Jason yells at her and tells her that the surgery is best and he doesnít want Sam to die. Alexis tells him she doesnít want that either. She tells him that all they have are opinions and nothing definite, which is why she feels that they should go with the medication and if that doesnít work, then they can do the surgery.
