- A brain tumor.
- It's a GBM.
The speech arrest you were experiencing was probably the result of a focal seizure.
You'd lose all ability to comprehend, interact with the world around you.
I had a biopsy While the tumor's adjacent to Broca's it hasn't invaded it yet.
We'll do an awake craniotomy.
You'll be conscious and talking while I map out Broca's and resect the tumor.
E.
R.
7x10 "PIECE OF MIND" Don't you pull out, you dumb-ass! - I asked you a question.
- I just don't wanna play anymore.
Think I've liked waking up at 5:30 a.
m.
for 10 years to drive you to a cold arena? My toes are frozen, my ass is numb.
That damn coffee machine gives me heartburn all freaking day.
Wake up, Dad.
I'm not gonna make the NHL.
Not with that attitude.
You wanna end up working in a factory like me and your Uncle Don? - No.
- Well, you're damn right you don't.
Want a good job, go to college.
To go to college, you'll need a scholarship.
You're a bright kid, but you won't get a scholarship with those grades.
Well, maybe my grades would be better if I wasn't playing hockey all the time.
Dad! It's okay, keep it.
- Nice tip.
- It's New Year's Eve.
- He's got a long day ahead of him.
- Sounds okay to me.
Drive around Manhattan, listen to the radio talk to people, no brain surgery.

- It's weird.
You know, I've sent a couple thousand people to the O.
R.
- And? - And I've never been myself.
- You're a virgin.
- I still have my appendix, my tonsils.
The only general anesthetic I've ever gotten was in a dentist's chair.
- It's no different, really.
- Oh, sure.
Pull a tooth, have my skull sawed open, it's pretty much the same thing.
- I mean the anesthesia.
- Except for the part where they wake me.
At that point, you'll know things are going well.
Yeah, right.
Are you ready? Let's do it.
Come on, we gotta get them out of there! - Cut the battery.

My wife just bought those pants.
Have you ever been in this hospital before? No, I haven't been in a hospital since my son was born.
- Give me 20 cc's of 1 % lido with bicarb.
- That's cold! Who's your family doctor? Klizowski at the Morgan Family Clinic.
What are you doing? Putting a tube in your chest to reinflate your lung.
- I got a collapsed lung? - It happens with your type of injury.
- But you'll breathe easier once it's in.
- Thora-Seal's ready.
- Is there anyone we can notify? - My wife, Debra.
-28 French.
- Do you have the number? I can't remember.
I got it on speed dial.
She teaches at Our Lady of Perpetual Hope.
- Let's culture the bone.

- Dad? - Yeah.
- They stuck a freaking tube in my chest.

