A few hours later, Bette wakes up, Tina notice it because of the beeping sound of the machines increases in rhythm. She jumps up and takes a seat on the bedside as she takes Bette’s hand in hers. She sees that Bette slowly tries to open her eyes.
“Hey baby, finally you’re awake.” Tina softly says.
“Wh… what happened?” Bette asks as soon as she sees that she is at the hospital and not in her own bed.
“You fainted at home and hit your head and we couldn’t wake you up.” Tina softly recalls the incident to Bette.
“I’m sorry.” Bette whispers.
“Oh babe, don’t be. I’m just so glad you’re okay.” Tina says and moves her hand to Bette’s face so she can wipe the tears away with her thumb.
“H.. how long have I been out?” Bette asks.
“Well, it’s now 11 pm. Which means about 5 hours. When you got here, the doctors did scans and tests. They were concerned about how hard the hit to the head was, if it had done any damage.” Tina starts.
“Did those say anything?” Bette asks, afraid to get the answers.
“They didn’t show anything. Cancer is in remission. No new growth. So that is really good news, might be a concusion, but that’s it. They were also in to say that they might have to postpone the last radiation a few days because of this incident. But they will evaluate tomorrow afternoon.” Tina tells Bette about when have happened while she was sleeping.
“Oh!” Bette replies.
“They were only talking about a few days delay, babe.” Tina reassures Bette that this is not a big setback.
“Do they know what caused me to faint?” Bette asks in a whisper.
“No. But it might just be because you stood up to fast in combination with low blood pressure and when you got up so quickly, it just dropped, and you fainted.” Tina replies as she dries a tear away.
“I’m sorry Tee. I didn’t mean to scare you.” Bette says as she reaches for Tina’s hand.
“When all this is over. I’m taking you away for a long and nice vacation.” Tina whispers as she leans her forehead down, close to Bette’s and softly kisses her.
