When Criss finally awoke he felt like he had been asleep for years. He came out of his 'cave' as he heard giggling. Criss walked to the stage and saw Trina and George kissing. For a moment Criss saw himself with Sandra doing the same thing he just wish he could have that Sandra back. Criss sighed and left through the back way. When he came back to the production office there was a not on the door for Criss that said:
I HOPE YOU HAD A RESTFUL SLEEP BECAUSE TRINA TOLD US YOU NEEDED IT. I'VE CANCELLED EVERYTHING FOR THE DAY EXPECT BELIEVE THAT YOUR CHOICE NOT MINE. MOM HAS JOHN SO WHY DON'T YOU GO HOME
Criss didn't want to go home but there was nothing else to do. As Criss drove home he wondered if the Sandra he fell in love with would ever come back to him. When Criss came home the place was quiet. "Mom must of taking the baby out"Criss said to himself. "Christopher how nice to see you". Criss looked up and saw Ms. Sunnytag. "Hey how's Sandra today?" he asked. "She seems better your mom is upstairs showing Sandra how to change a baby which I think she can do blindfolded". "What do you expect she had three boys"Criss said as he giggled. "Come on". They went upstairs and watched as Dimitra showed her how to change the baby. "Do you want to hold him?"she asked. She looked ready to say no but the baby reached out and put his tiny hand around Sandra's finger. Criss saw a tear fall down her face.
"I-I'll try" she stuttered. "Just sit down Sandra". Sandra sat down and Dimitra handed her John. "Now just relax and hold him tight"Dimitra remarked. Criss could see Sandra's arm shaking a little but once she starred into his eyes the shaking went away. "Hello little guy"Sandra said to John. "John Sandra you named him John". "John he looks like a John"she said. Criss walked in and kneeled next to Sandra. Sandra looked into Criss's eyes and tears fell down her face. "Christopher I'm so sorry for the way I actted"she apologized. Criss got up and wiped the tears from her face.
"It's all right Sandra it wasn't your fault this happened"Criss remarked and gave her a kiss on the head as the baby whimpered a little. At the apartment Trina was making dinner when the phone rang. "Hello". "Hey Trina I wanted to give you an update on Sandra"Criss remarked. "how is she today?". "Better she watched my mom change his diaper than she sat down and held him. I swear Trina once she held John I could see her coming back a little"he replied. "That's great Criss and I wanted to tell you today that Chole took her first step today". "I guess she skipped crawling and went to walking maybe she'll start talking tomorrow the little over achiever"Criss stated as Trina laughed. "Well thanks for the update on Sandra and I hope she makes more progress soon"Trina stated. "Me too" and hung up.
As the days went on Sandra was starting to bond with her song which made Criss happy every time he saw Sandra holding him. That afternoon Criss talked to Mrs Sunnytag about Sandra. "She's doing pretty good but we need to show her that we trust her I think we should leave her alone with John" she suggested. "I don't know I get nervous when I go outside just to take a call for fear that Sandra may slip back and try to hurt John"Criss replied. "I know you're nervous about that Christopher". "I'll try how long do you think we should leave them alone"Criss remarked. "How about an hour for now". "All right Christopher". When Criss got home Dimitra was outside with Sandra. "Hello ladies how are you?". "We're good just talking"Sandra remarked. Criss pulled over a chair.
"Sandra I talked to Mrs. Sunnytag today and she wants to try something. She wants you to take care of John by yourself just for an hour". Criss and Dimitra could see the fear in her eyes. "I don't know if I'm ready Christopher" she replied. "How about this I ask Trina to come over just to be there just incase but you have to take care of John like she wasn't there". "All right"she remarked. At the apartment Trina was watching television when the phone rang. "Hello". "Hey Trina it's Criss I need a favor"he said. "Why not since George took the kids to see his mom I'm bored to tears by myself". "Just come over and I'll explain everything". When Trina got there Criss was waiting for her. "So what's the favor?". "Mrs. Sunnytag wants to leave Sandra alone but she's nervous so we made a deal she has to take care of the baby and you can't help her at all unless it becomes an emergency". "All right"she remarked. We walked in as Dimitra and Sandra came down.