Hook me up to low suction.
I'm okay, though.
Hey, you know, your mom's gonna be really pissed off about her truck.
I'll tell her you were driving, okay? Hey, Cleo.
Need some Xeroform over here.
Paul? Don't be scared, Paul.
- I'm not.
- Be strong, now! Be strong.
- He's gonna be okay, right? - Looks like a tough kid.
Yeah.
Yes, he is.
Are you finished? Yeah.
I just need you to sign this.
- It's a power of attorney.
- Something goes wrong- Something goes wrong, what? No heroic measures.
No ventilators, no feeding tubes if there's no hope of meaningful recovery.
- You're going to be fine, Mark.
- Elizabeth, you're a surgeon.
- You know that- - That you're going to be fine.
- You don't want the responsibility? - It's unnecessary.
I don't want to end up like that.
Now you're being dramatic.
So if I end up in a persistent vegetative state- Fine.
Fine.
Give it to me.
- What's in the Thora-Seal? - Minimal blood loss.
Oh, good.
No hemothorax.
Mr.
Harris? I need you to sign this consent for treatment for your son.
- Where is he? - Radiology.
What's he doing there? We had to get x-rays of his leg.
He'll probably need surgery.
- Can't you just put a cast on it? - The bone penetrated the skin.
But there's no joints involved, and it's midshaft, so it'll probably heal nicely.
Mr.
Harris, I gotta take you for a head CT.
- What's that? - Head CT? CAT scan.
It's pretty standard after you hit your head and lose consciousness.
- Did you tell her yet? - Who? - Weaver.
- Oh, no, not yet.
But it's part of my New Year's resolution.
No, really.
It is.
You okay? - Am I bleeding? - No.
I'm fine.
- Did you call the furnace guy? - Yep.
Last week.
Is he coming over? You don't want the pipes to freeze.
Larry let him in.
- Who's Larry? - Larry Corbin, the neighbor.
- In the blue house? - No, in the brown, actually.
I'm sorry.
No, no.
It's my fault.
Oh, damn.
You're gonna have to put on scrubs anyway.
- Scrubs? - You were planning on coming in? - Don't you think Burke might object? - You're probably right.
It's gonna be pretty crowded in there.
Mark, do you want me to come in? No, I'll be fine.
You go get cleaned up.
I can finish this.
- I'll be right back.
- Okay.
I've never been so claustrophobic before.
- Happens to many people.
- Is everything all right? Looks good, but a radiologist has to review the films.
- Can I sit up? - Sure.
Let me know if you get lightheaded.
We contacted the school.
They're trying to reach Debra.
God, I hope she doesn't get in a car accident rushing over here.
Hey, can we see Paul before his operation? That depends on when the orthopedic surgeon can schedule the surgery.
- It's just his leg, right? - No, he had a head trauma.
- Trauma? What do you mean trauma? - He hit his head just like you did.
He's stable now, but we observe head injuries carefully.
- You mean he could be unstable? - I'm sure he'll be fine.
Oh, God, she's gonna think it's my fault again.
What? Our first son died of SIDS.
He'd be about 20 now.
I'm sorry.
Yeah, he was 3 weeks old.
I sent my wife out, you know, to get some rest you know, for herself for a couple hours.
The baby had been up all night, finally fell asleep.
I must have dozed off myself.
Because I didn't wake until I heard her scream.
She had come home to find Nathan had died in his crib.
I mean, we didn't have baby monitors and stuff like you do nowadays.
I mean, she didn't blame me.
But I know I know that she thought if she'd stayed home that night he'd still be alive.
There's no way you could have known.
Stick out your tongue.
Show me your teeth.
Repeat after me: Ready to rock 'n' roll.
- "Ready to rock 'n' roll.
" - And that we are.
So you know the procedure, you've had your meds.
- Anything on your mind? - That's why I'm here.
You won't see me in there, but I'll be talking to you.
- Good luck.
- We don't need it, but thank you, Mark.
So, what are you here for? I'm Leo.
I'm Mark.
What are you here for? I've got something growing on my heart.
I'm not sure how to say it.
- Myxoma? - No, but it sounds like that.
- Teratoma? - How did you know? - I'm a doctor.
- Yeah, right.
Doctors get sick too, you know.
- I got something growing on my brain.
- What do they do for that? Same as you.
Operate, take it out.
Does it hurt? They told me it wouldn't hurt.
You'll be asleep the whole time.
And when you wake up, if you're sore, they'll give you medicine.
- This sucks.
- It'll be over before you know it.
It still sucks.
Yeah.
Yeah.
Is Trauma 1 still open? Not for long.
Blast injury to face coming in.
A guy testing Roman candles.
I have to park you until I find you a room.
I'll be back.
Thanks.
No, I've been waiting three hours.
- Happy New Year.
- Okay, Gordy.
Back to bed.
Hey, Randi.
Randi, get Blue Beacon on the phone.
They cannot deny authorization for a retinal-artery occlusion.
- Excuse me? - I got a page for a surgical consult.
A guy in Curtain 2 has a beeper up his rectum.
- What? - Has it on vibrate.
- Can't figure out how he slipped it in.
- Ma'am? Never underestimate the elasticity of the anal sphincter.
Excuse me, excuse me.
You're the doctor who's taking care of my son, Paul Harris.
- The car accident? - Yes.
Is he? Is he all right? They've arranged to send him up to the O.
R.
- We need you now.
Sats are dropping.
- To what? - Seventy-four.
- He was getting sleepy.
- But now we can't wake him.

- Cricoid pressure.

