Chapter 6

I went over to the nurses' station and asked if it could be possible for him to be discharged earlier. The nurse from before told me it would be possible, but he would a couple more hours of sleep. She went into the room and in ten minutes, Luke was detached from all the monitors. I found the box for the ring and snuck the ring back in. By now the anesthesia was wearing off. As we exited the hospital, we thanked everyone and left.
