Already thinking of the worst she's apologetic to her husband Thomas (Gaius Charles) as he thinks he may have to nurse her. Not panicking he calmly tells her to get a second opinion which was a good thing as it turns out she had fibroids not cancer. But this diagnosis comes with some setbacks as she is told that surgery can be delayed now but if it gets worse she will have to get it later and possibly a hysterectomy as well.
