The Professor

Found out my DS has gotten a part in the 4th grade school play! Exciting? Yes. Scary? Yes. If you know him, you know for years he couldn't look anyone in the eye while they talked to him, he rarely did the talking! I used to warn teachers that if you raised your voice the least little bit, he'd be reduced to tears, like mother like son. He was so shy, up until lately. He let me know that in kids church he gets up on stage!!! WHAT??? He looks forward to it! This morning he said, "I'll probably have to be up on stage again" rolling his eyes like it was going to be a real chore! Deep down I could see he was hoping that was the case! So, he got the part of Professor John Spiritus Baptismo. He has 6 pages of lines. It is a musical, "The School of Life", a High School Musical of sorts, though one with a message! I will work with him on lines but I'd appreciate prayer from now until showtime, April 24th. He's thinking how cool it'll be, but being on that stage with an auditorium of parents staring at you is a different story! I'll be a nervous wreck for him that night! I'm going to do my best and see he's prepared! Thanks! I'll record this momentous event for sure and share here later!

Rainy days...& ER

These kinds of days make me catch up on all things DVR'ed. It is cold and rainy out, all my laundry is cought up and my house is pretty clean, so I'm camped out by the fire watching things I have recorded! I love the regular shows like Grey's (finally with a new epi), and Survivor, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars... but my favorite for years is ER, and I am sad, so sad that this is the last year...I have watched from the beginning. The beginning being 1994, I was not a Mom yet and still in the working world! Different days! Here are a few of my favorite ER moments: Season 1 starts out as your typical medical drama with a great looking cast. They are building relationships and helping us get to know the doctors.

Do you see how young they all look?? My favorites at the beginning were of course John Carter (Noah Wylie) and Doug Ross (George Clooney). I liked Dr. Benton, but his character was a bit of a jerk, though we grew to love him. Dr. Mark Greene was awesome in a sweet, goofy way, we all knew him from Top Gun (Goose).

Some memorable highlights from ER through the years:
  • a crazy patient takes over the ER and kills and intern (Lucy; played by Kellie Martin) and almost Dr. Carter. Season 5.

  • Luka Kovac joins the cast... ooh la la... played by Goran Visnjic. Love me some Luka! Season 6.

  • Carter and Abby get involved in drugs and alcohol struggles. Season 7.
  • Dr. Greene gets married and discovers he has a brain tumor. Season 7.
  • Dr. Greg Pratt played by the hunky Mekhi Phifer joins the cast. and the worst part of this season was losing Dr. Greene! :( Season 8

  • Some of the cast, Carter, Pratt and Kem (Carters' wife) go to Darfur, really heartbreaking shows. Season 9

  • One of the most memorable episodes of Season 10 was when Dr. Romano gets killed by a helicopter falling off the roof and ont him in the ambulance bay! He was a jerk, so no one really cared, except the special effects were awesome!!

  • Dr. Carter and wife finally have a baby only for it to be stillborn. Really sad shows in Season 11.
  • Then.... my man... John Stamos joins the cast as Dr. Tony gates!! Season 12 but Gallant dies in Iraq.

  • Season 13 - Sam and her son get kidnapped by her ex and Sam ends up killing him when he's asleep. Abby and Luka have a baby, Joe.

  • Dr. Moretti (Stanley Tucci) joins the cast, but doesn't last long... I liked his character! Season 14

  • Dr Pratt dies in an explosion in the ambulance bay. Hated to see him go. Season 15.

Now to Thursday night, John Carter showed up a few weeks ago and we discovered he needs a kidney transplant. He is admitted to Northwestern where Dr. Benton works, so we get to see him for the first time in 7 years. Then forward to the hospital where Neela and Sam are retrieiving organs, and there are Doug and Carol! They have been married and working in a hospital in Seattle (wonder if they know McDreamy?) since 2000. I read on the official ER site that they ordered 3 more episodes and it will make the FINAL show ever of ER to air on April 2nd. WAAAHHH!! Thank goodness I have plenty of shows to watch on Thursday night, but I will really miss ER.
