Before they knew it, the police were already there, ready to take Rick into questioning. Rick was troubled and confused and couldn’t believe this could get any worse. Rick was put in the interrogation room, not having a clue where this would lead him to.
At first, the questions asked seemed very general. He was asked where they live, what do they do for a living, and so on. Later, the questions became more and more detailed, asking who was their regular doctor and how long they have been seeing him. Rick began feeling uncomfortable, still shocked by what fate had in line for him.
The Pain Was Getting Worse
As the days went by, the back pain Jolene suffered from was getting more unbearable. It got to a point that she couldn't handle it anymore, and asked Rick to take her to the emergency unit. Instead of driving to the nearby hospital, Rick called 911 and asked for an ambulance.
The ambulance paved its way through the heavy traffic, and Jolene and Rick had nothing to do but pray. They prayed for the health of their baby, they prayed for their own health, and most of all, they prayed for this episode to be over. But there was more to come.
The Truth Comes Out
One of the doctors on duty that day attached Jolene to the ultrasound machine for an examination. At first, it felt like any other test she had been through with her regular doctor, however, within moments, the doctor's facial expression changed. The doctor finished examining Jolene, and then he looked at her with worried eyes. He turned to Rick and said very calmly that he was sorry, but he has no choice but to call the police.
Within seconds, Jolene's world turned upside down. One moment she was pregnant, having her unborn baby tested, and a minute later, her husband was brought down to a police station for investigation. What could have happened? What was going on, and why were the police involved in what seemed to be a medical situation and nothing criminal? Jolene was terrified as she had no clue what next was awaiting her. They had reached rock bottom.
The Questioning Began
The police proceeded with asking about Jolene. How she was feeling, how far in her pregnancy was she, and if she was experiencing anything abnormal. All these questions made Rick feel very uncomfortable. After a while, Rick lost his temper. It was a long day and no one was giving him accurate answers as to what was going on. He snapped at the policeman who investigated him, something he would later regret.
Rick was uptight as he was afraid to miss the birth of his child, he was apprehensive as he didn't know what was going on with Jolen, and most of all, no one at the police station was able to give him any answers. He had no idea how long he was about to stay at the police station, however, the policeman did assure him that soon enough, everything will clear up, and they will be able to explain exactly what was going on.
Surgery Was Needed
While Rick was going through torture at the police station, Jolene was having her share of hell too. Each was going through the hardest hours of their lives and instead of being together, they were each on their own. Could you imagine being in a hospital (or in a police station) and your partner not being beside you?
The doctor who earlier examined her returned and said that surgery was needed. Jolene couldn't believe what she was hearing. She was afraid, she was confused, however, the only thing that gave her hope and kept her on her feet was knowing that sooner or later, this will all be over. She couldn't handle this situation anymore.
