IN JACK'S HOSPITAL ROOM

Nick stepped into the room first and almost started cryign his eyes
out at
what he saw.

Jack was lying there so helpless barely haning on to life.

He sat down in he chair nearest to the bed and gently grabbed Jack's
hand
caerful on the heart monitor.

Nick watched his son's heart rate. He then realized that hes been
taking his
children for granted. HE watched as Jack's chest was machically rising
and
falling as air was forced into his lungs. He stared at his son. THere
were
bruised everywhere. His right leg was in traction haning over the bed.
What
was probably the most disturbing was the ube sticking out of his son;s
mouth
and the tape across his son;smouth keeping it in place. There were
machines
everywhere. HE realized that these machines were needed to keep his
child
alive.

HE had seen Jack like this before and he had hoped he never would nhave
toa
gain but obviously he was wrong.

He felt Maggie place a han don his shoulder and he then thoguth of hte
last
time Jack had been in this state.

FLASHBACK

15 years ago

i don't know the mom's name so we're just gonna call her Grace

Grace wsa laying in a hospital bed rubbing her pregnant stomach. She
was only
7 months pregnant and her water broke this morning. This hadn't
happened with
her two previous children. She had just recemtly fund out hat this baby
was a
boy like her other two.

She was terrified of loosing this baby. She knew she'd ahve to deliver
soon
but hte longer this abyw as in the womb the better chance he had.

Nck was sittign there holding her hand with a hand placed on her
stomach.
This baby was so tiny. THe doctor then came ina nd said it was time for
ehr
c-section. She coudln't deliver vainally b/c the bay was breached.
They also
couldn't wait b/c the baby ws getting aggitated. THey needed to get him
out.

Grace was lying there she could feel the doctors pulling her son out of
her.
Shewas listenign closely for a cry. She felt the baby be pulled
completely
out of her and she heard a very faint cry. It was so weak.

THe Doctor put him to where she coudl catcha glance of him an dhe was
gorgeous.

out of hte corner of her eye she saw a team of neonatologist over her
baby
boy. She saw one inserting a tube down his tiny throat. after teh
doctors had
him stable enougt he was place din an incubater and wheele dout fo the
delivery room.

The nest tiem her and Nick saw him he looked so weak.

Nick touched the baby's tiny arm. HE was afraid to put too much
pressure in
case the baby would break.

They decided to name the baby Jack Michael Savage.

Jack gto strogner everyday three weeks afte rJakc was born Nick was
allowed
toh old his son for the first time. This bbay was so much stronger than
the
one that he was afraid to touch.

Jack was able to go home on his due date 2 months after his birth.

Garce na dNIck walked inot the house and saw Jimmy sitting onth e couch
with
Chris and Sam.

Both toddlers were excited to see their new baby brother.

Nick looked down at the tiny baby in his arms and his he baby's
forehead
thankful that he had made it through.

END OF FLASHBACK

Nick sat there stroking his unconscious son;s hand.

He gently placed a kiss on the boy's forehead.

He didn't know if he's be able to go through this again. He knew though
that
he'd ahve to for the his son especially Jack.
