The next morning Criss was relaxing whne a knock came to the door. "Come in" Criss replied. The door opened and Dimitra and I came in with the kids behind us. Criss smiled as Nathan was helping his sisters walk in. "How you feeling today?" I asked as I closed the door. "Sore"he said. Then I noticed Criss had an IV as I looked around I saw a crash cart in his room and oxygen. Nathan started to tug on my pant leg. "What's the matter Nathan?"I asked. "Need to go potty"he replied. "I'll take him" and Dimitra left with Nathan as Zoey and Verdia were walking around. "Criss did something happen last night?". "I had to be giving antibodics but they gave me the wrong kind and I went to Anaphylactic shock. They said I was dead for thirty seconds". "Oh my god" as I felt my heart go right down into my stomach. "But I'm fine now Antonia don't worry isn't the first time it happened". I breathed a sigh of relief as Zoey tried climbing but I got her and brought over Verdia who was ready to climb into a chair.
"How are these two girls doing?" Criss asked as I gave him Verdia. "They've been walking like crazy Zoey even tried to climb up the stairs untill your mother caught her. Nathan's been a good big brother keeping his eyes on them when I can't". Dimitra came with Nathan who was sucking on a lolipop. "Where did he get that Dimitra?"I asked. "One of the nurses gave it to him since he went to the potty all by himself". I gave Nathan a kiss. Very good Nathan I signed. "That's very good Nathan you're becoming a big boy"Criss replied. "Can we give daddy gift?" Nathan asked. "They're in the bag Nathan can you get them?". Nathan walked over and took out two gifts than he walked back. "What's you got man?"Criss asked. "Rthday gifts for daddy" he remarked as Criss tried not to laugh. I put Nathan on my lap as he gave the gift to Criss. His mother took Verdia as Zoey held on to my leg standing. Criss opened it and it was a family picture of all of us. "That's wonderful this is going in my office at The Luxor"Criss replied.
"Open this"Nathan remarked giving it to him. "All right buddy"Criss said. "Me pick it out all by self"Nathan stated with a smile. "And with a little help from my grandmother he wrapped it too"I added. "Really well let's see". Criss opened it and it was a leather jacket with his insigna embrodded on the back. "Nathan this is awesome you've got good taste" and gave Nathan a kiss. Nathan blushed than Verida and Zoey started to cry a little. "I think someone is hungry". "And needs a change"Criss added. "I think that's our cue to let you rest but I'll come back later on all right". Dimitra gave Criss a kiss and Criss said good-bye to everyone as we left.
