good bye.
Ms. Bows: Bye bye.
