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

"For days."

"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."

"Here what?"

Drake snapped "Jaci, you have lung cancer"
