|STORY OF A MOTHER AND HER LAST DAY IN THE HOSPITAL.|
In The Hospital I can only see the daylight through the windows. It's nearing summer time, so I don't even see the nights; usually I'm sleeping by then. I was waiting for this day. This was the day that I prayed for through the four days that I spent here. How I got here, I'll never really know.

What am I going to do when I go home? How is it going to feel? Will I feel pain? I don't know; I would like to go and visit my father. My father was the perfect man. I haven't seen him in years. I wonder if he'll even recognize me. I have grown a lot skinnier since he's last seen me. I used to have long hair, now I have no hair. Chemotherapy can do that sometimes.
