Avik looked at the diagnosis. A concern surfaced into her dark eyes, but she said nothing and pulled on her sterilized gloves. The XO inhaled then exhaled as she began. During her time being a medical officer, she experienced both tragic loss and unexplained miracles. She dreaded the one she would find with Captain Massey.

Time tickled down in the Vulcan’s mental clock. Her head and hands worked in unison as she tried to save the patient’s life. She started off with medications to support the repair system damaged by the radiation and stop the cells from absorbing more. She moved onto the fracture, removing the pieces to assess the damage underneath. The impact had left many nerves severed or crushed near the brain stem. After seeing the amount of damage, the XO knew the odds were grim. The woman required a specialist. Regardless of reality, Avik continued to work in an attempt to beat the odds.

When the surgery finished, the Vulcan woman began to assist in the cleanup. Her eyes flickered to the monitor displaying Captain Massey’s condition. A small sigh escaped through her nostrils. The patient had been put on a life support system, but her brain didn’t respond to any stimulation. By medical definition, Captain Massey was brain-dead. She hoped the CMO faired far better than she had.

–XO, Avik, Lt. Cmdr

The Andorian doctor was concentrating hard, his hands moving in precise maneuvers as he worked to repair the tear in the Lieutenant’s kidney. Stopping the internal bleeding had been his primary goal. The Damage to the man’s DNA was going to take time and treatment, and possibly would need treatment for the rest of his life, considering the amount of radiation he’d been subjected to… Using a tissue regenerator, Tolar closed the tear and reinforced it with a pattern of overlapping scar tissue that should keep it from reopening, but not inhibit the function of the organ going forward. Once that was done, he moved to reasses the liver and spleen injuries, cleaning up and reinforcing that work so the damage could heal on it’s own. Once that was done, Tolar turned to an aide.

“Give me a 10cc mixture of 70% Hyronalin, 30% Lectrazine, let’s see if we can halt the radiation damage in his cells…”

-Zarath, CMO

They gathered the medications and handed them over to Zarath with practiced efficiency. Given the extent of the prolonged injuries, this surgery was taking longer than the other.

Abrams, COS

The Surgery did take much longer than anticipated. A few hours later, a very tired sounding Doctor Zarath sent a message to Cassidy Abrams. “Lieutenant, if you’d like to see your father, you may. He isn’t awake yet, and it may be a few more hours until he is… but I believe he’s stable. The damage to his cellular structure was quite bad, but the treatment seems to be working. We can’t know for sure because of the extent of the damage, but his cells are regenerating at the normal rate. The organ tissues and bleeding have been repaired successfully, though the healing process will be much longer due to the cellular decay he’s suffered.”

-Zarath, CMO

There were several beats of silence before Cassidy’s voice sounded through the comm. =/\= And Captain Massey?=/\= she asked, knowing her mother would want to know that information. Many different things hinged on the outcomes of both surgeries but in very different ways.

Abrams, COS

Marsh chimed in, =&=Thank you doctor…=^= He glanced over to Cassidy as he walked nearer so he didn’t have to project to be heard over the comm badge on Cassidy’s chest. “Be nice, the doctor just put in seven hours of surgery.”


Cass’ face shifted expressions, morphing from worry to sadness, to resolve in a matter of seconds. She nodded at Marsh.

“Don’t mention it…” The Doctor muttered, only slightly sarcastically. He was exhausted and unhappy with how the surgery had gone.

-Zarath, CMO

OOC: Getting my 21st migraine of this month. Expect me to be a bit sporadic. I’m trying but I just am not doing great right now.
Cass really had wanted to know about Captain Massey for her mother’s sake, but either way they all needed to get to Sickbay. =/\=We’re on our way,=/\= she said finally.

A few minutes later, they approached Sickbay. Cass stopped and gave Steven an indiscernible look before she took a deep breath and stepped in, following her mother in.

Norene looked for Zarath even though her instinct was to rush to her husband’s side. “How conscious is he? Do you know if he’s aware?”

One of the other doctors waved them over. “He’s still unconscious, but he’s moved into deep sleep. I think at this point he just needs a lot of rest. He might be able to hear you, but don’t be surprised if he doesn’t wake up.”

Norene nodded and reached out to squeeze Cass’ shoulder. Cass smiled wearily at her mother and moved around the other side of her father’s bed.

Norene pulled a stool over and sat as she contemplated her husband. Reaching out, she gently stroked his head, marvelling that they had made it this far. “We made it,” she said softly. “Not enough of us though. I’ll feel better when I can look into your eyes though.” She glanced over at her daughter briefly. “And Cass is here too. No doubt she’l have a pretty good story to share with us about they found us, but we can wait till you wake up.”

Reaching out and taking her father’ limp hand, Cass nodded. “It can wait.”

Inhaling deeply, Norene leaned forward off the stool and kissed Adir’s head. “I’ll be back. I’m going to check on Maxine.” She got up and moved to the other side of Sickbay where Captain Massey was.

For the moment Cass was just happy holding his hand and sitting with him. She glanced up at the readings and saw that yes it might be a little while later.
