“Hush, hush hush,” Anna rocked as Bethany relatched and placed her tiny hand on top of her breast. “Good girl,” Anna sighed smiling at her baby.
The twenty seven hour flight back from Iraq, had left Randy exhausted. He frantically entered the hospital room as the nurses unplugged her monitors and rushed her off to the OR. “Baby’s in trouble.” The nurse directed Anna to turn. She obeyed as they rolled her side to side and placed the oxygen on her face. “Someone do something with dad, I’m losing Mom!” The bed was pulled from the room as the team of nurses pushed her down the hall.
Four hours later she opened her eyes. Randy was holding their daughter. He explained something about an abruption. She couldn’t follow all the noise and medical nonsense people kept attacking her with. “Please, may I see her?”
She looked at her baby’s face and back toward the unlit Christmas tree. Bethany was fussing again. “Jesus loves you this I know,” She sang ever so softly Bethany looked up from her intended goal meeting her mother’s eyes. “Yes Jesus loves you,” Bethany smiled letting out a high pitched giggle, than reached for her mothers’ breast again.
The lights of the tree flickered on; Anna looked up as Randy tossed some cedar chips on the fire. “I’m sorry for waking you.”
He sat behind her drawing her body against his, “I love you.”
She relaxed in his embrace, the fire cracked, whistled then the scent of sweet cedar drifted into the room.
