All three of the kids are sick with what looks to be the flu. Grace in particular requires a trip to see the doctor. Dr. Link confirms that Grace is indeed at the tail end of her bout with the flu, but that Fran has a case of tonsillitis which requires removal of her tonsils. Fran is a little scared about the surgery, and without her parents around to comfort her, Maxwell and the kids offer to wait at the hospital until the surgery is complete. This leave C.C. in the lurch as Maxwell was supposed to escort her to her school reunion that evening, where she is in competition for the perfect life with her old school mates. Under heavy sedation prior to the surgery, Fran tells Maxwell that she loves him. He's concerned about how he's going to deal with her and this news after she comes out of her drug induced state. But after surgery, he learns he has nothing to worry about. As Maxwell sees that Fran is fine, he rushes off to C.C.'s reunion - better late than never? Written by Huggo
