Last night Darren and I settled down to watch some tv. He caught up on some DVR'd episodes and then we watched the new episode of Grey's Anatomy. If you didn't get a chance to see it you can go to the ABC home page and watch the full episode online. I loved it. There was a guest appearance of a heart surgeon that was coming to preform a surgery, the chief told the other doctors to impress her and that she was a little "off".... As soon as she walked up and stuck out her hand, didn't make much eye contact, and rattled off spontaneous facts that most people wouldn't inject in normal conversation....I looked at Darren and said, "She has Aspergers!" We watched the whole episode and right at the end they had her tell another doctor that's what she had. I knew it!! She was definitely an extreme case....but I thought it was GREAT!! All Aspies are somewhere different on the spectrum and I just loved seeing that the syndrome is getting more and more exposure!! The more people hear about it the better the understanding will be. So I just wanted to give a shout out to ABC for writing that in. I also know that Boston Legal has a regular character, Jerry, that has Aspergers also. He is quite funny and even made partner in this past weeks episode (I don't watch this show regularly). It's nice to see really successful images....Helps me remember that there is a light at the end of this tunnel I'm in right now with Hailey and she WILL lead a fulfilled life. Whether she wants to be a heart surgeon, lawyer, or whatever...she'll be great at whatever she puts her mind too!
