Christine headed for the double doors that lead to the ER[即Emergency Room]. She entered Rm. 105 with her heart in her throat[提心吊胆]. A nurse was leaning over a heart monitor, adjusting the controls. Christine glanced at her daughter. A pale-faced little girl with a bandage[绷带] on her head laid there in a bed that looked ten times bigger than her body.
        The ER nurse on duty turned around when she heard Christine come in. “I’m so sorry. They were hit by a drunk driver,” she said. “The other car hit the passenger side. Anna’s in an induced[诱导] coma[昏迷], and she has swelling[肿胀] in her brain. Dr. Harland induced the coma to try and bring the swelling down.”
         Christine pulled a chair close to her daughter’s bed and held her hand. “I love you so much, baby.” She squeezed her hand three times, their family symbol for “I love you.” Then she put her head down on the bed and wept. She sat up suddenly when she thought she felt three squeezes back. She did it again. There was no response this time, but she knew she had felt it. “I’m right here, baby. Wake up, please, wake up…”
         Christine spent every waking moment with Anna for the next two weeks, talking to her, singing to her, praying for her, and crying for her. It was Christmas Eve and Christine had decorated Anna’s room with lights and a miniature[小型的] tree. She turned on the radio and tuned into a station playing Christmas carols.
        克里斯汀走向通往急救室的双开门,进入105房,心跳到了嗓子眼里。一位护士正俯身看着心脏监护器,调整控制设置。克里斯汀望向女儿。瘦小的女儿脸色苍白,头上扎着绷带,躺在一张看上去比她身体大十倍的病床上。
        值班的急救室护士看到克里斯汀进来后,转过身来对她说:“很遗憾,她们被一个醉驾司机撞到了。肇事车撞上了副驾驶座。安娜现在处于诱导式昏迷状态,她的大脑里有肿块。哈兰德医生对她进行诱导式昏迷,尝试消肿。”
        克里斯汀拉了一张椅子靠着女儿的床坐下,握住她的手。“我真的很爱你,宝贝。”她轻轻地握了握女儿的手三次,这是他们家表达“我爱你”的方式,然后低头抵着床哭了起来。她猛地坐了起来,因为她感觉到女儿给了她三次轻握的回应。于是她再轻握了三下。这次没有回应,但是她知道女儿能感觉得到。“我就在这儿,宝贝。醒醒,求你了,快醒醒……”
        接下来的两个星期,克里斯汀一起床就片刻不离地守着安娜,对她说话,给她唱歌,为她祈祷,也为她哭泣。圣诞前夜到了,克里斯汀用小灯和一棵迷你圣诞树装饰安娜的病房。她打开收音机,调到一个正在播放圣诞颂歌的频道。
注:爱是人生中最美丽的奇迹。无论何时何地,爱总是相伴相随。元旦佳节之际,让我们为你送去爱的祝福。
