61. Finally Home
Today I finally get to go home. I finally get to leave this depressing hospital and get to be home with Louis and Stella. My neck still hurts and has bandages on the stitches. I have to take pain killers every time I eat because it still hurts to eat. Louis and Johanna have been a big help with all of this. The boys came everyday to cheer me up. Amber stayed the night most nights with me which made me feel better. My dad came almost everyday after he was released from the hospital for his injuries. Angela and Kristen came as well. Kristen brought Lyric and Melody with her, Jeremy had military training to go to. Kristen's baby bump has been growing. She finds out if its a boy or a girl soon, which I'm very excited about. Louis' black eye and bruises have gone away now. He has been so wonderful. I honestly truly love him. He's my cuddle bug, my prince, and my boobear. He treats me like a princess and always cares for me. We were sitting on the side of the hospital bed together, packing my things to go home. He was putting my clothes in my bag while I was getting Stella ready. He zipped up the bag and put it by the door, "So are you excited to go home?" I smile, "Of course! I think Stella is too." She was smiling while I was putting her in her carrier. Louis and I laughed at Stella's adorable smile. A nurse came in with a wheel chair, "Are you ready to go home, Mrs. Baker?" I had a confused face, "Yes I am but why did you bring in a wheelchair?" She pushed it in by the bed, "We have to take every patient in a wheelchair when they are leaving." I nod my head, "Alright." I got into the wheelchair and put Stella's carrier in my lap. Louis leaned down and kissed me. When he pulled away he whispered into my ear, "Lets go home." The nurse pushes me into the hall while Louis closely followed with the bags. We checked out at the reception table. We walked out to the car and got Stella buckled in. Louis helped me into the front seat and got in on the other side. He grabbed my hand and squeezed it, "You know what?" I look over at him, "What?" He rubbed my hand, "That night, seeing you hurt and in pain made me realize that I truly do love you. I didn't know if I was losing you or not and that killed me. Rachel, I love you, forever and always." I leaned in and kissed him, passionately. When we pulled away I whispered in his ear, "I love you too." He smiled and kissed my nose, "Your just so cute." I laugh, "Thanks cuddle bug." He chuckles and starts the car. We're finally going home.
