Dr. Gardner comes to see Viki and says he knows shes going forward with the transplant. In the meantime, they could implant a left ventricular assist device. It will serve as a bridge until they get the transplant, and he thinks its the best course of action. It will last weeks or perhaps months, and will be the best way to prolong her stability while they wait. The doctor leaves and Kevin tells his mother that there is still so much for her to do in life, and she has to do everything she can to stay alive.

She is a survivor and shell survive this.
Todd brings a cart to Kellys room and they cover Pauls body with blankets and dump him in the cart. A chain falls onto the floor unnoticed as they move the body.

The woman across the hall tells him Kelly left and that she was with a man and they were pushing something.