"Now I want you to know you're going to do fine Sandra"Dimitra replied. "Thanks Dimitra" giving her a hug. "Come on mom". Criss gave Sandra a kiss and told her that she's going to be fine. She nodded as Criss and his mom left. "Thanks for doing this Trina I'm still nervous about being alone with John"she said as her shook. Trina took her hands. "Just think of me as surport and if you have a question about crying I'll answer I can tell a feed me cry to a change me cry"she remarked. "How?". "If it smells like a sewer line broke than it's time to change the baby" Trina replied and Sandra chuckled.

At a resteraunt Criss was trying not to worry about leaving Sandra with John but Dimitra could tell. "Christopher stop worrying Sandra is going to be fine with John" she assured her son. "I don't know my mind just keep bringing me back to when I saw Sandra with a pillow in her hand read to smother John"Criss remarked. She put her hand on her son's and told him not to worry that if something happens Trina was there for back up. "All right now let's order I'm straving"Criss said. At the house Trina was making some tea for her and Sandra as Sandra came down. "John is changed, fed, and in his crib asleep".
"Nice job Sandra and you did it all by yourself"Trina remarked giving her a hug. "Thanks for being here Trina I don't think I could of handle this on my own right now but knowing if things got sewrious you would be here to help me"Sandra stated. "I'm just happy the Sandra I know is coming back I could tell Criss missed you" she replied. "I'm surprise Criss hasn't called us to check up on us" Trina stated. Trina went into her pocket and took out Criss's blackberry. "Criss isn't the only one who knows how to pick pocket" as Sandra laughed. At the resteraunt Criss was at the bathroom about to call when he realized he didn't have his phone on him.
TRINAhe thought and went back to the table where Dimitra was waiting. "Were you checking up on Sandra?"she asked. "I was but I think Trina pulled a fast one on me by taking my phone when she gave me a hug"Criss replied as Dimitra tried not to laugh. When Dimitra and Criss fianlly got home Sandra and Trina were talking. "How was dinner?"Trina inquired. Dimitra and Criss sat down. "I can see Criss ordered too much as usually". "I feel like my stomach's about to explode"Criss replied sitting up. "I'm going to bed good night ladies" and Dimitra lwent to bed. That night Sandra woke up to hear John crying. She saw Criss sleeping so she got up and went into the nursery. Sandra walked in and picked up John. "What's the matter John you want a midnight snack come on let's go heat you up a bottle. A few minutes later Criss woke up with a bit of indestion.
"That's the last time I have a late dinner"he muttered. As Criss went to the bathroom for some relief he looked down and saw Sandra feeding John. "Is that good yea". Criss just watched as she burped John after he had finished the bottle. "You have your daddy's appettie at least you know when you've had enough" as John giggled a little. "Come on let give you a clean diaper and than it's back to bed". Criss went to the bathroom as Sandra brought John back to the nursery. After Sandra had finished she went back to bed and saw Criss was still asleep. She got back into bed and went back to sleep as well.
The next day George and Trina brought the kids over to Criss's house so Dimitra could see them. Outside Sandra was playing peek a boo with John as Criss just watched with a smile on his face. "Yo Criss"A voice called out. Criss looked up and saw Trina and George with the kids. "Hey guys" giving George a hug. "How is everything?"Trina inquired. "Good how are the girls?". "Good". George put April down and she walked to Criss while Chole just held on to the table. "Very good April"Criss remarked as he picked her up. "Well this guy needs a change or a sewer line broke" Sandra stated getting up. "I think this one needs it too"Criss added handing April to Trina. "Come on maybe we should have arace on who can change the fastest"Trina suggested. "No fair April doesn't give you shower when you change her"Sandra replied as they went upstairs. "So how was the vacation with Aunt Stella".
"Don't tell Trina this but my mom gave me divorce papers that she had drawn up". "Are you serious?" Criss said with his jaw on the floor. "Yea but I ripped them up I wouldn't do that my mom needs to have her head looked at if she thinks I'd do that". "Do what George?" Dimitra asked coming out with some drinks. "Believe me mom you don't want to know Aunt Stella has gone off the deep end" Criss replied. The girls came back down and outside. "Hello Dimitra"Trina remarked giving her a kiss. "Hello Trina is this April she's so adorable"she replied giving her a kiss. April smiled. "Granmie"she replied. "That's cute she thinks Dimitra is her grandmom" George remarked. Dimitra smiled as a tear ran down Trina's face. "Dimitra can you take April I have something in my eye" she asked. "Sure". She gave April to Dimitra and went inside. "She all right George?". "Yea today is her mom's birthday and she wanted to go put flowers on her grave but since there's a hurricane in North Carolina they had to cancel the flight"George remarked.
