“Sorry about the wait, it has been a really busy day and we are short shift because of the flu and stomach flu that is going around.” “You are suppose to be off to after you have your baby!” “I know and that how short staff we are and that the hospital had to call in Doctor on maternity leave!” “Catherine I am going to push on your stomach, tell me if it hurt.” “Ok.” The doctor set the chart on the end of the bed and then start to push on Catherine’s stomach, the doctors start on the right and then on the left, but it does not seem to cause Catherine any pain. The doctor pick up the chart and then take a pin out of the chest pocket on the right side of her scrub top and make a note on the chart. “Coughing, so what is wrong?” “You should have come in soon, I going to admit you into the hospital to keep an eye on you and put you on medicines that you can only be give through an IV.” “What do I have?” “You have the flu and stomach flu, but the flu and stomach flu (viruses) that going around is really strong and if you did not get the flu shoot it hit you really hard and take twice as long to get over it. The people who had a flu shoot are still catching the flu and stomach but not as bad and are usually better in a few days.” “Lindsey was right I should have had a flu shot, when I take her into get her, coughing.” “I think after this year the head of the lab will require anyone that work for the LVPD to get a flu shoot.” “Sara’s you do get a flu shoot right?” “Yes.” “Good. I need to call Lindsey and let her know what going on.” “I already had the nurse call Lindsey’s cellphone and she comes in after school to see Kevin and you.” “Thank you Dr. Fairy.” “You are welcome.” Sara stays with Catherine until she get moves upstairs to a hospital room and then Sara head back to the crime lab to work on her and Catherine case. At the same time Catherine lay her head down on the pillow of her hospital bed and falls to sleep. Catherine sleeps until Lindsey walks into her hospital room at four o’clock that evening. When Lindsey’s see her mom lay on the hospital bed, Lindsey start crying. Catherine sits up in the bed and when Lindsey reaches the bed gives her a hug. “I will be fine Lindsey.” “I know it is just feel alone right now with you and Kevin in the hospital.” “You are never alone Lindsey.” Lindsey sits down on the side of her moms’ hospital bed and the two of them visit for thirty minutes before Lindsey goes to visit Kevin. Before head home Lindsey check on her mom to find she is resting and leave her a note saying I will be back tomorrow after school and to give her a call if she wants her to bring anything from home to make the hospital more comfortable. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday Catherine rests most of the days and spent sometime with Lindsey and Kevin when the two of them stop each afternoon. Sunday morning Dr. Fairy who is wearing purple scrubs come into Catherine hospital room with her hands on her back and walks over to the side of the hospital bed. “Good morning Catherine, how are you feeling this morning?” “A lot better Dr. Fairy, I think that I am over the worse of the flu and stomach flu now.” “I think so too, I am let you go home today and your co-worker Sara is coming to pick you up at eleven o’clock, but I do not want you to go back to work until Tuesday night.” “That is fine, it will be nice to have a few more nights off of work.” “I will come in with the discharge paper when Sara get here.” “That is fine.” Dr. Fairy walks out of the hospital room hold her back and Catherine can tell the doctor is not feeling a hundred percent and that her back is sore. Catherine rest for an hour and then get out of bed and changes out of the hospital and into a pair of old fade blue jean and a blue sweatshirt, so she is ready when Sara get to there. When Sara walk into the hospital room Catherine see a white gold Victorian engagement ring that has a medium size round diamond in the center of the ring with eight small round diamonds around it on Sara's left ring finger. The two of them talks as Catherine wait for the doctor to bring the discharge paper for Catherine to sign at eleven thirty Dr. Fairy walks into the hospital room and give Catherine the discharge paper and Catherine sign the paper and give then to the doctor as a nurse open the hospital room door and push a wheelchair into the room. Dr. Fairy looks at the paper and then grab her stomach with her left hand. The doctor hand the discharge paper to the nurse and the nurse can tell the doctor is in labor. “I am going to head up to labor and deliver Nurse Rose, I am in labor.” “Take a seat in the wheelchair and I will take you upstairs to the sixth floor and then come back take Catherine outside to Sara’s SUV, if that is fine with Catherine.” “Ahem that is fine, I am not in any hurry, it more important for you to get upstair to labor and deliver and have your daughter.” “Thank you Catherine.” The doctor sits down on the wheelchair and Nurse Rose pushes Dr. Fairy out of the room. Catherine and Sara go back to talking as they wait for the nurse to come back. At eleven forty a nurse is help Catherine into Sara’s SUV. Twenty minutes later at twelve o’clock on Lindsey and Kevin are waiting at the front door for Sara to bring Catherine home from the hospital. Lindsey gets a big smile on her face when Sara’s SUV pulls into the driveway. A minute later Sara gets out of the SUV and walks over to the passage’s side and helps Catherine out of the SUV and helps Catherine up to the front door. Lindsey already has the front door when Sara and Catherine walk up to the door. Once Catherine is inside the house, Lindsey hugs her mom and Catherine hug Lindsey back. Catherine watch Lindsey and Catherine hug. “Catherine, do you want me to stay for a while or are you fine here with Lindsey and Kevin?” “Go home Sara and get same rest, you have to work tonight.” “Ok, I will see you when you get back to work then, but if you need anything that Lindsey or Kevin can help you with just sent Lindsey over to tell me or call me.” “I will, but I should be fine.” Sara walk over to the front door and leave the house. Lindsey close the front door behind Sara and Catherine walks over to the couch and sit down on the couch, then lay down on the couch. A few moments later Lindsey walks over to the couch and sit down on the coffee table in front of her mom and stare at her mom. “Mom I was so worry about you, why did you hide it from me that you were sick for two and half week!” “I did not want to worry you Linds!” “Mom when I get that call, on my cellphone from Desert Palm Hospital it worried me a lot more, I though they were calling to tell me you get shoots at a crime scene. I was so scary, then the nurse told me the doctor was admitting you into the hospital because you were dehydrated and run a fever of a hundred and four point six degrees Fahrenheit and that you have been sick with the flu and stomach flu for two and half weeks.” “I am sorry Lindsey, I did not mean to scary you.” “From now on just tell me the truth mom!” “I will Lindsey.” “Mom, I want you to go into your room and lay down and only get up if you need to use the bathroom. If you need anything at all, just yell for me and I will get it for you.” “Linds I know you mean well, but I can take care of myself and the first thing I want to do is take a shower.” “Mom the doctor wants you to take it easy still!” “I know Linds, but I can still take a shower, I will relax after I get out of the shower. How about the three of watch a movie together?” “Ok mom.” Catherine sits up and then stand up from the couch and head upstairs to her bedroom and the master bathroom to take a shower. A half hour later Catherine walks into the living room wearing a pair of black pajama pants and gray nightshirt. Catherine sits down on the couch beside Lindsey and Kevin is sitting on Lindsey right side.
