That night Criss tried to sleep but the nightmare of what happened kept playing back in his mind. Being run over by the motorcycle and being hit in the chest with a steel pipe. Criss woke up with a jolt. Criss wiped the sweat off his face as the nurse came in. “You all right Mr. Sarantakos” as she checked to see if Criss had a fever. “No just had a nightmare” he replied as the nurse wiped off some sweat from Criss's brow. "Do you want me to talk to your doctor about giving you something to help you sleep?” she asked. “No”Criss remarked. “All right just beep me if you want me to” and she left. The next day Costa was on the phone with Gerard. “He’s awake but he’s going to need a lot of help when Criss comes home” Costa replied. “Like what?”Gerard inquired. “Getting dressed, showering some of the stuff we take for granted” he stated.
“Everyone here wants Criss to come home safe and sound when do you think you’ll be coming back”. “Probably when Criss gets out of the hospital it’s like a five hour drive from The Luxor to the hospital so we all got hotel rooms” Costa replied. “Just keep us update” Gerard said and hung up. That same day Dimitra and JD came to see Criss. When they came in Criss was sitting in a chair with his legs up. “I see someone’s out of bed” JD remarked as his mother gave Criss a hug. “They thought I should get out of bed for a while” as he yawned. “Didn’t sleep much?”. “No I kept having flashbacks of my accident I just don’t understand why it happened?” he asked. “The guy’s schizophrenic and off his medication” JD replied. “Great he’ll probably get off with time in physic hospital” Criss said rubbing his side. “Still hurting”. “Yea,” Criss replied. “I just feel like a science project gone wrong”. “Don’t think that Christopher you were lucky to survive this” his mother remarked. “I guess so” he stated.
Then the doctor came in. “How you feeling Criss?” he asked. “My chest still hurt” Criss replied. “Your chest will hurt for a while Criss we had to break your ribs to get to the bleeder”. “When will those metal things come out” pointing to the stuff sticking out of Criss’s legs. “We’re going to take an x-ray later on today to see how the bones are healing and we’ll take it from there,” The doctor remarked
