Her and her mom stayed at the hospital for the night. At 3:46 am, Cindy went to the coffee machine and bought a hazelnut latte. Soon after, her mom bought herself a cup of hazelnut latte, too. They stayed awake, although still dreadfully tired, and waited. Finally a doctor came out of the room. He stopped and asked them a question about his recent patient.
