What Happened To MacKenzie And Her Baby?

MacKenzie was taken to Huntington Hospital for delivery because it was time for the arrival of her baby girl. But MacKenzie’s baby weighed too little as compared to an average infant. Therefore, MacKenzie had to be induced with Cytotec, but the baby couldn’t tolerate the injections well and reacted very badly to them. It seemed that MacKenzie had to opt for a cesarean because every time she went into labor, the baby’s heartbeat dropped. Although she wished for a normal birth, MacKenzie had no choice but to undergo the procedure with Doctor Afshan. There was a risk of infection and bleeding, and doctors knew MacKenzie might need a blood transfusion to save her baby. The next day, MacKenzie prepared for surgery and was confident because the doctors at Hungtington were very helpful. In addition, MacKenzie’s husband, Lorey, had always been by her side. Finally, the operation went well, and MacKenzie gave birth to a healthy baby girl, whom she later named Fiamma.


Did Joseph Survive The Gunshot Wound?

Joseph was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital for treatment of his gunshot wound. His uncle had accidentally shot him because he forgot to check the gun before pointing it at Joseph. Joseph wanted the surgery to be successful; he didn’t want to be crippled for life. Meanwhile, Doctor David was devastated because Joseph had high expectations for this operation. David knew that it was impossible to restore his movement entirely. The bullet had entered the right side of his neck and exited from the left side. Dr. David and his team planned to restore Joseph’s ability to move and placed small screws in his face to prevent slight movement. When the entire procedure was completed, Dr. David knew there was a good chance Joseph would regain his ability to move. Although Joseph was severely injured, his spinal cord was still intact. The surgery was a success, and there was a great chance that Joseph could regain his movement as the screws will protect his bones from further damage. When Joseph woke up, he found that most of his body had recovered from the surgery, and he promised to work hard to regain the missing movements as well.
