Kit is looking at the total cost for Eucalyptus’ care and it is over $430k. She calls Ian into her office and she tells him that he tested positive, he says yes, he took something for his back, and he should have said something before the test. She says ok, but she cannot have him operate with a positive test result, she can only let him back when he is negative.
Cade nudges Padma to wake her up. She turns to Leela who tells her that the babies are fine. She will have a long recovery, but she is going to be ok.
