Lexia loved seeing the look on James’ face every time he looked at their son. There was so much love and adoration in his eyes and it was something that she never wanted to miss. She wanted this for the rest of her life and even though she had only just given birth to their son, she was already thinking about the fact that she wanted to give him another child someday soon. She wanted to grow their family once everything was settled with both of the restaurants. For now they had a new business and a son to focus on and that was enough in itself.
She smiled softly and chuckled a little. [b “I miss our bed and being able to lie next to you too. Mason will probably spend a couple of weeks in our room. I hope you are prepared to be woken up every few hours. There may be some sleepless nights you know.”]
Once they were home she found herself physically and emotionally relaxing. A hospital environment wasn’t exactly the best and it certainly wasn’t where either of them wanted to be. She was concerned that he wanted to make something to eat since he had broken bones but she figured it wouldn’t be long until he was back to work and she remembered how restless she got when she couldn’t do things for herself.
[b “Food sounds great. Mason is getting hungry too so I’m going to settle in the living room and feed him and then you should come and relax with us for a while. Cook something you can leave in the oven.”] She kissed him gently and disappeared into the living room.
James a bit frustrated and didn’t like the idea of a nurse having to help him get dressed as he was used to doing things on his own. He had finally been dressed in a simple sweatsuit, his anger slowly disappearing when he saw Lexia and his son. He knew that he would have to try to maintain his anger and all frustrations as his wife and Mason didn’t deserve to be yelled at for something that they had no control or responsibility for. James knew that this would be tough for him, but he just needed a little patience and he had to try his best to take care of his newborn along side Lexia. He didn’t want her to feel like she had to do everything on her own and certainly figured that his mother in law would have to return back to take care of their first home.
James didn’t want to get back to work so soon and knew he would have to take it slow, but the grand opening was coming up and he had no intentions of not going as scheduled. He would, however, have to give Gianna a heads up that he wouldn’t be of much help with his first restaurant.
Sighing out, crutches under each arm, he walked over to Lexia and smiled down at the small bundle in her arms. “Home, finally. I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed, with my wife.” James leaned down and kissed her forehead. “I hate not being close to you.” The two of them eventually finished signing out the discharge papers and headed to the car where his mother in law helped put Mason in a car seat. He didn’t want Lexia to be separated from their son and took the front seat as he would need more space for his leg.
They finally reached the house then, entering inside. He was starving, in pain, and not too keen on having to get up the stairs.
“I can maybe make us something?” He said, James knowing it was silly, but he refused to be restless. He wondered if this was how Lexia felt when pregnant.
Mason. Their baby had a good strong name now and it was something that they had both agreed on. Soon enough though, James was being wheeled away and she hated the idea of not being able to see James whenever she wanted, although he did need treatment and he needed to rest himself as he had been in a car accident after all, that was not exactly something that would not affect them at all. In fact, she was sure that it would have a massive impact on them and their plans with the restaurant, but they would manage and they would find a way; they always did.
They stayed in hospital for three more days, Lexia for monitoring since her blood pressure had been so low during the pregnancy and Joshua to make sure that he got the rest and treatment that he needed. Lexia had bonded with her son and had learned how to feed him and although she was nervous about changing him at first, she was used to it by now. It was strange how small he was, and she was scared of hurting him until she realised how easy things were.
Today they were able to go home as a family and regardless of getting off to a rocky start with James’ injury, she couldn’t wait to start being a family in their own environment. Lexia had Mason in her arms and was dressed in something comfortable for the car journey home as she made her way to James’ room and she smiled when she saw him.
[b “There he is. That’s your Daddy.”] She said as she looked down at Mason as bounced him gently. She looked back up at James then. [b “It’s time to go home babe.”]
Joshua looked at the small child there in Lexia’s arms. Mason. James smiled then, a strong name – one that would carry him through life as a man of strength and promise.
