At Turning Woods, a doctor speaks with Carly, Sonny, and Joss about Mike. The oxygen Mike is on will keep him comfortable, as will medication for any pain. He encourages them to visit with Mike. They go in to see Mike, and Sonny tells his father that they are there for him and he won’t go through this alone. Carly excuses herself to call Michael, and Joss asks Sonny for a moment alone to privately say goodbye. Sonny leaves them, and Joss tells Mike that he’s the only grandfather she’s ever known and can’t picture her future without him. She thinks about milestones to come and how she wishes he could be there. She envisions him seeing her off to the homecoming dance and being able to see her graduate with honors. She promises to make him proud and imagines Mike sharing a moment with her after her wedding, and her sharing the news she’s pregnant with him. In the hall, Carly tells Sonny that no matter how far gone Mike seems, his memories of all of them are in there still.
