| Lynne Hanson was never more relieved to see her daughter wheeled back to oncology. The cancer had fled her mind when Sariah told her Autumn was clinging to life.
" Does God answer prayers or what?" Jamison asked Lynne.
"Yes, He most certainly does."
"Where was God when that crazy nurse gave me the pain medication."
"Well, God was there all along. However, you'll be relieved to know that that particular nurse no longer works here. Doris was fired right after the incident."
"How many patients did she have to kill before they understood what was going on?" Autumn asked bitterly.
"Autumn, you should be thankful that Sariah was on duty, otherwise, you would be dead. You're someone special to her, as is Jamison."
"Really, me?" they asked in unison. They looked at each other and burst out laughing.
By this time, they had made it back to the oncology floor of the hospital. Autumn was never so happy to see her old hospital room. She gasped when she saw what had been done.
A banner that said WELCOME BACK, AUTUMN was strung along one wall. There were streamers in the doorway, along with balloons to add to the party decor.
"We're so glad you're back with us," Sariah smiled, as she helped Autumn transfer from wheelchair to hospital bed.
"I was really scared when we had to take you to the intensive care unit," Sariah said before she left the room, to chart Autumn's current condition and vitals.