“I like it,” he said with a smile. He didn’t want to leave them – everything in James wanted to stay with his wife and his newborn son. He was weak though and James was incredibly tired. Not to mention he was in pain. It dawned on him then how this would affect his restaurant and the grand opening of there new restaurant in a few days. He couldn’t cook with a bum wrist and James could barely stand. How could he expect to get anything done? It dawned on him then that if he couldn’t take care of his restaurant in his condition, how could he help his family?
He knew that his mother in law would be there to help, but James didn’t take kindly to being babied and he would push himself to try to do things he knew that he couldn’t do while in his condition. At this point he had to relinquish control and head back to his own room. “I love you – both,” he said with a sad smile as he kissed Lexia again. “I will see you as soon as possible.” He had promised to her before sitting back down in the chair where he was wheeled away and out of the room. James could already feel anxiety – he had a new restaurant, a new child and a wife who had just given birth. James could already feel how stressed he was and was trying to relax. He could only hope that this wouldn’t completely hinder him.
He was helped into the bed then and with some medication he was no longer worrying and eventually fell asleep.
The next few days he visited Lexia and his son Mason, slowly getting physical treatment, but he wasn’t all the way good. His wrist was decent, but his leg wasn’t healed all the way and he could barely stand for long periods of time. His mother in law had offered to take the couple home and stay with them. James was cranky though, he hated not being able to take care of Lexia how he planned after she gave birth. He headed to Lexia’s room then, waiting for her to get gathered with Mason, his mother in law already packing their bag.
Lexia looked up from the baby boy in her arms to see that James had taken a seat in the chair next to her. She was worried about his condition and it was obvious the doctor was too because he was suggesting that he needed to go back to his room now that the baby had arrived and she knew that her mother wouldn’t be able to stay much longer now she had give birth because visiting hours wouldn’t allow it. She was quite nervous about being alone with the baby but she could also see that there were plenty of nurses around to help her and she would have to try and feed him and get him clothed before she could rest herself. It was strange how she suddenly found the strength to say awake and take care of their son even after the exhausting labor.
She smiled at the way James kissed her and stroked the small fist of the child that was now cuddled into her chest as though there was no where else he would rather be. He looked so happy and peaceful. They had to name him though and James was the one to prompt the discussion. [b “What do you think about Mason?”]
He could tell Lexia was exhausted and not just physically, but James wholeheartedly believed that she was capable of finishing labor and giving them the son they all had been waiting for. He squeezed Lexia’s hand back, her scream filling the room until it was overpowered by the sound of a cry. There in the doctor’s hands was his baby boy. The son he had waited for months to see. It was so surreal at that point and everything seemed to dull and blur – all he could focus on was the small naked little bean, wailing red in the face and it was a beautiful sound.
After the baby had been tended to and cleaned he was handed over to Lexia, the child quickly warming up to his mother as he nuzzled against her chest, his crying slowly dissolving into silence. Not being able to stand any longer from the pain and from the astonishment at his son’s birth, James had to take a seat in the chair, though still stayed close to the bed, close enough to see his son cradled in Lexia’s arms. He was speechless. He couldn’t believe that he had a son.
“He is perfect,” he said with a smile then when he could finally find the words. James reached up with his good hand to run his fingers through his hair, damp with sweat from the whole ordeal. He knew Lexia would need to stay in the hospital for a while, but he couldn’t wait to get home.
“Sir,” the doctor said then. “We need to get you back to your room. You can come back tomorrow.” James sighed out, he didn’t want to leave Lexia and he didn’t want to leave his newborn son. Though, James was physically exhausted and falling asleep in the chair didn’t seem promising to his health.
He came to a stand then and leaned over to kiss Lexia. He didn’t want to leave – he almost lost his life and now he had witnessed a birth. “I’ll be back in the morning, I promise.” James caressed her cheek, his thumb reaching to gently to run over the small balled up fist of his child. “What shall we call you my son?”
She looked up towards James when he spoke, knowing that he was right and that she couldn’t give up but she was so tired and she didn’t know where she was going to find the energy to make those final two pushes. It was as though she had been completely drained and even her head was dizzy as she looked to her mother and then back to James. She knew she couldn’t have done this without either of them here and she was glad that she had them pushing her to make sure that she didn’t give up so easily, not that she really had the option to give up since she had to bring their son into this world.
