At the hospital Criss woke up and saw a nurse fixing his IV. “I see someone got some sleep last night”. “Yea it feels good not to wake up with your heart pounding in your chest” Criss replied wiping his eyes. “I’ll get you some water so you can wash up” and the nurse left as Costa came in. “Hey bro how you feeling?”he asked. "Better where’s JD, George and mom?”he asked. “George went back to Las Vegas, JD was on the phone with Lynn and mom decided to wait until JD was done but I think she’s nervous to see you the way you are” Costa replied sitting next to Criss. “Who wouldn’t I feel like a mummy with my legs like this and wearing this stupid diaper contraption around my pelvis” Criss replied trying to get comfortable. “Just give it time Criss it’s just to keep some of the bones in your pelvis in place so they can heal around some of the metal” Costa explained. “I’m going to be fun at airport security with all the metal in me now” Criss remarked as the nurse came in. “Here we go some water to wash your face” the nurse stated.
“I’ll get your toothbrush and some soap from the bathroom” Costa added. As the nurse was opening the shade she saw Criss was sweating a little. “You all right Criss?”she asked. “Yea I’m just a little hot all of a sudden” Criss replied. As the nurse checked his temperature Costa came back out and asked what was going on. “It seem Criss has a fever I’m going to call his doctor and find out if he wants some blood work done” and the nurse left. “Great now I have a fever” Criss remarked laying back in his bed. “Don’t worry Criss it just means you might have an infection and your body is fighting it” as Costa wet the cloth. Criss was washing his face as Costa got his toothbrush ready. “I wish I never went on that trip than this wouldn’t of happened” he replied drying his face. “Don’t think that way Criss it wasn’t anyone’s fault that some guy decided to go off his medicine” Costa explained as the nurse came in. “Well it looks like I got to draw some blood” the nurse stated coming in with her material.
Criss turned to look at Costa. “Still got that phobia of needles considering what you’ve been through in life” Costa said. Criss winced as she poked the needles to get blood. “There we go all done” as she put a Band-Aid on it. The nurse left with a smile as Costa watched her leave. “Why don’t you ask her out” Criss remarked. Costa giggled as Criss brushed his teeth.
