This is just to let you all know I'm alive and well, well, alive anyway

Yes, I've been quite the recluse on LJ recently. Between work and shopping and holiday planning I just haven't had much time to spend online. I've been perusing though and I don't think I missed any major life altering events.

Anyway, for my fellow House fans a few thoughts about tonight's episode.....

Being that this is a medical show and one dealing with mysterious illnesses that bring people to the brink of death, I knew it was just a matter of time before House and company lost a patient. But did they have to start with a newborn? God that was heartbreaking to watch. And as angry as you could be with his choice to sacrifice one child in an attempt to save the others I still sympathized with him because, frankly, sometimes doctors just don't know what to do. It's scary to think about, but it's the truth.

As is the fact that hospitals are a dangerous place for a patient. Do you tell the kind hearted old woman passing out teddy bears that she has to go home until she's better because she killed an infant? :(

I debated whether having the secondary story of the clueless, paniced mother included was a good idea or not. In the end, I think you needed to inject some humor into the story that could have been unrelentenly bleak otherwise. And I couldn't help but crack up at House providing neo-natal advice in order to retain lounge privileges. :)

While I'm sorry if Dr Cameron had to suffer through the loss of a child, she's really chosen the wrong profession if she can't break bad news to her patients.

Another solid outing that kept me glued to my seat. Anyone know how it's doing in the ratings? I'm still waiting for one of my shows to get cancelled. I've been far too lucky recently.
