         I jerked up to my mom screaming from down stairs  “ELLA WAKE UP AND GET DRESSED PLEASE”. My muscles relaxed but as quickly as they relaxed they tensed back up again as soon as I realized it was that Wednesday. Now you might wonder what was that bad about that Wednesday. It all started about a month ago …

wednesday
I had been having some problems with my stomach.at the time I was living in  Doha,Qatar so we went to doctors in both America and Doha.

The reason we were in America is that  over the summer we went and visited our cousins and they live in Virginia so we went to a few doctors there and they came up with no conclusion.

We went back to Doha and I went to my mom's doctor and I was sitting staring at the wall. When my mom gave me her phone and asked me to sit and wait in the room while she went out and talked to the doctor.

And of course I did not think much of it (I was 9).So I sat there and I waited.When she came back in she was nodding at the doctor that was when I had started realizing that something was going on.
We left the hospital and got in the car it felt so long even though it was only 30 minutes.But the silence messed with my brain and I started thinking about it…what is going on?I said to myself my mind escaped from my body and twisted into a world of (what ifs?) It felt like an hour but finally when I reached my mind's limit we arrived.

After sitting on the couch I FINALLY worked up the courage to go and ask her and she said…
“ Let’s not worry about it now Ella, the doctor will  explain”.
I was MAD, but I stayed calm.
The next week she took me back.I sat in the chair and awaited answers witch I had been craving all week. What he said I could not believe in a thousand years.He went on and on about the sort of surgery slowly witch made it even more painful it was way to early for me to deal with this but I sucked it in and how there would be laughing gas, a shot and a camera tube an how long it would take.I zoned out at that moment I felt mad and scared.On the way home I did not think about anything… I just cried
crying
I felt cold and hollow. For another two weeks I could not focus but then in what felt like a day the time came. It was the night before I crawled into bed and I laid in silence and stared at the ceiling I could not sleep by the time morning came I had not slept a minute. I fell out of bed but I did not care the dreaded day had come.
