After her open-ended escape to Costa Rica, Violet has finally returned home and to the practice.

Meanwhile, Amelia butts into Sam's personal life, pointing out that he can mend hearts in the OR but can't seem to do that for himself; and Sheldon encourages Charlotte to reconcile with Cooper, while Cooper deals with a young patient who eats everything in sight.

Medical NotesEdit

OliverEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Pica
  • Treatment:
    • Fiber
    • Talk therapy
    • Vitamins
    • Charcol

Oliver, 10, came to the practice. His parents made him wear a hockey mask because he eats everything in sight, even non-food items, when he doesn't wear it. Cooper asked Sheldon about pica in children and asked him to talk to Oliver. He did and then Oliver went home and ate some dirt. Oliver later came into the hospital and had to have his stomach pumped. He had eaten some moldy lawn furniture. It was then that Cooper discovered that Oliver's mother also had pica and hadn't told him.

CarlEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Heart blockage
  • Treatment:
    • Bypass surgery

Carl had passed out on the toilet and hit his head. Addison referred him to Amelia to get examined. He said he sometimes gets dizzy. His tests revealed that there might be a problem with his heart. Sam reviewed his cardiac CTs and said he had a blockage. Sam suggested he put in a stent, but Addison suggested treated it with oral medication instead so he could be discharged from the Army. He instead had the surgery. In surgery, Sam made a call that would take Carl permanently out of the Army. Carl was stable after the surgery.
