3. One Month Later

I walked up to Mr. Bayard’s mansion, where my dear Hamilton was still staying, one month later. I was greeted by the same doctor as all those days ago, but it felt like years. Every day, there was no guarantee of tomorrow for my dear Hamilton. Icy cold shivers go down my spine whenever I think about it.

 

The doctor brought me into the parlour, and sat me down, and began to speak to me.

“We think it is time for Mr. Hamilton to be moved back to your estate. He is more well each day.”

 

My heart fluttered! I had been spending so much time at Mr. Bayard’s that I missed the lovely, lively Grange. A smile swept through my face. I knew our children missed their Father. An hour after the duel, the doctors didn’t think he would live another day. And here we were a month later!

 

“What do you think about that Mrs. Hamilton?” He asked, politely.

“That would be wonderful, thank you so much for all of your work.” I responded.

“We only have one concern.” The doctor said, and I nodded my head for him to continue.

“We fear that Mr. Hamilton has been paralyzed from the waist down.” I gasped. What?

 

I had heard Alexander tell me how he had lost all feeling of his legs on his ride in the boat crossing the Hudson river after the duel, but I didn’t expect this. My life had just changed completely in ten seconds. What was I going to do?
