“Then why has she had seizure.”
“Her body is reacting to exhaustion. From speaking to her when she arrived she’s been living off three to four hours sleep. That’s not enough for her body to recharge her body is giving up on her. She needs to get more sleep. She needs to eat well and take a good amount of water. she needs to start looking after herself otherwise this will keep happening. We are happy to discharge her.”
“Thank you,” Bette said. “I will look after her.”
“It’s going to take a few hours to get her discharged, we are going to give her some medication. Some to help her sleep. We need to make sure that we can keep her calm and healthy.”
“Thank you, she will do better at home,”
“You don’t live in the city?”
“No, we have a ranch ten miles away. the air is better there. she’s happier there”
“The air being better. she needs a few days rest. She needs to listen to her body.”
“I’ll be back later to sign her out. but I warn you, if she doesn’t start looking after herself, she’s going to end up back here.” he was very serious and Bette knew that she had to try and help her wife rest.
Bette and Shane had got Tina home and helped her to bed, she went to sleep as soon as her head hit the pillow and Bette and Shane had left her. Bette opened the fridge and took out a couple of bottles of water and passed one Shane.
“You must be relieved that she’s home,” Shane said as she sat on a stool at the island.
“I am, she’s scared me in the last few hours.”
“She needs to listen to her body,”
“I don’t think we will be out much in the next couple of week. I want her home and safe. I need to look after her.”
“I can understand that,” Shane said.
“I can’t lose her Shane.”
“You’re not going to lose her.” Shane said slowly. “She’s just going to have to look after herself better.”
“I didn’t know she wasn’t getting enough sleep. She’s been living off about three hours a day. that’s terrible. Her mind must be tired all the time.”
“She needs to talk to you,”
“She does talk to me, I just think since Claire she’s not been sleeping. I need to be here for her more.”
“You’re doing amazingly. We will all support you and Tina.”
“Thank you, you’re a good friend,” Bette smiled. she yawned.
“Right I’m going to leave, you need to sleep as well. You need to rest.”
“I will, thanks Shane,”
“Call me if you need me,” Shane said as she left.
Bette locked up the house, before heading upstairs, she waked into the bedroom and smiled, as Tina was sleeping on her stomach in the middle of the bed. The sheets had slipped down her back she was fast asleep.
Bette stripped, she showered and then slipped on a tank top and shorts. Bette got into her side of the bed and smiled as she opened her arms and Tina moved her in her sleep to wrapped herself around Bette. Bette kissed the top of her wife’s head before drifting off to sleep.
