Everyone was packed into a small conference room, waiting to hear the news. After 30 long minutes, which felt like several hours, Doctor Webber frantically swung open the door. “QUICK!” there was a huge bombing at a bus station and there are currently 42 people on their way here” yelled Webber. All the doctors rose up in a hurry but two, Doctor Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey whom had gotten in a fight the other night. Mark was hesitant to talk to her but he needed to. As he walked towards her he said dourly, “Lex, we have to talk about what happened yesterday, we can’t just forget about the fact that I had proposed and you walked away”. Lexie turned around and said, “I don’t have time for this, we will talk later...”. When they walked out, the hospital was a zoo! Medical carts that were zooming everywhere, doctors running, people screaming and patients’ family members walking around anxiously, trying to find out where their loved ones were. There was one patient in particular that caught Lexie’s eye, a young girl who unfortunately had a jagged a piece of metal sticking out of her arm as if it was a nail in a piece of wood. Lexie ran to the girl and asked her about her situation. “I don't know what happened, I was getting off the train with my mommy and then a huge explosion went off, and next thing I know there is metal in my arm. Will you please help me, it hurts really bad,” said the little girl. Doctor Grey then replied, “Of course I will, no problem at all. First we need to take you to get an x-ray to see how deep it is, then right into surgery where you won't feel a thing!” On the way to the x-ray room, a million things were going on in Lexie’s mind about Mark. The thing is, last night he had proposed to her but in the past he had been fishing in troubled waters. Mark had gotten himself into serious trouble with drugs and alcohol. Lexie knew that wasn't who he was anymore, that he had changed, that he would never be that guy again, but deep down inside she was scared and had to make an omniscient choice. She was scared that something so little could send him over the edge and back into his bad habits. There was no point in telling him that, he already knew and was hurt that she thought that. Mark was doing everything he could to prove to her that his use of drugs and alcohol would never come up again. “Enough about Mark, I can't be thinking about this right now. There is a little girl that needs me to fix her and i can't screw up,” she thought. The x-ray showed the results that Lexie was longing for. As she looked closely at the x-ray, there were small fragments of metal all throughout the arm that could not have been seen from the outside of her skin. Immediately Lexie realized the girl’s arm was worse than she thought and would quickly become infected. The girl was then rushed to the operating room to have the metal scrap removed from her arm. As a small 6-year-old girl, of course she had lots of questions, such as, “Will I feel anything? Will it hurt after? What if i don't wake up? How long will this take?” Doctor Grey then explained “Don't worry about anything, you will be fine.” She felt as if she could be infallible but that wasn't always the case. Everything went perfectly until something that Lexie never imagined would have to happen.
