13. Drowsy Jaci
my eyes slowly lifted and I could see a light brighter than any light i've ever seen- no i'm not dying, there is someone shining a lamp light right in my face.
I blink and jerk my head away bumping it on the backboard of the bed I was sitting in.
"What happened?" I asked
The nurse informed "Your lungs gave out on you."
"How long have i been here?" I pleaded
"Four days?" I quavered
"No," she assured "For quite some time."
"Well?" I demanded
"A week okay." she snapped "You've been here for a week."
"Did I die?" I assumed
"No you did not die." she stated abruptly
I leaned back on my pillow rubbing my head and noticed how big of a bump I had
"Is this bump permanent?" I asked. She laughed.
To my surprise, someone walked into the room causing me to holler. I listened closely
"Is she awake?" he hypothesized
"Shes drowsy." the nurse responded
My eyes rolled back into my head before I heard everyone leave the room.
I opened my eyes again and sat up. It was night time and Drake and my mom were at my bedside in tears.
"What's wrong?" I pleaded
My mother softened "I don't want to make you wait to hear it from the doctor."
Drake snapped "Jaci, you have lung cancer"
