Plot synopsis

Main plot

Stacey's diabetes has been difficult to control lately. Between dealing with the bickering between her divorced parents, and trying to get everything done when she's feeling lousy, Stacey's been feeling depressed. She cheats on her diet with chocolate and candy to make herself feel better, but instead she becomes very sick and is hospitalized while visiting her father in New York City.

Stacey is in the hospital for awhile as doctors struggle to regain control of her disease. The BSC comes to visit twice and brings cards and gifts from their sitting charges. Her parents spend lots of time with her but can't get along when they're both in the same room. Stacey eventually accepts that they can't be around each other. She finally gets better and returns to Stoneybrook.

Secondary plot

Charlotte Johanssen is very upset when she hears Stacey is hospitalized. She becomes a hypochondriac, insisting that she has a new disease or condition every few minutes. She's miraculously cured of all her symptoms when she hears Stacey will be returning home.

Other plot information

Before getting sick, Stacey sits for Charlotte and Becca Ramsey at the Johanssens' house; the girls make fudge while pretending to be Martians.
