23. NICU

I flutter my eyelids open to the sound of the machines beeping. I breathe in a deep breathe and realize where I am, so my eyes open up.

"Hey babe!" Harry says softly kissing my forehead and stroking my hand. "How are you?"

I manage to smile a small smile and mouth good. I'm still a little loopy from the anesthesia and weak from being sick and the operation. THE OPERATION! "Where's Harper?" I whisper really scared.

"She's safe. She's in the NICU. She's 2 months early. Your parents are on their way here. They're trying to catch a flight. Everyone's here other than them though. They're in the waiting room." He smiles.

"When can I see her?" I ask.

"Once you're feeling better. You still have a fever and you don't want to get Harper sick especially since she's in such a fragile state. I'm sorry babe." He kisses my forehead again, and I close my eyes fighting back the tears.

I can't even see my own daughter? After all this time with her I can't be with her? Why did this happen to me?

"Just try to get better ok? Hopefully you can see her when your fever goes down. Right now you're at around 100, so you are getting better."

"Ok. Can you stay here with me?"

"Of course, I wouldn't be anywhere else." I then fall back asleep.

"Dalis... Dalis." I hear the nurse say to me as she taps my legs. "Dalis, you slept off your fever and the medicine has it controlled. Your husband is outside with your guests. If you don't mind, they'd love to come in." She smiles and I nod. I think I was asleep for like 10 hours because Harry hasn't changed his clothes, he looks tired, and it's around 7 in the evening. I went in to the O.R. around 4:30 this morning.

"Dalis!! How are you! Congratulations! I can't wait to see Harper!" Perrie comes in and hugs me. Somehow she can always make me feel better so I sit up. Zayn, Liam, Danielle, Lauren, Niall, Louis, Eleanor, and Harry follow Perrie and give me hugs. They brought me balloons and gifts for Harper.

"Did you see her?" I asked Danielle.

"No. We figured it would be best if we waited until after you saw her. But Harry saw her and he says she's adorable. We can't wait. But we want you to get better first!" Danielle responds.

"You saw her?" I asked Harry.

"Yeah, right when they brought her out, you were still asleep and they took her straight to the NICU but stopped to let me see her. Dalis, she's so cute." Harry says and sits next to me on the bed.

After 2 hours of talking, they decide to go home and get rest; they've been at the hospital since my surgery.

"Are you ready?" The nurse asks me as she helps me get up. It's been 3 days since Harper's birth and I've been feeling so much better. I'm strong enough to walk and today's the day I finally get to see my daughter and hold her.

The nurse leads me to Harry and shows us the way to the NICU.

We stop right outside it and look into the glass windows, searching for the baby Harper Lorraine Styles. We spot her in the 3rd row and I smile. Harry wraps his arm around my shoulder and I hug him tight. "Come on!!" I say and we walk into the room.

As I'm sitting down in the chair, Harry kneeling beside me, the nurse comes over with Harper in the incubator.

"Now, I'm really sorry but you can't hold her as of now because she's so weak, but in a few weeks you can. You're allowed to touch her though if you'd like." And she shows us.

I look at Harry and then proceed to put my hand in the incubator. I gently stroke my daughter's little hand and I smile. Harry does the same. He then starts to hum Small Bump by Ed Sheeran. I laugh and look at him. He totally would sing this. It was the most precious 45 minutes of my life. I can't wait to hold her.
