Ridge: All right, guys. I think we should let mommy rest a little.

Thomas: Not yet.

Stephanie: Thomas, maybe we can stay a little longer tomorrow.

Taylor: You know what would make mommy feel real good? More kisses. More kisses. More kisses. More kisses. More kisses. I want to tell you something. God is taking care of all of us. He's in control of everything. Remember I told you that? I want you to listen to your daddy and listen to grandma and grandpa, okay? And take really good care of each other. Can you do that for me? And no matter what happens, my love is always with you. Always. I love you.


Mark: Nurse, can you take this down to the lab for me?

Nurse: Oh, yes, doctor, right away.

Mark: Thank you.

Bridget: Mark.

Mark: Bridget, hey.

Bridget: Hi.

Mark: How's your mother?

Bridget: Oh, she's good. Actually, I was wondering about my sister-in-law. Could you give me a little more information about her condition?

Mark: Sure.

Bridget: Something happened while I was inside there with her -- the ekg started moving around.

Mark: The fluctuation in Taylor's heart rate is called arrhythmia. It's a short in the system. The heartbeat's out of sync. That's what we're trying to control with the medication.

Bridget: Yeah, I've studied that. Does that mean you'd have to do another operation?

Mark: At this point that could be dangerous.

Bridget: Oh, god.

Mark: Bridget, look, I don't want to worry you, all right? Taylor's an incredibly resilient woman.

Bridget: Yeah, she is. If anybody can get through this, she can.

Mark: And so can you. Look, I guarantee you, we are doing everything we can. Now, listen, I have to see another patient. You hang in there, okay?

Bridget: Okay. Thank you.

Ridge: Hey, Bridget.

Bridget: Hi. Hey.

Ridge: Hey.

Bridget: Hey, did you guys have a good visit with your mom?

Children: Yeah!

Bridget: How's Taylor doing?

Ridge: Good. Looking better every time I see her. She should be back on her feet in no time.

P.A. Announcer: Paging Dr. Stateman. Dr. Stateman, please.

Stephanie: I have a token of my gratitude for being my daughter-in-law.

Taylor: Stephanie -- thank you. Oh, my -- oh, look at this. This is absolutely beautiful.

Stephanie: It's been in my family for three generations.

Taylor: Really?

Stephanie: Uh-huh. My grandmother gave it to my mother, and my mother gave it to me. And I want to give it to you. You're like a daughter to me -- Taylor? What's wrong, honey?

Taylor: I was just thinking about you.

Stephanie: And that made you cry?

Taylor: So many memories. I'm so lucky.

Stephanie: I think it's safe to say we're so lucky.

Taylor: You've always been so kind to me.

Stephanie: Really? I think it's very sweet of you to remember it that way.

Taylor: Do you remember this?

Stephanie: My grandmother's necklace.

Taylor: You gave it to me for Christmas.

Stephanie: I remember that very well.

Taylor: It's always meant so much to me. You mean so much to me. Whatever lies ahead for my family, I need you to help me. You've always taken such good care of us.

Stephanie: I always will, honey.

Taylor: You do something for me?

Stephanie: Of course.

Taylor: Take this.

Stephanie: All right.

Taylor: I'm giving it back to you. I want you to keep it.

Stephanie: I gave it to you to keep. I always hoped that when you had children, if you had a daughter -- and you got lucky, you've got two -- I want you to give it to either Steffy or Phoebe, whoever.

Taylor: Will you do it for me?

Stephanie: Me? Why can't you -- Taylor, what are you telling me?


Ridge: Taylor looks great, doesn't she guys?

Children: Uh-huh, yeah.

Ridge: She's getting her color back and everything.

Bridget: Yeah, she seemed to be in a pretty good mood.

Ridge: Yeah, she was excited about seeing the kids.

Bridget: I'll bet.

Thomas: She even let us sit up on her bed.

Bridget: Really?

Steffy: But we didn't give her germs.

Bridget: Oh, of course you didn't. Little kids don't have germs. They have cooties! Cooties -- it's more serious.

Brooke: What is going on here? I could hear you guys all the way down the hall.

Ridge: Shh, we're making to much noise.

Brooke: Well, I guess, I don't have to ask how Taylor's doing, huh?

Ridge: She's having a good day, yeah.

Brooke: Apparently so are you.

Ridge: Yeah, we are. Look I was gonna take the kids home and then come back.

Bridget: Oh, Ridge, if you want to stay, I can take the kids home.

Ridge: Would you?

Bridget: Yeah, I don't have any other plans for tonight. And I know this place that has the best hot chocolate.

Thomas: Can we, Dad?

Ridge: All right. Just call Catherine and tell her what time you'll be home, okay?

Bridget: Sure. Okay, everybody hold hands, let's march out to the parking garage.

Thomas: I don't want to hold hands.

Bridget: And I don't want to explain to your father how I misplaced his family on the way to the parking garage. Thank you. All right, let's go. Let's go. Come on, let's go. This way, this way.

Brooke: She is so good with them.

Ridge: Yeah. I think it is good for them to be around family now.


Bridget: Three hot chocolates, coming up. Careful you guys, they are hot. Oh, you want the pink one? Okay. No, oh, orange and you get the blue you're a boy.

