Both couples crowded the doctor and asked about Lizzy's condition. "Ms Jones is a very lucky young woman. The bullet missed her spinal cord completely. We were able to extract the bullet. However her spinal nerves are tensed with the trauma due to the bullet. What she needs now is her family. After she regains her strength, Ms Jones will need to be cared for," said Dr. Talbert. Right at that moment Jeremy appeared. "That's where I'll be taking over." Mike and Lori rushed toward Jeremy. Mr. Bauer and his wife were equally happy to see Jeremy. "Can I see her doc?" asked Jeremy. Dr.Talbert nodded and led Jeremy to Lizzy's room. "Don't stay too long, Ms Jones needs her rest," said Dr. Talbert. Jeremy told the doctor he understood and entered the hospital room.
Jeremy took a chair and placed it by the bed. He saw that lizzy was hooked up to a heart monitor as well to an I.V. Taking LIzzy's hand in his, Jeremy allowed the tears that he had been holding on to fall. He saw the black and blue bruise along Lizzy's jaw. There was also a small cut on her lower lip. "I'm glad that the security officers took care of the thug, because I would have done something far worse," said Jeremy. Lizzy whispered, "You know perfectly well that wouldn't have been a smart move hon." Jeremy wiped his tears and gently kissed Lizzy's hand. "How do you feel sweetheart?" he asked. Slowly moving her head, Lizzy looked over at Jeremy. "I feel a whole lot better now that you are here," answered Lizzy. After a few minutes a nurse came and informed Jeremy that he had to leave. Jeremy leaned over and ever so gently he kisssed Lizzy's lips and assured her that he'll return later.
