Those following Ash and Kat’s storyline on Home and Away will know that Kat is struggling to juggle caring for Luc and progressing in her career.
Scenes starting to air on Friday show the pair heading out on a camping trip with baby Luc to bond.
As Ash sets up the tent, Kat goes to unpack the car, just to discover that Ash has only packed the bare essentials.
She’s left fuming, and storms off – but eventually admits that she’s really upset because she’s struggling to adjust to their new life, as it’s been a bit much to deal with both living with Ash and taking on the responsibility of Luc all at once.
When Luc finally falls asleep, the pair have some alone time and repair their relationship.
They’re surprised to wake up in the morning having slept through the night without getting woken by Luc.
Ash is immediately worried that something might be wrong – and when he tries to wake her, he can’t…
The pair speed Luc to the hospital as her condition deteriorates – and the baby starts to shake in the car like she’s having a fit.
Tori meets the trio at the hospital, and runs some tests.
She reveals that Luc has a serious bowel issue and requires emergency surgery.
Leah and Alf arrive at the hospital to be there for Luc as Tori tries to find a paediatric surgeon for the procedure.
However, the surgeon is busy at another hospital – so either Luc dies or Tori does the surgery herself.
Will Luc make it?
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5.
