April is still working in peds and Stark is still handling her rejection as gracefully as you might imagine -- when she starts to talk to him about a patient he just ignores her and walks away. Meredith sees this and teases April that she broke his heart, but gives some credit since no one thought he actually had one in the first place. April leaves as Richard walks up and he and Mere both awkwardly ask each other how their trials are going. Mere has a new patient that day, while Richard has picked Avery to assist him. Mere asks after Adele and Richard says that she's all right, but he takes off his coat as he heads to his office and a Post-It flutters to the floor without his realizing. Meredith tries to call after him but he doesn't hear, and she finally looks down and heaves a sad sigh when she reads the note.
Alex finds Arizona gazing at some x-rays and after he takes a glance, he marvels at just how messed up the patient is. It turns out to be a child on whom Arizona was supposed to operate the next week in Africa, but she can't go now on account of her having her own sick baby and fiancée in Seattle. Alex suggests flying the kid out but Arizona tells him there's too much red tape and it's too expensive, adding that there's also at least a dozen more kids that could use the same help. She's trying to find a doctor in Africa to fill in for her but for now is upset because she made a promise and now has to break it.
Cristina is back in Callie's room, where the patient is grumbling at having to wait a few more days before she can try sitting up. As they chat Cristina admits that she and Teddy had a falling out over Callie's surgery, and Cristina claims that she's now giving Teddy some space. I'm not sure if she's trying to just sell that BS to Callie or if she's also trying to convince herself that it's true, because it seems more to me like Teddy is "giving" Cristina her own "space" by just straight-up refusing to put her on any other cardio cases. Hey, whatever gets you through the long, surgery-less day. She asks Callie what she needs, and Callie tells her dead seriously that she needs to see Sofia. Cristina tries to diffuse the situation with her usual charm, telling Callie that right now her baby is mostly tubes and wires, but that what you can see looks like a featherless, beakless chicken, so Callie should wait until she's cuter. Callie observes that Cristina is the worst godmother ever, but Cristina just points out that Callie was the one to pick her. Touché. It distracts Callie a little bit but then April runs in to gush that Sofia opened her eyes, and she's so excited that she doesn't notice Callie starting to cry as she babbles. April is horrified when she realizes she didn't take a picture and then more so when she sees Callie sobbing, and Cristina shoves her out of the room to get pictures as fast as possible. Something in Callie snaps, and she grabs the bar above her bed and tries to pull herself up and she cries that she's missing Sofia's life, and that if the baby dies then she will have missed everything. She may be a terrible godmother but Cristina is a good friend, and she tries to soothe Callie and to keep her from busting her incision right back open by pulling herself up.
