Call from Sylvia who says John Ward is dying. Prostate cancer. Call from Gloria who says that Nora's daughter went to doctor with heartburn, but was found to be nine months pregnant. . .. She ads that Walter Matthau, her friend Carol's husband, wieghs 85 pounds and is dying, he too. Phone calls these days are always about diseases and death, never about love problems.
