But not that everything would be OK, because it wouldn’t be and Alexis has always been truthful with her daughters.
At the hospital, Alexis arrives with Sam & Kristina in tow for her doctor’s consult before she has surgery. Kristina is a little scared because she doesn’t understand what is going on and has only had bad experiences with the hospital.

Sonny gives Robin the letter that April wrote and explains that it was in her personal affects and that it looks like she was writing it when she died. The letter thanks Robin and Patrick for being there for her. April says in the letter she felt very alone when she first came to the hospital and that Patrick and Robin made her feel better.

April writes to Robin to fight the disease she has that will show people they can live with it.
Alexis has her consult with Patrick and tells him that she isn’t scared of the operation but she is afraid of the cancer she has. Alexis compliments Patrick on his ability as a doctor but she wants him to put it out straight for her. She wants to know if there is a chance she will die. At first, Patrick tries to sugar coat the whole thing, but Alexis forces him to tell the truth. She tells him that she has to think about her small daughters and make plans for them, just in case. Patrick admits that it wouldn’t be wrong to make the plans that a lot of people who have this do indeed die.
Sam and Kristina are down on the docks when Sam tells Kristina about Jason’s boat and guess who shows up….Jason himself. Kristina runs up to him and asks to take them on the boat. Sam calls Alexis at the hospital to ask if it would be OK. Alexis gets on the phone with Jason and asks him to assure her that there won’t be any problems (like hit men or bombs waiting). He gives Alexis his assurance and they decide to go out on the boat. Jason lets Sam drive the boat and is generally very kind to her. After the ride, Kristina wants ice-cream and while she is getting it Jason and Sam talk. She tells Jason how worried she is that she won’t be able to be there for Alexis and Kristina but Jason gives her a pep talk and tells her that he knows Sam can do this. That he has seen her keep going even though she is afraid before.
Sonny is still at the hospital talking with Robin. She is telling him about how after Stone died she had a particular bad day and was walking when she came up on a church and decided to go in. She felt at peace and really felt like Stone was there with her. She says that when she has a bad day now, she just remembers going to the church and that makes her realize that life has a lot to offer, and she needs to keep going. Sonny tells her that when she feels that way, she should remember also how much Stone loved her.
Later in the day, Alexis goes to see Sonny and asks him to please try and keep Jason away from Sam. That it does Sam no good to have Jason around. Alexis pleads with Sonny, and tries to explain that she just wants to keep Sam safe. That Kristina and Molly need Sam right now and that if Alexis dies they are going to need Sam even more and that if she is with Jason there is a good chance she might be killed and that worries Alexis. Sonny tells her that he doesn’t think him talking to Jason would be a good idea and that after everything that has happened; it wouldn’t be fair to either Jason or Sam.
Nicholas and Lucky go to the hospital so Lucky can go to a meeting. They see Liz and both Liz and Nicholas assure Lucky that they only have his best interests at heart. They just want to see him be well. Maxie is lurking around the corner where no one can see her. When Lucky makes like he is going to the meeting he actually meets up with Maxie and asks her is she scored. She says “just like you wanted” and holds up a bag of pills.
