Chapter 4

"Your in the hospital, Denise", replied Annie as she stood up and put her hand on Denise's arm.

"Hospital? What am I doing here?"

"You passed out… but we were afraid it was much worse so we took you to the emergency room."

In a sweeping wave everything came back to Denise. She wanted to cry but was too exhausted. She wanted to get up but her head hurt too much. She just closed her eyes and slowly shook her head from side to side in the big pillow. She felt Annie's hand softly touching her forehead and then stroking her hair back. She was surprised at her sister's affection and glad she was there. She slowly reopened her eyes and stared back at the ceiling.

"Where are my children?" she asked slowly, now getting a lump in her throat.

"Lindsey and Tabitha are home with Mama. Mama went home to change clothes. They left about an hour ago but should be back soon."

"And Michael?"

Annie was surprised Denise asked about Michael and reached out with her other arm to hold her hand.

"He's in the waiting room. He's just been sitting there all this time. I'm surprised he hasn't slept since he's been here."

Denise looked up at Annie with a frown.

"Slept? What do you mean?...How long have I been here?"
