LAst week 's episode of ER was titled "Parental Guidance" and it really struck a nerve for me. One of the cases was a 13yo girl who fell off a concrete ledge. She was a gymnast. Her mom and little sister (12yo) came in. As they were putting the 13yo to sleep she said that "She pushed me.". Of course the docs talked to the mom and called social services. As they were talking to the mom, the 13yo went into resp. distress. The younger sis was int he room and has turned the O2 down. Then, later the younger sis did something else. The new head of the ER had a talk with the 12yo girl and she fell apart, screaming she wouldn't stay in the hospital. this was after the docs figured out the younger sis was hurting the older one. At the end the mom was talking with the head doctor, and asked if her daughter was going to be OK, be a "normal girl". The ER doctor didn't lie, she just said, "I don't know." The mom fell apart, saying the doctor had to do better, that "I don't know" just wasn't good enough. I know how that mom felt. I think many of us do. We just want to think, at least for a while, that our kids will outgrow all of this and have normal lives, be happy and normal. I really wish the docs COULD honestly tell us it would all be OK. But they can't. And we end up feeling so lost and alone. Did anyone else see this? IMDB still has it up, problem will for a week or two.. They keep episodes of ER posted for a couple of weeks. Here is the link to it, if anyone wants to see it. http://www.imdb.com/video/hulu/vi761987097/ I would be interested to see your takes on the way this was handled.
