visiting hours

Elizabeth when presented with the card and flowers again smiles shyly and writes her gratitude on her pad. With her free hand she will summon a nurse and gesturing to the card and flowers communicates to her to display them on her tray table.

Elizabeth continues to listen to her friends, talking to her and each other. If anyone has a question, she will write her answer on the pad.
While occasionally her eyes loose focus, or close completely, toward the end of the visiting hours, her eyes start to droop continuously and it is obvious she is loosing the battle between wakefulness and sleep.

As visiting hours conclude, a doctor and nurse team enter the room and start talking about the next series of surgeries that Elizabeth will have.
