Chase takes Frankie to some room for testing, apologizing for waking her up in the middle of the night. He lets her know how and why he came up with the Sjogrens theory, and she asks if he thinks she's crazy to make her life so public. He says he does find it a bit strange that she is so open with strangers, but Frankie says they aren't strangers to her -- they comment on her blog, e-mail her, offer up their kidneys, etc. Except that if Frankie has readers as far away as Singapore, then she's probably really popular and thus gets thousands of unique hits a day, so she cannot possibly know who every one of those hits comes from. So yes, strangers are in fact reading about her sex life. Also reading about her sex life? Could be her mother. Or father. Or fifth grade teacher. This is why we don't make certain facts about ourselves available for just anyone to learn. Frankie asks Chase if he's in a relationship, because that's definitely a question I find appropriate to ask my doctor. Chase says his last relationship ended "recently" but declines to provide any more details. I'm sure that in about five minutes, PPTH is going to get some calls from Frankie.com fans who would love to meet an attractive single doctor. Chase tells Frankie to lie on her back for the test. She lies on her side instead, saying she doesn't like to lie flat on her back.
The next morning, Chase enters the meeting room and informs the Cottages and House that he booked Frankie for heart surgery, as her complaint about not wanting to lie on her back is common amongst people with heart valve problems. Heart valve problems can also be an effect of Sjogrens, making it the most likely diagnosis right now. He backed this up with an echocardiogram just to make sure that his theory was correct, and found that Frankie's mitral valve is "nearly gone." That can't be good. Nor is the fact that your mitral valve can apparently disintegrate and the only indication is not wanting to lie on your back.