Lexia took a deep breath as she watched James, noticing how emotional he was getting about the whole ordeal. She needed to do this though, she needed to give birth to their son so that they could meet him finally. She squeezed his hand and started to push again, almost screaming her way through it.
[i “Good Lexia, that’s really good. Well done.”] The doctor was encouraging thought-out the birthing process and he continued to be now. [i “Make this last push a big one and he will be here.”]
That was all the encouragement she needed. One last push. She gathered every bit of energy she could find and pushed again, screaming loudly as she did but as soon as her screaming stopped, the sound of a baby’s cry filled the room and she couldn’t help but cry herself, of course happily. She looked to James as their son was taken to be washed up but he was soon brought back to be placed in Lexia’s arms. The feeling of love was overwhelming. She didn’t even know how she could love someone this much.
[b “He’s perfect. James, look at our perfect son.”] She couldn’t take her eyes off him as the crying started to subside a little.
James obviously could never come close to understanding the pain that his wife was in, but he knew that Lexia wasn’t the type of girl to give up so easily. She had gone through the whole pregnancy – not letting anything keep her down or stop her from working. Hell she was still working toward the final weeks of her pregnancy. “C’mon babe,” he told her then, bending down despite the pain he was in. “You’ve been waiting months to see our little guy’s face.” He kissed her cheek, wet from tears and sweat.
He knew that this child meant everything to not only him, but Lexia as well. This was their miracle child. After losing their first child, they had did everything in their power to protect the child yet to be born. Honestly, finding out that Lexia was pregnant again was scary and exciting. James didn’t know if he could be the best father, but Lexia believed in him. She believed in his craft and helping to cultivate it. She helped him open his first restaurant and the second. She believed in him just like he believed in her and he knew that she wouldn’t give up. She wanted this baby just as much as him.
“Just two more pushes and we get to see him,” James said then to motivate her. They were so close. They would finally get to see just what name the baby deserved and when he could finally open his eyes, they would get to see whether they were like Lexia’s or James. It was suddenly becoming real for him then and James couldn’t help but become nervous – tears forming in his eyes. This was it, much the same as when they had become married – a moment that would change their lives forever. Their lives wouldn’t just revolve around the married couple any longer – this child was their future.
Lexia couldn’t help but worry about James and seeing him with broken bones and bruises wasn’t exactly nice, although she was relieved in some ways that it was nothing more serious, that he wasn’t bedridden or worse. Soon enough the contraction subsided and she was offered a moment of relief from it. James took her hand and she squeeze it before looking at the chair he had been in. [b “You shouldn’t be standing up, you are going to hurt yourself even more.”] However, it was clear that they were both glad he was here. There was no way that she could have done this without him. She was petrified and he was the only one who could help her navigate through her fear.
She looked up when the doctor came in. It seemed like it was almost time for her to push and she felt even more nervous about the prospect of delivering a child. She looked to James for comfort but flinched and closed her eyes when she felt the pressure he was referring to and quicker than she was ready for it, he was instructing her to push and with James’ hand firmly in grip, she started to push.
Lexia wasn’t sure how long she had been pushing but she knew that it felt like hours. After one long push she rested her head back on the pillow and tried to take a deep breath as the tears came.
[i “Come on Lexia, he’s almost here. Two to three more pushes as most.”] She was exhausted emotionally and physically then.
[b “I can’t...I can’t do this.”]
James rolled his eyes at Lexia then. He had a few sprained bones and she was about to push a human out of her. He surmised that her pain was of course worse than his own and he could tell it was getting harder for Lexia as she was clearly close to birth. Though he could see the relief on her face when he had entered, glad that he wouldn’t miss the birth of his son. The orderly had given James a cane and he came to a stand then, leaning down to kiss his wife’s forehead, already sticky with sweat. He smoothed her hair back before shushing me.
