She woke up hours later and felt as if she was in some kind of mystical dream world. “ hailey, you did incredibly well with your surgery. How are you feeling?”
“ dizzy, tired, but good.”, hailey said with a slight smile across her face.
“ good because your mom and dad are here.” the doctor gave a smile to the patient he had for years.
Hailey’s parents came in and were absolutely ecstatic and acted as any parents would act when their child was freed of a lifelong bond. Everything was finally going in the right direction for hailey smith.