Bag him.
- Paul! Do you hear me? Be strong, Paul! Don't quit! - Hey, Mr.
Harris.
Feeling any better? - No.
- You got a collapsed lung.
- Blood bank's low.
Weaver wants everybody to donate before their shift's over.
- I always do.
- That's very generous of you.
That, and I get drunk for half as much when I'm down a pint.
Take it easy.
Good news.
Mr.
Harris, your CT looks normal.
I know, but this tube you stuck in my chest is killing me.
Abby, give Mr.
Harris here another 5 of morphine.
We're gonna admit you and monitor you for a day or two.
- And then we'll take that tube out.
- Okay.
Listen, did you find out anything at all? His oxygen level was low for a while.
We're not sure why.
- Is that your son? - Yes.
- What are his sats? -100% after intubation.
GCS is 10.
- What's that mean? - It could be a bruise to the brain.
We won't know for sure until after the scan.
- When is that? - Any minute now.
Mr.
Harris? - Yes? - I'm Officer Darcy.
How you doing? Well, I've been better.
I have to write an accident report.
Can you tell me what happened? Well, I You know, I honestly don't remember.
One minute, I'm driving the car with my son.
And then the next minute, the paramedics are just dragging me out.
- That guy came out of nowhere.
- You failed to stop for the red light.
I would never do that.
- No, it wasn't my fault.
- Several witnesses say it was.
I guess it's too late to change my mind now.
- Would you? - No.
They took that kid in for a teratoma resection while you were gone.
He was pretty freaked out.
I'm sure they'll be here soon.
Okay, time to go.
- Okay, you need help? - Nope, I've got it.
- You gonna go see a movie? - I'll be right outside.
Hey, your hands are like ice.
Do you want a blanket? Mark? Mark, are you okay? - If I don't make it through- - Don't talk like that.
If I don't make it, I left you the life insurance.
It'll pay for the house, for you and the baby.
I'm sorry, Mark.
I can't go through here.
- I love you, Elizabeth.
- I love you too.
You're going to be okay, and I'll see you very, very soon.
Okay, Mr.
Greene, I'm gonna lower your head now.
- Jesús, this is my last guy.
You done? - No, man.
I gotta pull a double.
Happy-freaking-New Year, huh? Tell me about it.
- All this for me? - Yep.
Slide on over to the table for us.
Okay, Mark.
I'm Dr.
Hammond, your anesthesiologist.
You'll be looking at me and talking to me throughout the surgery.
Okay? Okay.
For the burr hole, I'll need a Midas Rex with an M-8 bit.
Then I'll switch to a V-1 for the bone flap.
Excuse me, Dr.
Burke? You said you'd give me a little something to take the edge off.
Excuse me, Dr.
Burke? - So, what? It's a coma? - It's not what you think of as a coma.
He's having what we call "purposeful movements.
" And the CAT scan shows there's no sign of hemorrhage or skull fractures.
You know, he's unconscious, but if you'd like to talk to him I'm pretty sure he'll be able to hear you.
Hey, son.
It's time to wake up now.
You ready to go home? Well, you gotta open your eyes.
Every day, I used to do this to get him up for school.
Sometimes he'd fake it until I tickled him.
Son be strong now.

Burke maps the brain.

- May I? - Sure.

We'll take him up to the O.
R.

He looks so big just lying here, doesn't he? Remember I used to hold him in my hand and rock him to sleep? Yeah.
You used to think I was gonna drop him.
Remember that? Paul.
Debra, I ran a red.
We were arguing about him quitting hockey, and the music was really loud.
I don't know.
I must have missed the light change.
Honey, it was an accident.
Debra, I'm sorry.
Mr.
Harris, you all right? I think this tube is getting my chest again.
- We should get you back to bed.

I don't Good.
Elizabeth.
- He's seizing.
- Oh, my God.
Cool saline, please.
Sats are 92.
- What's happening? - Electronic stimulation-induced seizure.
Dousing the brain with saline should cool it down.

- Give him Ativan.
We can't sedate him, we won't be able to talk to him.

- Mark, come on home.
Mark, we need you to talk to us.
Mark.
That's a good gag with the scope.
He might be lightening up.
Mark? Come on, Mark.
Come on, buddy.
Try and wake up.
Mark! No response to painful stimuli.
His eyes are open, but he's out of it.
- How long since the seizure? - Half an hour.
Still no significant change in GCS.
Maybe we should close up and come back in a few days.
In a few days? You've just opened his skull.
Hey, what? What's going on out there? You had a seizure during mapping, Mark.
We had to wait.

