This week on ABC‘s NY Med, love is in the air as Nurse Marina Dedivanovic deals with some boy troubles, and a young cystic fibrosis patient, Lyndsey McLaughlin, battles the life-threatening disease with the support of her family and friends. What did you miss?
As Katie Duke, RN, says, “It’s not always a lovefest” in the ER. Unless you’re Nurse Marina Dedivanovic; the one who all of the male ER patients are always swooning over.
She’s got all of the guys wrapped around her finger at work and at home.
She and her boyfriend, Steve, are heading to Miami for a romantic vacation. Unfortunately for Steve, he doesn’t know that Marina is still in love with her ex.
He’s ready for marriage, but she knows it’s not fair for her to lead him on if she’s not feelin’ it.
So, she eventually breaks things off with Steve and gets back with her ex, Bekim.
The love connection we’re waiting for though, is between doctors Anthony Watkins and Arundi Mahendran. We know he’s married and she’s got “friends,” but we can’t help but wonder if there’s a little something going on there.
Twenty-six year old Lyndsey McLaughlin is battling cystic fibrosis; a disease that causes mucous to literally fill the lungs until they stop working. But she’s not in this fight alone. With her are her doctor, Joshua Sonnett, MD, and her family, who are all determined for Lyndsey to receive the lung transplant she needs before it’s too late.
She’s been waiting for that phone call for 7 months, hoping to hear that there’s a viable set of lungs ready for her so she can start living the life of a healthy young woman.
Finally, that call comes…three times. The first two times she missed it, because she was in the shower, but still…it came. Apparently, there’s a potential match right in New York City.
The lungs aren’t perfect, but they’ll do, so the surgery is on.
Her parents and brothers anxiously wait as Dr. Sonnett carefully tries to remove Lyndsey’s lungs, which are so large that there’s a danger of damaging the nerves and ruining her chance of receiving new ones.
Despite a few setbacks with the left lung, the transplant is a success, and Lyndsey and her family are able to breathe easy.
