With George still shaky, Callie won't let him near her case, a woman with an incredibly rare disease which turns muscle into bone, since the slightest touch can cause more bone to grow. Just Izzie's luck: Miranda assigns her to help out the O'Malleys. Callie's patient, Cathy, has internal bleeding, probably caused from too many painkillers. She knows she'll die of this disease soonerOR or later, so she asks what will happen if she refuses the surgery. Callie tells she'll bleed to death. Her daughter, Nina, won't hear of her mother giving up, and insists on the surgery. She bleeds out on the operating table but shein wouldlife alsowe have died if they opened her up. Izzie tells the daughter that her mother was ready to go. Cristina sees a construction worker with diabetes complaining of a sore foot but the sore is so bad that the foot has to be removed. He begs her toimprovise. findOf course, some way to save it. She pores over books, equating the man's foot with her own floundering relationship, but in the end, she can't save it. But she decides she can still save her relationship: Before his board presentation, she tells Burke he's still the same man the Chief originally chose and he tells her hopes he's grown since then. That night, Cristina finally returns to Burke's apartment and agrees to a wedding, only if it's small and not religious. Derek is keeping tabs on Meredith, who seems cheery enough,of talkingus aboutare howbetter herat deadit motherthen wouldothers. approveSome of a procedureus she'sjust goinghave to do move on Jane Doe: Sloan is going to let her harvest bone from her face by herself. Derek is concerned that Mark is using her, Ellis Grey's daughter, to impress Richard. Derek confesses to Richard that he can't focus on presenting his plan to the board, since he's so worried about Meredithb and that his only 10-year plan is about her. Meredith is not pleased at Derek's being overly protective, but she tells Mark that she won't do it just to serve his ends. He says that the Chief has been looking at her like a lost puppy, but if she doesmake the surgery, he'll look at her like a surgeon again. She decides to do it and comes through with flying colors. "My dead Mommy would be proud," she later tells Derek, who needs cheering up after his board presentation flopped, although he doesn't tell her why he was distracted.
