The episode opens with, Shaun sat on the edge of the bed and held Steve tight in his arms. The soft glow of the TV lit up the room and gave him and the baby a warm glow. He smiled to himself as he looked over at Lea, who was fast asleep. Shaun told Lea in a whisper, “Steve has been fed, changed, and burped.” He knew she wouldn’t wake up. She whispered to herself as she slept and rolled over to get closer to the blankets.

Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann) and Park (Will Yun Lee) were in the same situation downstairs after finally getting Eden to sleep in the middle of them. They lay there in quiet, Morgan’s head on Park’s chest, and neither of them could speak.It’s been two months,” Morgan said softly to break the mood. “Since we…” “I know,” Park said, feeling bad about what he had said. “I miss that, too.”

Lim met him through Dr. Danni Powell, a character who only showed up for a short time on the show while she was disabled. Their relationship got stronger until Clay asked Lim to marry him. The engagement ring was on her kitchen table, but she wasn’t ready to say yes yet because she was still healing from being paralyzed.

Eileen Lim, Lim’s mother, said that Lim didn’t take care of herself. This led to a talk in which Eileen told Lim that she wished he liked her more. Glassman told them that his daughter had died, which helped them understand each other for a moment.

He also didn’t belong behind the wheel because he had Early Onset Alzheimer’s. His health quickly got worse, and Shaun had to rush him to the operating room.

In the meantime, Jordan had to deal with a patient who looked like they were overdoing. She knew right away that he was in trouble because he had sickle cell disease. As she worked to keep him stable, she couldn’t help but think about Nathan, the guy she had met that morning at church.

Nathan was in a lot of pain, and Jared was sure it wasn’t just because of the sickle cell. Even though Jordan didn’t want one, he ordered an MRI. The scan showed Nathan something he didn’t expect, something that could change his life forever.

The MRI showed that Nathan had brain tumors that were not cancerous but could be very dangerous to his life. Park suggested surgery to get rid of the lumps, even though it came with risks. Jordan was hesitant, though, because Nathan might lose all of his hearing after the surgery.
