Beth Gerry was a patient of Three Rivers Medical Center. Beth arrived at the hospital after Nick told her that he got out of surgeory, forgetting the sketchbook that Nick specificly asked for. She offerd to go back to the house get it, but Nick said that she didn't have to. When Dr. Miranda Foster heard that the reason the fall was not a slip, and a fainting, she asked if the fainting had happened before. Nick said no, but he had been having headaches for the past few weeks and he felt as if he was fighting off the flu. Miranda said that they had to run extra tests. Dr. Andy Yablonski tells the two couple that the CMV viris, which was what Nick had, was common, but for some, like Nick, it caused the symtoms that Nick experienced, but Andy informes them that he wasn't sue if that caused Nick to be sick. Nick declines from Beth's desion of asking another doctor's opinion. Two weeks later, Nick was almost back to normal heath; he could go home tomorrow. Nick was disapointed, because Beth was always short with him, and being in the hospital was a great way to aviod her. The unexpected comes, when Beth lands in the hospital too, and they are both in isolation. When Beth awoke, Nick explained what happened and that they were in isolation. They laugh, and Nick promises her that if they can make it through this, they can pull through anything. Nick and Beth both expeienced symtoms from cronic low-level exposre to solvent; it could cause change in behavior: depression, mood swings, and anxitiy. With medication, they could expect a full recovory.
