Who am I?

The first thing I can remember is the sound of the machines.

(Beep. Beep.)

Then, a rustle and whisper.

“Carrie, page Dr. Allen. I think she’s waking up.”

The door closed softly.

(Click.)

I opened my eyes, slowly against the glaring lights.

Who am I…?

The door opened and my heart monitor skipped a beep.

    I especially enjoyed this piece. Is it birth or is it death?
