The next couple of days consisted of me getting ready to have the surgery for my liver. It was failing alright. I felt terrible, I barley even left the hospital bed. Taylor rarely left my side. When he did it was for work, as the Corps needed him too. I understand it; he still thinks he shouldn’t have to leave me. But he leaves and Shannon pops in. She loves the company. She spends time with Fin and Conrad a lot. Well when they aren’t curled up with me. Fin has been sleeping on the couch in a ball as he won’t leave. No matter how hard we tried. I took a deep breath and looked at my almost empty IV. The doctors were watching me closely. It was getting harder and harder to get through the day. I had to stay sane and act healthy for my babies. I haven’t been able to see my little baby yet. The nurses bring me picks of everything they can. She is the most precious baby in the world. Taylor finally decided on a name after I got back to the hospital room, well after he chewed me out for leaving. Avery Jamey Andrews. AJ for short. Toremember Avery and everything he is doing and has done. He was there and I fished started to fall in love with Taylor, and he was letting me live to be with him.

“How are you feeling Bailey?” I turned my head to look at the nurse who came to change my IV bag.

“I don’t-” I took a heavy breath of pain, “too well.” She nodded at me changing the bag.

“I’ll go get your doctor.” She patted my hand and walked out. Shannon took Fin and Conrad out for some food. The doctor came in maybe 5 minutes later checking out my eyes and my temperature. He sighed.

“Sweetheart we can’t wait any longer. We need to prepare you for surgery. Your body can’t hold out any longer.” He sighed.

“But AJ is going for her heart surgery soon.” I said trying to keep my eyes open. He shook his head.

“I can’t let you get out of the surgery Bailey. You need it now. I’m sorry. I’ll send in a nurse to get you ready.” I sighed nodding. I didn’t feel good, and I wanted to feel better. I just wish I was there for AJ.

“Okay.” I whispered as he walked out of the room. Mika, Jayden’s pregnant girlfriend walked into the room.

“Morning sweetheart.” She was pregnant right now, but not that much. About a month left. She got a job here and was my favorite nurse. “You ready for me to help ya?” I nodded. “I’ve had a doctor call the Commander to get Taylor here before you go in.” I nodded weakly at her my eyes closing. I woke up to the sound of feet around me. I opened them to see Taylor looking me over.

“Hey Baby.” He whispered smiling at me. I stared at him my body too weak to do anything else. Stroked my face. “I love you so much. You be strong for me okay?” I nodded at him as he kissed me. “I’ll be here when you get out of here.” He cleared his throat as a Mika whispered to him making him pull back. “I love you.” I looked around as a bunch of nurses pulled me out of the room and down the hall way. The hall way that always haunted my nightmares, to the Operating Room……

“They will do their best with her Taylor.” Mika said putting her hand on Taylor’s arm. He nodded.

“I’m going to go to AJ to see her off before her heart surgery.” Mika nodded but stopped as a cramp went through her. She took a deep breath holding onto Taylor. “You alright?” He asked helping her sit down. She shook her head.

“I’ve had these all day…I think I’m in…” She gasped as a puddle formed on the floor. Taylor jumped up and hit the call button for a nurse before she even finished her sentence. “I think I’m in labor.” She whimpered as nurses ran in. “Oh ow!” She gasped as Taylor helped her up. “Go to AJ.” She said to Taylor as the nurses helped her into a wheelchair to go to the Labor and Delivery Floor. He nodded getting on the elevator and rides down to the NICU. He washed his hands before slipping into a sterile gown. He walked over to the little pink blanket over the incubator.

“Hi Baby.” He whispered making AJ move around at the sound of her Daddy’s voice. He put his hand in taking her little hand in his.

“Taylor.” He looked up at the doctor who stood in from on him. “We are taking AJ to surgery. To fix her heart.” He stoked AJ’s head. “I know Bailey just went in, but we have had this planed. She needs it.” He nodded.

“I know.” He looked back at the doctor. “Take care of my little girl alright?” The doctor nodded. He took the little blanket off before unhinging the incubator. Taylor watched as they wheeled AJ away from him. He walked out of the room and into the waiting room. He sat down silently and started to cry….

A/N: I know, I know it has literally been forever. I've tried so much to write for this story...but I can't. I wanted to take this farther than I have it. But I can't write another word. This is it for now. I know it's short and crappy but it's all I got. I'm so sorry. I promise I'm going to come back later on and make another story but for now it's the end of the line for Bailey, Taylor, Fin, Conrad, and little AJ. But they'll show up again, randomly. I'm sorry to disapoint everyone on how terrible the story is. I'm terribly sorry. I hope everyone understands. I have two other stories I have going for me if you want to read them. I'm sorry again :( Forgive me