Thomas: Thanks.

Bridget: I'll be right back. Hey, Ceej, do you have any scrap paper? The girls want to draw.

C.J.: Uh, yeah, actually why don't you use these old flyers.

Bridget: Thank you.

C.J.: And I got some highlighters and stuff in here, if that's cool?

Bridget: Oh, yeah, thanks.

C.J.: No problem. They seem like pretty cool kids.

Bridget: Yeah, they're amazing.

C.J.: I guess they should be with a mom like Taylor. How is she? Is she doing all right?

Bridget: Well, they repaired the valve, but she's still arrhythmic.

C.J.: Already starting to sound like a doctor.

Bridget: Yeah, Mark told me not to worry about it, but I know he's concerned.

C.J.: Mark?

Bridget: Dr. Maclaine. My mentor.

C.J.: Uh, yeah, I know, Bridget, I met him. So what, he's taking care of Taylor now?

Bridget: Yeah, he assisted dr. Cooper with the surgery.

C.J.: So is that a coincidence? Or did he request her like he requested you?

Bridget: C.J., He is probably one of the most respected doctors in the hospital, maybe in the whole state. So, if you're really worried about Taylor and her family, you'd be happy he's on her case. I know I am.


Brooke: So how is Taylor doing, really?

Ridge: She's pretty relaxed.

Brooke: I guess you know, she's going to get through this.

Ridge: She told Bridget that she wasn't scared at all.

Brooke: She is so brave.

Ridge: Were you scared? When all that happened?

Brooke: Yeah. I'm sorry, Ridge, I didn't even know that Sheila there. And if I didn't go over there for a baby bottle --

Ridge: No, Brooke, it's all right. Look, I'm the one that's sorry. I shouldn't have asked that. I just -- I just can't stop thinking about what could have happened. What Sheila almost did.

Brooke: I'll tell you whatever you want to know.

Ridge: No, I'm not gonna make you relive that. I don't want to put you through that.

Brooke: Ridge, Taylor just needs some time to recuperate, but she is going to recover. She's going to get through this and she'll be stronger than ever.


Taylor: Stephanie --

Stephanie: Taylor, you're gonna pull through this.

Taylor: We've always been honest with each other. My situation isn't good. I'm not afraid, but I am worried about my family. I don't know how this is going to affect them. Something's wrong. I can feel it.

Stephanie: Is it the arrhythmia?

Taylor: Yes.

Stephanie: Honey, the medication is gonna control that.

Taylor: It isn't working. I'm not trying to scare you, but I want you to know. I need someone to be prepared.

Stephanie: Taylor, don't talk this way. You're gonna be fine. You're gonna be fine.


 Ridge: Taylor's improving. She's a little tired, a little uncomfortable, but you'd never guess what she'd been through.

Brooke: She's a trooper.

Ridge: I don't know if it's the oxygen or the medication, but she's got this glow about her.

Brooke: She looks healthy?

Ridge: She looks happy. Peaceful. She had the same look when she was giving birth to the twins.

Ridge: I was scared stiff, but she wasn't scared at all. She was so confident. She knew she was gonna get better.

Brooke: I guess she would know better than anybody.

Ridge: It's not just her medical training, though. It's something deeper. Something -- it's her faith. You should have seen her with the kids. She asked them to say their prayers, and to make sure that they were thankful.

Brooke: Thankful?

Ridge: Yeah, for everything that we have. She didn't want them to pray for her to get better. She didn't want them to ask god for anything. She just wanted them to say thank you.

Brooke: Well, she is an incredible woman. She could be angry because of what happened to her, but she's not.

Ridge: No, she's totally focused on the positive. On the kids. On her recovery.

Brooke: You know, she brought the family back together.

Ridge: Yeah, well, this family always pulls together in a crisis, doesn't it?

Brooke: Kind of puts things in perspective, don't you think?

Ridge: Yeah. When I think of what I could have lost --

Brooke: Ridge, you haven't lost anything. And you're not going to lose anything. Taylor is tough. I should know. Spending all those years butting heads with her. But she always knew what she had in you. And nothing and no one was going to make her let go. And that's what you have to do. You have to hold on. Hold on and you will get through this.


Stephanie: You're just tired. You need to rest.

Taylor: Listen to me. I want to get better. I want to go home to my family, but there are complications.

Stephanie: What kind of complications?

Taylor: There is so much damage to my heart. The operation couldn't correct all of it. And the medication they're giving me isn't working.

Stephanie: Honey, you got to give it time to work.

Taylor: I don't know how much time I've got. It's okay. It's okay. I'm not scared. I'm not. Whatever god has in mind for me, I'm okay. I'm prepared. I just want to make sure you are.

Stephanie: I'm not. I'm not.

Taylor: You've always been like a mother to me. I love you. I want you to know that I love you.

Stephanie: Honey, I love you more than anything in this world, like my own baby. Oh, please, Taylor. Please, honey. Taylor, there's so much they can do medically. Don't give up, please. You've got to fight. You have to fight for Ridge, and for the children. Please, that's exactly what'll keep you going. Okay? What's happening? What's the matter?

[ Heart monitor beeping ]

Taylor: Get Ridge.

Stephanie: What?

Taylor: Please, go get Ridge -- now. Now.
