Dr. Fisher walked up to Tanner and looked
at him. "How-how are they?" He whispered looking down at a still
"You have a beautiful 16 inch, 5 pound baby
girl." He smiled at Tanner. Mom looked at him.
"Is she healthy? Is she okay?" Mom said
standing up. The doctor looked at her.
"I'm not sure right now. They have taken
her to the NICU to check her out. She was in longer than we
wanted her to be and we are not sure if that did anything to harm
her." Tanner closed his eyes as a tear rolled down his face. "But
this little guy looks like he got the best out of the deal." He
smiled at Wyatt.
"What do you mean?" Mom asked putting her
hand on Tanner's shoulder looking at Wyatt as he opened his eyes
to look at his father.
"He is the bigger, stronger, baby out of
the two. May I see him?" He asked holding his arms out to Tanner.
Tanner looked down at his son before gently handing him to the
doctor. The doctor gently unwrapped the blanket around him to
look at the naked baby. Wyatt started to cry as a breeze from the
air conditioner hit his semi naked body.
"What are you looking for?" Tanner asked
holding the white blanket in his hands. The doctor looked at
"Well first I was making sure everything
was okay since right after he was born, sometimes I don't trust
some of the nurses here. But everything looks fine. You might
want to put a onesie on him so he doesn't get cold it might be
August but still." He smiled. "Did you bring one? Because I can
get you a hospital issued one if you need it." Mom
have one let me go get if from Cooper." She said walking out.
Tanner looked at the doctor.
"How is my fiancée? Please tell me she is
okay…" He whispered as the doctor handed Tanner Wyatt
"After we got Bailey out we looked to see
why her blood pressure was dropping as fast as it was. We found
it pretty fast." He nodded as Mom walked back in holding a blue
baby body suit.
"Than what was wrong with her?" He asked
taking the clothes and gently putting it on Wyatt.Mom looked at
"She has a tear in her birth canal. It tore
when Wyatt came out. It couldn't clot because it so big and it
was bleeding too much." He sighed.
"Is, is she gone?" He whispered looking at
the doctor. "Please tell me she isn't gone." He cried at the
"Hey, hey, hey I didn't say that." The
doctor said looking at Wyatt as he started to cry. "Tanner, Ryan
not dead. We stopped the bleeding easily; all it needed was
stitches to fix the tare. We gave her blood since she lost so
much but she should recover easily. I did what I said I was going
to do and that was to save her, and I did." He smiled at them as
Tanner tried to stop Wyatt from crying.
"Then where is she? Shouldn't she be back
by now?" He asked looking out the hallway.
"Well that's also why I was here. We
changed her room to one closer to the nurses station just in case
something happened. I can take you there now. She should be ready
by now." Tanner took a deep breath and stood up with a still
"Come with me and I will bring you to her
room." Mom and Tanner both fallowed Doctor Fisher as Wyatt
screamed his head off. The nurse inside my room smiled at Tanner
will go get him a bottle, he must be hungry." She said checking
one last thing before walking out. The nurse walked back in
holding a little bottle for Wyatt. "Sit down sweetheart." Tanner
sat down next to my bed were I lay sleeping and looked up at the
nurse. "Give him this." She smiled handing Tanner the bottle. He
pressed the nipple of the bottle to Wyatt's lips making him stop
crying to suckle on it hungrily. He smiled down at his son before
looking at me as I lay on the bed, totally out of it. He looked
at the doctor.
"When will she wake up to see our babies?"
The doctor shrugged.
"We had to sedate her to get Bailey out, so
it's really up to her body on how long she is out for. It
shouldn't be too long." He said looking at the bag of blood that
was attached to my IV pole where my IV was.
"Thank you Doctor Fisher." He yawned
looking at his watch. It was 7 o'clock. The doctor looked at
"Tanner let me take Wyatt to the nursery,
were he has to go soon anyway, while you get some sleep. You're
going to need it." Tanner looked down at the handsome baby
falling to sleep, down with his bottle. "Let me take him. It will
be okay, get some sleep." Doctor Fisher gently took A sleeping
Wyatt from him.
"Take care of him, please." He whispered
unlacing his combat boots.
will, get some sleep." He smiled.
"Doc?" He called quietly. Doctor Fisher
looked at him.
"When will I get to see my daughter?" The
doctor looked at Tanner.
"Soon, just get some sleep kid." He said
walking out with Wyatt. Tanner took a deep breath and looked
around the medium sized room. There was a TV on the left wall
next to a window that had the shade pulled down so the morning
light wouldn't come inside the dark room. There was a bathroom in
the far corner by the door as the bed was in the middle of the
room against the wall. He stood up from the couch he was sitting
on and pulled the blanket up so I wasn't just covered by a thin
sheet. He kissed my forehead before sitting back on the couch as
Mom walked back in.
"We are going to go home and let you too
have your space. Call me when she wakes up will
"Of course Patty. Thank you." He smiled.
Mom kissed his forehead.
"Don't worry.Now go to bed." She said with
a stern voice. He smiled lying down as she pulled the blanket
over him. He closed his eyes as Mom walked out of the room back
to Dad leaving the hospital………
