At the Forrester mansion, Eric is going through old Christmas decorations when he finds a candy cane Ridge made as a kid. Ridge comes in and asks, “You wanted to see me?” Eric says it’s important, “Sit down.” They chuckle over the old handmade keepsakes and then Eric tells his son he’s worried about him. He doesn’t want him to feel alone this holiday season.

In Dr. Buckingham’s office, Katie tells the doctor that she shouldn’t have put off her appointment. She rambles that the doctor hasn’t said anything yet… which also isn’t good. Carter points out she hasn’t let the woman get a word in edgewise. Grace just watches them. Katie asks again, “What are my results?” She keeps talking about being on borrowed time as a transplant survivor. Grace finally lets her know that her recent results are all positive. “There are no indications of rejection whatsoever… You’re doing well, Katie.” Katie wipes away tears of relief.
