Twenty years ago Megan had her heart broken. Not that she would ever admit it. As a surgical resident in New York City, she stitched up a wounded young cop named Tommy Sullivan who had been shot during a drug bust, and a passionate love affair ensued. It ended just as tempestuously when he cheated on her. Reeling from this betrayal, Megan returned to Philadelphia, vowing never to be hurt again. She built a highly successful career and an equally successful marriage... Or so she thought. She never appreciated how the demands of her career were taking a toll on her personal life until her husband divorced her and she lost custody of their then 7-year-old daughter, Lacey. Adding to this trauma, Megan then suffered a car accident that left her with a condition called paresthesia, characterized by random attacks of numbness and cramping of her hands.
Tragically this condition failed to manifest itself until Megan's first trip back to the operating room; she lost control of her instruments and her patient died on the table. Megan's life as a neurosurgeon was over.
