Paramedic 1: There’s only room for one family member to come with us. The rest can follow us to the hospital.

Carter looks at Reeves.brooke-davis-va-a-l-hopital-image-403978-article-ajust_930

Reeves: Go. We’ll be right behind you.

Carter: Thank you.

Carter rushes in after Lexie.

Reeves: We’re right behind you Lexie, Princess hang on.

wilsonbetheleditiedReeves and the guys rush to their car to follow.

Paramedic 2: Is there anything we should know about your wife sir? Any pre-existing conditions? Any allergies to any medication?

Carter looks up at the paramedic.

Carter: She’s pregnant.

The paramedic looks up at him.

Paramedic 2: How far along?

Carter: Can’t be too far, 2 months at most? I just found out.

Paramedic 1: Ok well don’t worry we’re gonna get her to the hospital and do the best we can to save your wife and your baby.

The ambulance drives off in a hurry

As Carter can be seen through the small rear window clinging onto Lexie’s hand.julian-au-chevet-de-sa-fiancee-brooke-davis-image-403980-article-ajust_930

The paramedics rush Lexie into the hospital and Carter rushes in behind. What really sounded like the paramedics relaying her condition to the doctors on staff was all muffled and blurred as Carter saw everything around him in slow motion, unable to comprehend what was actually happening.

Ides-of-March-From-the-Red-Carpet-4Reeves and the others rush in.

Reeves: Carter, where is she?20100129_MBenard_Solo_559x445

Carter snaps out of it quickly.

Carter: They took her into surgery….Reeves…there’s something I need to tell you…

11367_1_64038Reeves looks at him worried.

Carter: Lexie’s pregnant.

Reeves stares at him in shock and then looks away.

Carter: I just found out tonight.

Wilson+Bethel+Hart+Dixie+Season+1+Episode+ILTRu8cV03UlBrice looks on shocked too.

Carter: She’s not that far along… 2 months maybe, she can’t… she can’t lose that baby… not again, it’ll ruin her.

Joe looks away.Dean-Winchester-7x08-Season-Seven-Time-For-A-Wedding-dean-winchester-26813001-1280-720

Carter notices.

Carter: You don’t seem surprised?

Joe: I knew. Lexie told me just before the explosion. She told me so that I could tell you, that if anything were to happen to her…that you should focus on the baby.

Carter: What?

Joe: She wanted me to tell you to save the baby, over saving her.

ryan-gosling-ides-of-marchCarter: She said the same thing to me before she passed out. But I don’t understand that doesn’t make sense. The baby isn’t even fully developed, I mean how could I-

Joe: It makes sense to Lexie. Look I know you know our history. She’s miscarried before. Children are all she’s ever wanted, a family is all she’s ever wanted. So she wanted me to tell you…so I did. I get that it doesn’t make sense, but it’s what she wanted.

Carter: Yea I get it. Thanks.

Joe nods.Season-5-Episode-8-Changing-Channels-dean-winchester-9023954-1280-720

Brice: Look they’re working on Lexie right now. There’s no reason to assume the worst, we just need to hope and pray that both Lexie and the baby come out of this on top.

Brice tries to keep things calm and be the voice of reason.

Drive_2Carter’s tears roll down his cheeks.

Carter: She has to, they both have too.

Reeves: They will. (he pats Carter on the back) Lexie’s a fighter. She usually gets what she wants. And she wants a life with you.

Carter nods wiping his tear ridden face.

ultram-tramadol-before-takingA female doctor approaches them.

Doctor: Are you all here for Lexie?

Reeves: Yes, I’m her father, this is her….husband.

Carter: (Carter slightly smiles at Reeves’ gesture) How is she? How’s the baby?

Doctor: Lexie’s stable.

They all sigh out of relief.

Doctor: But she’s not out of the woods just yet. There was no exit wound, so we had to operate to remove the bullet which we were able to do, and stitch her up which is good. But she’s lost a lot of blood so she needs a transfusion. So we’ll be doing that shortly.

Carter: And the baby?

Doctor: We had to concentrate on Lexie first. Given the fact that Lexie is only 2 months pregnant, the best chance that baby has of survival is based on how well Lexie recovers. As of right now the only thing I can tell you is that Lexie is doing well. The position of the gun shot being on her upper shoulder was in her favor, anything closer to the abdomen would have caused serious damage. So it’s quite possible the baby is just fine. But it’s still a very traumatic experience for Lexie’s body to go through while pregnant. So once we do the transfusion, and she’s able to rest more, we’ll proceed with an ultrasound and check on the baby. From that point on we’ll be able to find out what’s going on with the baby. But right now I need to get back to your wife. Hang in there.

Drive_2Carter: Doctor? Please save my baby. Please. It’ll wreck my wife, if she loses it.

Doctor: We’re gonna do everything in our power to make sure she doesn’t.

Carter: Can I be there… when you do the ultrasound….please?

Doctor: Of course. I’ll have a nurse come and get you when it’s time.

Carter: Thank you.

The hospital room is bright and white Lexie’s eyes flutter open to be met by blurred faces hovering over her and random noises she doesn’t understand. Her vision clears and the noises take shape in the form of medical machinery. A feeling of panic sweeps over her.

Doctor: Well hello, look who decided to join the party?ultram-tramadol-before-taking

Lexie: Where am I?

Doctor: The hospital. You were shot in the shoulder.

Lexie: Oh my god, no, no. (she grabs her stomach)

Doctor: Just relax ok, Lexie. Relax. We fixed you up, and you’re gonna be good as new in no time.

Lexie: What about my baby? How’s my baby?

Doctor: We’re just about to find out.

A nurse brings Carter in.

Carter: Lexie?

250px-822BrookeafterbirthLexie: Carter. (she starts crying)

Carter: Thank god you’re ok.

He kisses her614-00775

Lexie: Carter, the baby…I may have lost the baby…

Carter: We don’t know that. (he grabs her hand.) It’s ok. I’m right here. It’s gonna be ok. We just have to have a little faith. Your mom’s up there, I think she has a bit of pull with the big guy upstairs right? (he smiles)

Lexie nods and smiles faintly.

Doctor: Ok… are we ready?

Carter kisses Lexie

brulian_daily_002Carter: (he cups her face) You ready?

Lexie nods and grabs his hand tighter

Doctor: Ok we’re gonna do a sonogram to find out what’s going on with that baby of yours…hqdefault

The doctor lifts Lexie’s gown up and pours some gel onto her stomach; she rubs the machine onto Lexie’s stomach. Lexie shuts her eyes, nervous to face what’s happening.

Carter looks at her and kisses her forehead.

Doctor: Ok…so you’re only 2 months, so what we’re looking for is basically a little dot…ah…Right. About. There. (She points to the screen.) And as long as there’s a heartbeat, we’re in good shape.

All of a sudden the small rhythmic thumping is heard.

Bub bumb. bub bumb. bub bumb

Lexie’s eyes shoot open.

Carter looks at the screen.

Doctor: Well look at that…we’ve got a fighter…must take after its mom. (she smiles)

Lexie and Carter kiss and he hugs her tightly.
