Medical NotesEdit

MichelleEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Huntington's
  • Treatment:
    • Genetic testing

Michelle's mother had died of Huntington's, but she decided not to get the test because she didn't want to know if she had it or not. Amelia encouraged her to get tested because she was already living her life as if she did have it. She agreed to have the test and Pete suggested that she have Michelle talk to Sheldon or Violet because she might learn that she was going to die. Amelia said it wasn't necessary, but while she was drawing the blood, Michelle confessed to Amelia that she was planning to kill herself if the test came back positive. The test came back positive, but Amelia lied to her and said it was negative, not wanting Michelle to kill herself. After speaking with Pete, who scolded her for lying, Amelia told Michelle the truth. She then encouraged Michelle to keep living as long as the good days outnumber the bad. She agreed to euthanize Michelle when the time came.

IsabelleEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Pregnancy
  • Treatment:
    • C-section delivery

Isabelle was pregnant. Her baby had been diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome in utero. The baby was going to die within a few days of birth, but Isabelle asked Addison to treat the baby's ovaries with hormones to mature the eggs and extract them so she could use them to get pregnant again. After speaking to Isabelle and her husband Frank, Addison agreed to do the surgery, but not until after the baby was born. When Isabelle went into labor, the baby went into distress and Addison had to do a c-section. After she was born, Addison asked what they wanted to name her, but they just asked how soon she could do the surgery. After she forced them to meet her, they ended up just holding her until she died.