"Criss can you watch John for a minute I want to make sure she's all right" Sabdra asked. "All right" and she went inside to find Trina in the kitchen wiping away the tears. "You allright Trina?". "Yea when April called Dimitra granmie it just made me think of how my parents are never going to meet them" Trina remarked. "Sometimes I wonder what Criss's dad would of thought of me or the child we made". "I know my parents would of loved George"Trina replied. "Come on let's go outside and have some fun with our husband and children". We went outside and Criss and George were watching the girls while John was in his playpin asleep. "I see someone got tired"Sandra remarked giving Criss a kiss. "Trina you all right Geoge told us-". "It's all right guys I'm good"Trina remarked giving George a hug.
"I was just thinking in April and maybe Chole's mind Dimitra is their grandmother so Dimitra is their surrogate grandmother"Sandra suggested. "That intestering thought Sandra I never thought of it that way" Trina replied. "Why not my mom considers you ladies the daughters she never had"Criss added. "I don't know you looked pretty cool in drag playing Crissy" George said giggling. Criss rolled his eyes as everyone laughed.

While they were at Criss's house George and Trina put the twins in some bathsuits with swimmies and went for a swim in Criss's pool. Sandra even put John in a little floatie so that he could have some fun. Dimitra just sat at the edge with her feet in the water and watched everyone. "Come on mom it's cool considering it feel like it's a hundred and two out"Criss suggested. "I'm fine Christopher consider me a volunteer lifeguard". The kids were having fun in the pool including John who was laughing. Dimitra got up and went inisde but a few seconds later they all heard something break. "Mom"Criss called out, but no answer. "George watch the kids"Trina said as Criss and Trina got out of the pool. They walked in and found Dimitra on the floor unconscious. "Oh my god mom can you hear me mom!"Criss called out to her.
Trina checked for a pulse. "She has a pulse Criss " as she started to come to. "What happened?"she asked sitting up a little. "You passed out Dimitra" Trina replied. "I'm going to call for an amblunce mom"Criss suggested. "Hold on Criss I have a better idea Marcus's sponser at Gambler's anonymous is a doctor I'll ask him to come over to take a look at Dimitra and if it's her heart we'll call for the amblunce"she stated. "All right" and gave the phone to her. "Hello Doctor Loins's office how may I help you?". "Yes is the doctor in I'm a friend of his". "Hold on please" and put Trina on hold. "Hello Nicholas Loin". "Nick it's Trina, Marcus's brother"she stated. "Oh yes how can I help you Trina". "I'm at my boss's house and his mother passed out for a few seconds. I was wonderign if you could come over and take a look at her". "Sure just give me the address and I'll be right over" he remarked. She gave him the address and hung up.

When the doctor arrived Dimitra was laying on the couch with a cold cloth to her head. Trina walked him over as Criss sat across from his mother scared to death that it was her heart giving her trouble again. "Come on Criss let's go outside and let the doctor take a look at her"Trina suggested. Knowing arguing wouldn't help he went with Trina. "God what if it's her heart"Criss muttered sitting in a chair. "Criss take a breath she probably tripped and lost her balance" Trina said. Tears started to well up as the thought of what she went through the first time started to play back in his mind. The fear that she was going to die or worse end up needed a heart transplant. The doctor came out as Criss and Trina sat up. "How my mom?"Criss asked. "She's all right Christopher she has heat stroke". "So it wasn't her heart". "No just the heat got to her and not drinking a lot of water" the doctor replied.
"Do you think I should bring her to the hospital?"Criss asked. "No just keep her inside during this heat wave, make sure she's drinking enough water, and if she needs to go out in this heat make her bring an umbrella or keep her in a shaded area"the doctor remarked. "Thank you for coming over"Trina said. "No problem and if you need me again here's my number for emergencies"the doctor remarked giving Criss a card. Criss showed the doctor out as I gave George a heads up. After the doctor left Criss sat on the the small table next to the couch. "You gave me quite a scare mom"Criss stated. "I guess I should of gone into the pool with the rest of you"she joked as Criss gave his mom a kiss.
"You just relax mom". I walked over as Criss came out. "I called George to let him know that Dimitra's fine". "I'm glad Sandra and George took the kids out for some ice cream"Criss stated wiping the tears from his face. Trina gave Criss a hug. "See I told you everything would be all right"she whispered into his ear.
