Have there been an side efforts from being born early?
This is what I was thinking or rather, when the preemie dad was freaking out I wished they would have discussed this properly. Rather than him coming across as an asshat who did not even try to bond with the child because he thought it had no chance, I wish they would have had a real conversation about the dangers of being born that prematurely. Even if baby Tommy (Timmy?) survives, chances of having severe learning difficulties are very high, as well as chronic lung problems, possible blindness, etc... I work in a hospital, and I see these kids all the time. My daughter was in the NICU and I saw parents torn over these decisions. But of course at Seattle Grace the magical surgeons (who for some reason run the NICU, rather than non surgical neonatologists) will make sure that every baby not only survives but is absolutely fine.
It angered me with Sofia and it still angers me here. The dad sounded horrible yelling "he might not have a life worth living" at his distraught wife, but that is actually something that they should discuss. People have terminations all the time for fetuses affected with syndromes that cause learning difficulties (such as Down's syndrome), and I understand (though I am not sure what I would do in that case), but a 24 week preemie is fought for tooth and nail. And I understand them fighting for the baby as well, don't take me wrong. But I think there should be some talking about it, just like a termination i not decided willy nilly, the decision to keep a child that may very well be very sick his entire life, should also be discussed. And I think Grey's does a terrible job portraying this. It is the good mom who loves her baby (and an army of drs) against the evil dad who is unattached and uses a freaking app to see how likely his son is to survive.
I did kind of like the story with the exploding coffee machine and the guy who thought the girl was flirting with him. I liked that there was no sweet ending where the staff pushed their beds together and they fell in love with each other or anything like that.
Kinda digged that Mark thought Derek was talking about Jackson when he said "better half". And I hate the Mark/Lexie/Avery triangle, I don't want any of those three together (or maybe now I want Mark and Avery together... not Lexie though). I could nto read what we were supposed to get from Arizona's stalkerish smirk in the end. Was she supposed to be happy (like someone pointed out here) that Alex was acting human and kind? I thought she was trying to push Alex to date Lexie again (but that may be MY wish, I loved those two together, rather than Arizona's).
Hate Owen, hate Teddy, please can they leave now? And I hate the shadow of a woman Cristina is now. I feel there is some serious character assasination going on there. Cristina would not grovel, she would not try to make Owen sleep with her, Cristina would not be obsessed with her guy cheating... or would she? And this over a relationship that is broken beyond repair as it is. Just ridiculous.
