Gift of Life

  • Jan 19, 2010

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. I heard this for the first time when I was a mere teenager. But, I experienced it many times in life, & the last one, just yesterday.

I wrote about my friend who had a surgery in the hospital before Christmas for cancer. Now, it was the first time I actually visited a hospital in Hong Kong for anything other than a friend giving birth to a baby. So, I have been lucky in that sense.

Now, I didn't think much about these soaps, be it Korean dramas or American ones. I picked them out the way I do my reviews, no plans, just on the spur of the moment, I do what needs to be done and whatever that inspires me that very day. Interesting enough, I have often been able to be where I need to be and see what I need to see.

Back to Grey's Anatomy Season 6, I saw this at the DVD store quite a few weeks back. Although I was there to pick out other movies and dramas (even Desperate Housewife!) I didn't pick this one out. For some reason, my hands reached out for it 2 days ago (& that's not registering the fact it's a drama to do with hospitals, but hey, my subconscious was working even if my conscious brain isn't ;-)). And miraculously, it's only after the last few weeks of hospital visits do I actually know how to appreciate this drama fully. Interesting, don't you think?

Even more so when the drama opens with a patient suffering from cancer, another one having an inoperable tumor and yet recovered from a lengthy operation (we are talking about over 10 hours). Now I hear ya, God :-)

Ok, don't go cynical on me. I know what I am talking about. I've had intuitions from the past which had been uncanny (& I mean it had been proven from 9/11, some earthquakes, plane crash, etc...) & I don't question them or try to prove them. I live with them. Like I'm now living with all these so called coincidences or telepathy.

Enough blabbling... Grey's Anatomy.
I'm halfway through it now, episode 8. I like it so far. It is the first time I'm actually catching this series so I have no idea what came before. However, I don't like the look of injuries and accidents and having one's arm detached due to a boat accident!!! Yuck! That's morbid!!! Victims survive while some died for no reasons. Some because of a careless mistake by doctors. Of course, the doctor concerned got fired but this drama allows me to appreciate how tough it is to work in the hospital and that I've never quite give much thought to the surgeons and doctors! Part of the reason, of course, is that I hardly visit hospital. That's a good thing naturally. On the other hand, through the drama, I was able to appreciate how lucky it is just being healthy and normal! We all forget that for most part, don't we?

Yes, I do like this season of Grey's Anatomy. Not only does it deal with relationships, financial constraints, life & death, it also focuses on the fact that we are all humans and we can't play God with life and death. The hospital does what it does well and the doctors attempt to do their best. Ultimately, let it go and live it well! Doctors or patients. That's life & part of being alive :-)

Note: If you've the time and inclination to do so, you will be able to watch Grey's Anatomy Season 6 on Abc.go.com.

I'm enjoying 1st few episodes right now on DVDs. It's morbid (the patients' injuries), comical (script) & touching. Refreshing!