“I am fine Lexia,” he chuckled lightly then. “Don’t worry about me Lex.” Her sound of pain worried him and James just hoped that this relationship would go by fine, he didn’t want her at risk and certainly hoped there wouldn’t be any issues with this labor – thinking about the miscarriage and the blood pressure issues that Lexia had dealt with during her pregnancy. Honestly James could barely keep to a stand, and was in a bit off pain, but he bit through it – only focusing on Lexia. He gripped her hand then. “I told you I would be here for you,” he said with a smile – hoping to calm her and let her know that he would remain at her side.
The doctor had come in then, all the nurses prepping then and while James wanted to remain at her side, he wanted to also make sure he didn’t get in the way.
“Alright Lexia, you are going to feel a bit of pressure, I want you to just focus on breathing and pushing when asked alright.” James didn’t know really if he would pass out or could keep his word and stick strong for her. He was already freaking out as this was his first child. In hours, James would finally be a father.
They rushed Lexia into the delivery room when she got there, checking how dilated she was as well and getting her changed into something more suitable for delivering a baby. Everyone had tried to prepare Lexia for this but now that it was here she felt completely unprepared and it was way more painful than anything she had imagined. She hoped that the stress of finding out James had been in a car accident didn’t cause too many complications with the birth but she knew she wouldn’t be able to relax until someone gave her and update or until she saw her husband.
[b “Can someone please find out how he is?”] She asked as she was encouraged to take her place on the bed. Several contractions hit, all close together and she was barely able to breathe through them. Although her mother was here to encourage her it wasn’t the same. James was supposed to be here and she needed him right now and he had been in an accident.
Just as she would her way through a contraction the door opened and she expected the doctor or someone to return with news of James. Instead is was him and she had never felt so relieved in her life. [b James! Oh my God are you okay? I was so worried and I thought...I thought...”] She stopped then as another contraction came.
[i “They are close together now. As soon as the doctor comes in, I think he will ask her to push.”]
James was supposed to stay in bed, but he was too worried about Lexia and even more so when he realized she still hadn’t arrived and she also still hadn’t answered his calls. He had finally gotten to upset with waiting and against the wishes of the nurse and the direction of the doctor, he had gotten out of the hospital bed. He gripped the railing tight, barely managing to stand stable and finally remove the monitors. He hadn’t gotten a chance to remove the iv that kept him entirely bound before the nurse was back in the room.
“What did I say?” she said as she laid James down then. He only quickly sat up, refusing to sit down. He could see that there was something going on with the woman’s eyes where she wouldn’t meet his and he worried something was going on.
“James,” she started very calmly. “It’s about your wife.” James had stood then, crying in pain at the shattering feeling he got from the pressure of his broken ankle. The nurse managed to hold onto him then to assure he wouldn’t fall.
“What happened? What’s going on with her?”
“Don’t worry, I promise she is alright. She is going into labor.” James felt all kinds of emotions then; he was worried and excited – ecstatic and also scared.
“Labor?” He asked breathless. “I have to see her, I have to be there.” He said as he tried to fight against the nurse who could tell either the male would have to be strapped down or they would have to give him what he wanted. She also knew this was a major milestone for a man and couldn’t think of any way to stop him from ripping out every cord and limping to his wife.
“Relax, she is fine okay. Look you know you can’t walk there okay? I’ll get an orderly to get you a chair and take you okay?” Both him and Lexia being the hospital was kind of crazy to him and yet – James never thought he would be involved in a car crash. All he could hope was that he could see his son’s first breath of life, hear his cry and hold his wife’s hand through the process. He was impatient as they wheeled him to the elevator and headed toward the delivery floor, even more impatient when they had to help get into proper covering. The only thing that gave him peace was seeing the familiar red hair through the window. James knew he wasn’t looking too good, a bruising eye, a broken and ankle and wrist. He just wanted Lexia to focus on her.
He was wheeled into the room then, his mother in law at Lexia’s side as he was rolled toward her. “Babe,” he breathed out.
“Oh dear God James,” his mother in law said when she saw him. It looked like Lexia was close then, still contracting but the doctor was coming in soon.
“I’m fine,” he promised as he reached his hand out to take Lexia’s.
