Getting past the pain- Part 9
slumped to the floor in Bo's arms after passing out. when she wouldn't wake up, he began to panic.
Bo: Dam it Nora.
Don't do this to me. Wake up.
He put his head down and listened to her heart beat. It was then that he realized she
Bo: Oh God.... NO.... No you don't... You are NOT dying on me you hear? Your NOT.
began to perform CPR he thought breifly about calling an ambulance. He knew it was probably the smart thing to do but he couldn't
risk it. Instead he called Marty, who promised to keep things as quiet as possible. Within minutes she was walking in the
door with her medical bag.
Marty: What happened Bo?
Bo: I'm not really sure. We were coming home from a carnival
and she just collapsed in my arms.
Marty: She didn't go on any rides did she?
Bo: No. We just played a few
games and sat and talked on the grass. Then....
Marty: What? (pause) Bo, you have to tell me. I need to know everything
If I'm going to help her.
Bo: There's not really much to tell. She kissed me. That's all.
Marty: Ok, so how
did she react to that? Was she tense at all?
Bo: She said she was a little uncomfortable towards the end. But Marty,
she's dealing with alot these days. It's almost impossible to avoid stress.
Marty: What else?
Bo: What do
you mean what else? Isn't that enough?
Marty: It would be if it was the truth. I think there's more.
and hawing a little): Well, we did talk about our past. And I... I told her I wanted her back. I told her I loved her.
Oh Geese. That means she's on overload. We've got to get her to a hospital fast.
Bo: Why? What's going on?
She could lose the baby.
Bo watched in agony as they carried her away on a stretcher. He would have done anything to
take her place right now and it killed him to think what might happen to her after everything she's endured. Somehow he had
to find a way to make it better.
Marty: Bo? You coming?
Bo: I'm right behind you.
He climbed into the
ambulance that Marty ended up calling and placed his hand in hers. He took his other hand and began to brush the stray hair
out of her face.
Bo: Baby it's ok. I'm right here. Everything is going to be all right. I promise.
got to the hospital, they were already rushing her into the emergency room. All he could do was stand on the sidelines and
Bo: I love you Nora. You're going to be just fine.
He watched as they hooked her up to a million different
machines and it broke his heart. She just had to be all right. There was simply no alternative. as they continued to work
on her, he was reminded of another time he almost lost her so many years ago.
Sometimes I don’t understand you, red. How could you want to go
something like this alone? I thought that’s what love was
all about, you share everything in someone’s life, all of
even the pain. Maybe you didn’t really know just how much I
you. Maybe I didn’t tell you enough, maybe it wasn’t clear,
I love you. I love you more than anyone’s ever loved
And if you can pull through this, I swear, I’ll prove it.

(she slowly opens her eyes) Hey bright eyes. Nora? Nora, can you see?
Bo: I’m right here, sweetheart.
What are you doing here?
Bo: Nora, can you see me?
Yeah. I can see.
Bo: You can see! I’m sorry, I’m sorry,
okay, okay, but you can see,
Bo: Are you sure?
I can see!
Bo: Really? Well, okay, what am I wearing?
You’re wearing a really goofy grin.
Bo: You can see!
What are you doing here? What are you doing here, you aren’t
Bo: Yeah, I know that, but you relax, all right? You’re
be recovering right now.
How did you find out?
Bo: Look, that’s not important, the only
thing that matters right
now is that you’re fine and you can
Nora: But I don’t understand…
Honey, listen, we’ve got all the time in the world to talk
whatever it is that you want to talk about. Right now, I
want to get
Ben and I want him to get in here and check you out,
(crying) Don’t leave…
Bo: All right, honey, just relax,

won’t let go of his hand) Hey,

Nora: I thought I was doing the right thing.

Nora: You are angry with me.
All I feel tonight is gratitude. I am so grateful that you’re
to be all right, that you still have your eyesight, because

Nora: (laughs) Bo! We can’t.
Sure we can, we have something to celebrate.

through the window after snapping out of his daydreamns): I got you back you back then Red. I'll get you back now. You just
keep fighting. Keep fighting baby. I'll be there.
He was then interupted by the doctors coming out of the emergency
room. It didn't look good. He could tell by the look on their faces.
Bo: How is she doc?
