the "so-so" gesture

I walked into Mom's bedroom a few minutes ago; she was lying quietly in her bed. She heard me come in and, despite facing away from me, waved at me over her shoulder. I asked her how she was feeling, and she made a "so-so" gesture with the same hand. I asked her if she had a headache, and she slowly shook her head no. I then asked her what the problem was, finishing my question with "aside from the cancer" in Korean ("ahm bbae-go"). Mom chuckled weakly, but didn't say what the problem was. I suppose we'll know more when she finally gets out of bed.
