     Donna had nearly fallen asleep in the grim silence of her room when her rehab nurse knocked, peeking inside to see if she was in her room. Reluctantly, she wheeled herself through the door, and as they entered the clinic's rehabilitation area, passed in front of the television just as the Olympic ski jumping competition began.
