Author's Note - I just wanted to thank all my readers and the people who reviewed over the time it look me to write this story. Sorry it took so long yall. I hope yall enjoy though.
"Mr. and Mrs. Scott?" The doctor said from behind them.
Hearing someone say their names caused Brooke and Lucas to shoot glances towards the person who'd just called their names. When they realized who it was exactly they broth straightened up.
"Hi, I'm Doctor Matthew Terrence, and I was the surgeon who worked on your son, Aiden." The doctor said as he walked towards them.
"How is he?"
"Why don't we sit all sit down so I can explain everything that happened to the both of you." He said as he guided them to their seats. "Okay first and foremost Aiden's going to survive…"
That was all Lucas needed to hear. Just knowing that his son was going to be okay in the end was more than enough information for him. He didn't care if Aiden had to go see specialists or if Aiden's would look different for the rest of his life, as long as Lucas had his son by his side he was perfectly content.
The next thing Lucas remembered was the doctor telling them that Aiden would need to be sent to physical therapy and would need to stay in the hospital for at least a week or until his wounds had totally healed.
"If you both would please follow me I'll take you to his recovery room, which he'll stay in until he wakes up, then we're going to move him to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, so that we can watch him carefully and make sure that everything turns out okay and there's no infections."
Brooke and Lucas followed the doctor down the white hallway to their room where their son was being treated. As they walked in hand in hand nothing could prepare them for what they were about to see.
There was their precious little baby boy covered in all these different types of tubes and hooked up to all kinds of machines. All this made Aiden look so tiny and in such bad shape. Lucas was in shock, enable to forgive himself, since he'd caused this whole accident to take place.
"He's going to be okay." Dr. Terrence said when he saw the look on both parents faces. "Don't let the machines and tubes scare you. He'll be off a lot of them as soon as he wakes up."
After about five minutes of just looking at Aiden, Brooke finally found the courage to walk over to her son's bed, sit down, and gently moved her hand under his. Lucas did the same thing about five minutes later.
Two hours later Brooke felt something move underneath her hand. She immediately looked up to see two big baby blue eyes staring straight at her.
"Hey there baby." She said in a very calming and soothing voice.
Hearing his wife talk made Lucas look up as well and then he also saw his son looking at him as well in sort of a panicky kind of way.
"Shhh… it's okay. Everything's going to be okay baby." Brooke said very soothingly while she ran her fingers threw their son's blond hair.
Three days later Ethan was released from the hospital and Aiden joined him at home two weeks later. Finally the Scott families we're back to normal and now they had other family situations to look forward to, but hopefully none so devastating.
