3. Visiting My Mom

 

Jake joined me on my way to my mom's room. I opened the door slowly, fearing what I would see. I gasped and covered my mouth. She had tubes running through her mouth and bruises covered her body from head to toe and a cast was on her leg. I looked closer and saw she had stitches lining her arm.

 

"What are the stitches for?" I asked Jake. I was never told about the stitches.

 

"A piece of shattered glass from the window cut her and left a gaping gash in her arm" Jake explained to me.

 

I sat down in the vinyl chair and pulled myself closer to her bed and waited for her to wake up. I carefully grabbed her hand trying not to disturb her sleep, Jake rubbed my back.

 

About twenty minutes later I felt her hand twitching against mine and I looked up as her eyes fluttered open.

 

"Mom!" I shouted with a giant smile and leaned in to hug her, then pulled back realizing she was fragile and it wasn't a good idea. She wore a smile on her face too, not like my dad's though, this was a real smile. She's the kind of person that no matter what condition she's in, will always smile to make you feel better. I have to say, her smile did make me feel better, it reassured me that she was going to be okay in some way.

 

I sat close to the hospital bed, along with Jake, listening to my mom talk about how unexpected the crash was. It was a hit and run, they haven't found the guilty stranger yet.

 

I then kissed my mom goodnight, still worried about her health. I went to my dad's room to say goodbye and get Caleb.