We could find out if you like.
Let's Let's wait, see.
Then we have to argue about boy and girl names.

- But nobody's told me how he's doing.
- Dr.
Kovac can find out for you.
Good luck, Mr.
Harris.
Happy New Year.
Were you having chest pain before your collision? No, I don't remember anything.
- Did you pass out? - What do you mean? With angina, you can get an irregular heartbeat.
- And that can cause you to pass out? - Yeah.
Because your heart doesn't pump enough blood to your brain.
- Could that have caused my accident? - It happens a lot.
- So it wasn't my fault? - What? - The accident.
- Probably not.
- I gotta talk to my wife.
- Does your chest hurt? - Like a son of a bitch.

- I need to talk to my wife.
- I'll explain what happened.
Just relax.

He needs your support the most when he wants it the least.
- You a dad? - No.
- Mrs.
Harris would like to come in.
- For a minute.
You look like a nurse.
- Paul's awake.
- Is he okay? Yeah.
They took the tube out, and he's breathing on his own, and - Well, he's asking for a cheeseburger.
- Oh, God.
Thank you.
Hey, honey.
What happened? You okay? I got a blocked artery on my heart.
I guess those sliders finally caught up with me.
The docs figure that the blockage made me pass out this morning.
That's what caused the accident.
Oh, God.
I'm really sorry about downstairs.

- You'll make it.
- You gotta tell my son something.
- You can tell him after the operation.
- Not if we don't get in there soon.
Please tell him that I love him.
And that I'm very proud of him - more than he'll - Let's tube him.
Okay, let's go.
The clock's ticking, his heart isn't.
Okay, Mark.
Follow my finger with your eyes.
- Mark, follow his finger.
- Mrs.
Street? - Why don't we go to the Waiting Room? - Sorry.
- They'll call you with updates.
- Okay.
What were the three things I asked you to remember? The three items.
Remember? Giraffe, beach ball, 123 Main Street.
Three for three.
- Do you know what happened to him? - Who? The heart kid.
They got him to the O.
R.
It's touch-and-go.
I'm gonna have somebody from Psychiatry talk to you.
- No, thanks.
- I recommend it to all my patients.
Depression suppresses the immune system.
It can hinder recovery.
I don't need a therapist.
I could get this Foley out.
- If you have urinary retention- - A nurse can throw another one in.
Mark.
The sooner I get it out, the sooner I can walk.
The sooner I can walk, the sooner I get out of here.
- No offense.
- Okay, I'll take out the Foley.
- Bathroom privileges? - Only if somebody walks you.
You're a lucky guy, Mark.
There has never been a more successful treatment for your tumor.
If you believe that and mobilize your inner resources you're gonna survive.
Time of death 2048.
He didn't make it.
No.
But I did.
Yeah.
You fixed my heart.
Yep.
I didn't even know I had a heart problem.
That car accident saved my life.
You never heard of a yearly checkup? - Hey, son.
- You okay? Yeah.
I feel like I got hit by a truck.
Again.
Did you sleep well? Yeah, except when you were yapping in my ear, asking me to wake up.
- I notice you didn't listen.
- I was in a coma.
You know, you always got an excuse.
Hey, son.
I guess this means you're not gonna play hockey anymore this year, huh? They said the cast will be off in six to eight weeks.
Your leg's broken.
It's weak.
Let it heal.
Well, I'll be doing physiotherapy.
- Maybe we can start running together.
- Trying to give me another heart attack? You gave me a scare, Dad.
You too.
We're under a minute, Dick, and Times Square is raring to go.
- Some rocking New Year's Eve, huh? - It'll do.
When are they gonna come take this damn Foley out? It's been over three hours since he put in the order.
I think she's busy with another patient.
I can't wait any longer.
I gotta pee.
Then go.
- Mark.
- Come on.
You know how to do it.
I can't believe I'm doing this.
I don't think I could order those for a patient ever again.
Are you sure you're up to this? Nature calls.
- Easy.
- I got it.
You're not supposed to do this on your own, you know.
Once I get in there, can I stand on my own? No.
You can sit.
- Okay, let me try.
- All right.
See? It's not a race.
You just be careful.
Okay.
Small steps.
I know.
Small steps.
That's it.
See, you're doing it.
