  • 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.
