'Grey's Anatomy' recap: Shower and Responsibility

Last night's episode taught us all about responsibility. The doctors of Seattle Grace pretty much exude responsible behavior, especially when it comes to their patients. (There are some obvious exceptions from over the years. I'm looking at you, Izzie Stevens.) But when it comes down to it, you're usually in good hands with these people. But as Meredith pointed out in her voiceover, this leaves little responsibility left over for the rest of their personal lives. So without further ado, let's jump right in to the choices our favorite doctors had to make last night:

Patient Responsibility

There were two major cases in the episode. First, we met a woman suffering from Alzheimer's who was participating in Derek and Meredith's study trial. With the husband working full-time, her young son Kyle was left to deal with her sickness. It was adorable and heartbreaking all at the same time. (Yeah, I definitely teared up when he sang "Walk the Line" to calm down his mom.) Meredith found a bump on the little boy's neck, which turned out to be a hygroma pushing on his airway. It had to be removed immediately. Making matters worse, Dr. Stark wanted to call child protective services because the parents had failed to take Kyle to a doctor. Fortunately, April finally convinced Dr. Stark to hold off on calling protective services (more on this later). We didn't actually see Kyle's surgery, but I'm assuming he's fine because we didn't hear otherwise. And his mom also had a successful surgery. She was one of the lucky trial patients to receive the active agent. Finally a trail patient who didn't get the placebo! My heart rejoices!. Read More...
