The Fault in Our Stars Chapter 7 Summary

  • Hazel is rushed to the hospital and passes out along the way.
  • She wakes up and is in the ICU alone.
  • She learns that she does not have a brain tumor, but that her lungs had a bunch of fluid in them and they had to be drained.
  • Augustus has been in the waiting room the whole time.
  • She spends a whole six days in the hospital before she is allowed to go home.
  • Augustus finally gets to see her and proclaims to her that he missed her.
  • He also tells her that they can't go to Amsterdam until she's better, but that Peter Van Houten wrote him a letter.
  • Hazel is obviously beyond excited about this missive from Van Houten and she asks her mom right away if she can go to Amsterdam.
  • This girl just won't quit.
