I feel confused.
I'm trying so hard to open my eyes. Nothing happens. Let me try again. I am doing everything I can. I hear something.
"Garren, open your eyes."
What's going on? I am opening my eyes.
"Good Garren! We see you trying! Open you eyes all the way!"
It's so hard. It's so bright! Why are they yelling at me to open my eyes? What's going on?
My nose itches. I can't move anything. Where am I? Everything's blurry. What's going on?
"Garren! It's Mom!"
Mom? Mom I'm here! I can't see you! I can hear you...I can't move! I'm trying to talk...but nothing happens. What's going on? Mom?
"Garren...It's Mom. You're in the hospital."
What? The hospital? Why?
"Garren...It's going to be ok. You had a headache at school. We brought you to the hospital. The doctors did surgery on your brain. And now you look great! You're going to be fine."
Fine? Headache? Surgery? I must be dreaming. This can't be real. I've had these dreams before. Where everything is moving in slow motion. You try to run and you can't get away. Yes, this must be a dream. I just need to wake up.
Dad - what's going on? I can't move. I think I must be dreaming.
"Garren...you're in the hospital. Garren. Open your eyes, Buddy. Let me see your eyes so I can talk to you."
Dad...I'm so tired. I can't keep my eyes open. It's so hard.
"Garren, I know it's hard. I know you're trying. We're in the hospital. We're going to help you get better. We have a lot of work to do. It's going to be hard work. But I've seen you work hard before, and we're going to do this together."
Do what? What work? I'm just dreaming...I just need to wake up...
Everything is so blurry.
I can't move.
I'm so tired.
Why is it so dark?
