The question of where Eela should be was something she was going to bring up, so Caridee was glad that was a non-issue. However, she didn’t want to comment on duration at this time. This was a not a ‘give the patient an injection and everything if better’ sort of situation and she doubted news as big as the death of an ambassadorial aide would stay secret for long. She hoped she could do enough to help her mother before then, but Caridee was going to be realistic.
Slipping off the stool, she carefully grabbed her teacup, took a sip, and nodded. “Alright, here we go,” Caridee said as she turned and headed for the living room.
Eela was where they had left her, with signs she had had a tiny bit of the juice, and she was curled up in the corner with an arm braced on the top of the sofa and her head resting on said arm. She looked exhausted but just gazed out the window as if searching for something.
Caridee set her cup on the coffee table and grabbed the bag she had brought with her, pulling out items and setting them on the table. A cortical monitor, a tricorder, a PADD, and a small metal medallion. She sat next to her mother and tried to meet her gaze and after a moment simply waved a couple fingers in front of her mothers eyes without comment, noting the non-reaction. Caridee grabbed the cortical monitor and then her mothers hand and waited a few seconds.
After a few seconds, Eela focused on Caridee. “You have your tea?”
“I do,” Dee said. “You trust me, right?”
Eela’s expression softened. “Of course I do. You’ve been there for me, Dee, through so much.”
Caridee gave a soft smile. “And this is no different, which is why I going to put this on you”-she held the cortical monitor in her flat palm-“and I’m going to take some scans. If I’m right about what going on with you, then I’m going to need backup, which means calling Doctor Fayth, and calling someone on Halii I know for a consult.”
Eela frowned. “It’s that bad?”
“It’s not good,” Caridee said. “And the faster we act, the better things will be and the better we can get you.” She hadn’t yet discussed the severe effects that could happen if they couldn’t treat the issue, because as far as Caridee was considered, that not only wasn’t an option but it was too early to worry about that.
“Okay,” Eela whispered.
With a nod, Caridee placed the monitor near her mother’s brain stem and then connected the readouts to a PADD. “This PADD will beep when it notices you having absence seizures. I’ve seen one just now, and my guess is you’ve had a few today already. They aren’t harmful, but they might feel disconcerting. The Governor said he’d be here, even if I am not, and so I don’t want you to worry. You’ll be safe.”
Eela looked to Kenzo and nodded. “Bet you didn’t think you’d be stuck with babysitter duty today of all days…”
Kenzo simply shrugged, as if it was nothing.
Caridee tried not to smirk as she grabbed the tricorder and took some scans. A minute later, she downloaded the results to her PADD and tried not to sigh.
“I know that professional look where you’re trying to work up the nerve to share bad news. Spill it, daughter of mine,” Eela said.
She looked between the two leaders of this planet with as neutral expression as she could, but Kenzo would know Caridee was very worried and just masking it. “As I expected, several of your neurotransmitters are severely imbalanced, and there is issues with the paracortex and amygdala. It’s all indicative of Kuskaartiz Syndrome, a form of psychic shock that happens to Haliians. Can you think of anything that’s happened with your telepathy that would cause that?”
Eela frowned deeply. “I don’t think so. I can’t imagine anything happening like that that I wouldn’t be aware of.”
Caridee agreed and looked up at Kenzo. “Is there somewhere I can make those calls?”

“Other side of the kitchen, down the hall on the right. Desk interface.” he said. He thennwaited for Caridee to leave.
With a nod, Caridee took the PADD and went off to make her calls.
Finding the interface, Caridee sent a message to her old mentor on Halii, requesting a call as soon as possible for an urgent patient consult. Then she put in a call to Sacred Heart for Doctor Fayth, also stating an urgent situation. She wasn’t even sure of the woman was at work yet and since the news was not even know outside of select people, Caridee wasn’t sure how exactly to broach this. But she hoped whomever was forwarding her call would know that it was important, even if Caridee wasn’t a doctor on staff.

Sharah had been woken up long before her shift by the sound of her comms. She could tell something was wrong as she slid out of bed and made her way into the other room to answer it. There were notes and gusts of discord among the usual noise of Oed. It wasn’t a lot of people but it was strong enough to be noticed even if she couldn’t pin point it.
After she closed the comm with McBride she sighed. Poor Eela and Ambassador Mathis. After the call she went into the kitchen to make hot chocolate and start getting ready for the day. She didn’t see the need to try and sleep more after that news.
As she was finishing her hot chocolate the comms sounded again. Sharah had all her comms from the hospital forwarded to the house when she wasn’t there. She moved over to the computer and took the call. “Dr. Seven? What can I do for you?”
||Doctor Fayth, I’m sorry to bother you at this hour. I know it’s still early.||
Caridee tried not to look worried, but failed miserably. ||I’m not sure if you’re aware of what’s going on, but there’s a crisis that has unfolded this morning. My mother… is not well, but it’s not just a psychological issue. She’s experiencing an acute condition that affects Hallians who go through some sort of psychic trauma, and it’s not something that can be emotionally triggered. Now, I am more than qualified to help her through it, and I need to consult with an expert back on Halii, but I would feel much more comfortable having one of my mother’s medical team involved, and I know you know her well and you are close.||