Lexia could barely think and it took ever bit of strength from her mother to stop her from getting in the car and driving back towards their restaurant to find him along the route. The worst part was not know where he was so when she called an ambulance she could really give a location but she was thankful that someone had accident and already called it in. They told her over the phone that they would take him to the hospital nearest to them and she was thankful for that. However it would be some time before he would even make it to the hospital. She spent over an hour distressed and crying before she felt a sharp pain in her stomach. Cramp. That’s what she had assumed so she ignored it and continued to do so every time it hit until there was a liquid spilling from her. It definitely wasn’t cramp.
[b “Mom!! Mom! I need you!”] She came rushing in and only needed to look at the floor to know what was going on. She remained calm, knowing Lexia would need that now considering everything that was going on.
[i “It’s okay. We are prepared for this.”] She said as she wrapped her arm around her and led her towards the door. [i “Just breathe baby. The hospital is only ten minutes away okay?”] Lexia nodded. It was hard to think of anything but her husband though. What if he was seriously injured or in a coma? What if he missed the birth of his son?
Her mother grabbed the bag that was waiting by the door and helped her into the car, driving her to the hospital quickly, announcing that she was having a baby when they arrived and also ensured to tell a nurse that her husband was a patient here and that she needed to get a message to him, which she agreed to do and got to it instantly.
James had eventually woke up, he recognized the name of the hospital on the band and was glad to know it was one close to their new home – which meant they had his information on file which included his emergency contact information. He tried to sit up, of course only dragged back down by the iv and monitoring systems connected to him.
“Ah ah, don’t you think about getting up,” a female voice said, James still trying to collect himself. His head was pounding, hell his whole body ached.
“What happened?” He asked the brunette nurse as she came over, reaching out to check his vials then and make sure he was okay.
“You were in a nasty crash – driver was texting and swerved lanes.” James fell back onto the bed, shaking his head then as he couldn’t believe he was in this position. “You surprisingly escaped with minor injuries: a sprained ankle and a sprained wrist but you are fine. No concussion, but you had a nasty hit against the steering wheel.” The nurse gave him a mirror then, he could see the bruise forming under his eye then. He didn’t look terrible but definitely was messed up and James knew this was the worse thing to happen to him so close to Lexia’s delivery and the opening of the restaurant.
He quickly sat up again then, “Lexia !” He called out, now worried about his wife more than his health or the pain he was in.
“Don’t worry, we called your wife and let her know you are here. You’ve been out for just a day, but if you leave with your wife then you should be okay. Your car unfortunately was totaled though.” He didn’t care about his car – he cared about Lexia. James needed to speak with her right away. He couldn’t believe this had happened to him and this would only make working harder. He was a chef – his hands and being on his feet was the most important and it looked like he would be out of commission for a while. How would he be able to make sure things would work fine with the opening and helping Lexia when she gave birth – he loved his mother in law but he couldn’t have her controlling him as well.
It was so nice to spend some time with her mother and it was even nicer for her to think that thought. Before she went into hospital she had been so over bearing and she could barely stand to be around her because she tried so hard to try and get her to break up with James but now she fully accepted him and it really helped them to build their relationship back up, to the point that James would call her off his own back to ask her to come and stay with Lexia. The woman spoiled her while she was there, well...spoiled the baby, buying a ridiculous amount of clothes and blankets and whatever else she picked up for her, claiming that she could never have enough of anything when it came to having a baby.
Regardless of the fact that James needed to stay at the old restaurant for a couple more days, she was coping. She distracted herself by setting up the nursery with her mother, building a wardrobe and crib, then filling it with all the items her mother had bought. By the final day, when James was supposed to be coming home the nursery was completely set up and ready for the baby who was due to arrive any day now.
When she saw James’ phone light up her phone she couldn’t help but smile and she answered it quickly. Hearing his voice made her feel a rush of love and she was about to tell him how much she needed him to come home before she could hear the screech of tyres. [b “James...”] She started to panic then. The line went dead and she started to shout his name then.
[i “Baby what is it?”]
[b “James...he...I think...I think he was in a crash.”]
