Storyline

A jazz musician is brought to the hospital after collapsing during a recording session. His doctor is Foreman's mentor who diagnosed the musician as having ALS. Under Foreman's care, the man signs a DNR (do not resuscitate) form, which House ignores when he gets worse, thinking the diagnosis incorrect. While House wrangles over legal issues in court, Foreman's mentor offers him a job working for him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com/revised by statmanjeff
