While on an off-world mission, Rodney McKay acquires a parasitic organism and over a period of a few weeks, degenerates into a child-like reverie. His sister Jeannie travels to Atlantis to be with him in what everyone believes will be his final few days.

It works but McKay isn't too keen on it being his last day of life and Dr. Keller suggests thew only other option is for her to operate.
