I sat in the rocking chair holding Bailey to my chest. Her room was small. It had a crib with bars made of medal. It had a rocking chair next to the crib and a couch on the far side. A small bathroom was in the corner, as for the parents when they didn’t want to leave. I never thought I would be here, right now. My baby girl, sick. So sick she is in the hospital. I held her gently, not wanting to let go to her as she slept on my chest. She was in a diaper sweating still. The doctors were stumped. She had a high fever, she was vomiting everywhere. What makes it worse is they weighed her to see if anything was wrong with that, and I feel like a crap dead beat parent. She had lost about 4 pounds. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot but for her it is. Bailey was already a skinny baby. But now, now it was worse. The doctor said it wasn’t my fault since she was light and it could not be much of a difference when I held her, but still I should have known. They did what they could to find out what was plaguing my daughter but it could take awhile. I told everyone to go home. Mom didn’t have to deal with this, she shouldn’t have too. Dad called Emmy and asked her what to do for something for Wyatt since he wasn’t that good at the overnight thing since its been about 19 years since I was born. She said to bring him over with a bag of clothes and a couple of bottles. I told Rodger to go back to Kelsey ad Andy that I could call him if I needed anything from him. I said yes I would and kicked him out. It was silent in the room. It was late so most of the children were sleeping, as was Bailey, so the only sound was from the TV that was playing on the wall. I couldn’t sleep. All I want was for Tanner to be home so I can hold and kiss him. But he wasn’t. He was away, deployed with Hunter. I looked down at Bailey as she moved around sucking on her pacifier. I took a deep breath and closed my eyes, wanting sleep to take over me…………
