Jenny’s Choice #1
Last week’s Chicago Med was a rough one for several of the characters. Natalie had to face the morbidity & mortality conference after her patient died in the previous episode. She didn’t do anything wrong, really. The hospital’s rules and procedures need updating to prevent what happened then to happen again. But she and med student Jeff Clarke were already on the rocks after he admitted that her husband (Jeff Manning) knew of Jeff Clarke’s feelings for Natalie and he (husband Jeff) wouldn’t want Jeff C. to date her. But when Jeff C. interrupted the conference in defense of Natalie, he embarrassed her in front of all her colleagues and superiors, and at the end of the episode, she broke up with him, claiming that she felt like she’d used him, like she was using him to feel a connection to her husband and to fill the hole in her life/heart.
Speaking of hearts… The police officer who’d previously arrested Maggie was brought in after her SUV accidentally backed over her. Unfortunately, she was pronounced brain-dead. She was a registered organ donor, so the hospital was able to get her husband (a police officer himself) to agree to donate her organs. One of those was her heart, which was supposed to go to the mother of the teenage girl, the one who Dr. Charles agreed could be put on the transplant list, even though she was an alcoholic. She’d been clean and sober for years. Unfortunately, someone she knew was killed, so she’d fallen off the wagon that morning, and she and her daughter were in a car wreck on the way to the hospital. (Luckily she’d asked her daughter to drive her, so it wasn’t a DUI.) That was both a blessing and a curse. It was a blessing because it allowed them to find out a major problem with the daughter, so she had to have surgery, and then she’d be okay. But the mom nearly didn’t get the heart because of it. In fact, the committee voted to not give it to her. Fortunately for her and her daughter, another heart recipient couldn’t be found in an area close enough to use it, so she got it anyway.
On a good note, April had another sonogram, and the baby’s measurements were in the normal range, so according to Will (Dr. Halstead), April’s TB meds weren’t causing any issues. So see? Crazy, emotional episode, but it had both good and bad news for the characters!
On tonight’s episode, “Graveyard Shift,” it’s a long night on the graveyard shift at Chicago Med, especially for Dr. Reese, who must deal with pronouncing patients dead on more than one occasion. April gets called in to work, much to the dismay of Tate, who pressures her to slow down. Meanwhile, Dr. Charles passes along some vital news to Dr. Latham, and Goodwin asks Dr. Rhodes to work on a most unusual patient.
