I think I have to stop watching Drama TV. I will now allow myself to continue to watch Hell's Kitchen (for the next 2 weeks), and The Food Network, and that's about it.

This is because Sunday night I caught up on Grey's Anatomy *spoiler coming*. I'm not much of a cryer, I cry sometimes, but not a ton. Sunday night I cried more then I think I have ever cried in my LIFE!! There was a little girl on Grey's, a 6 year old, with a deadly disease and the doctor's were telling her dad that she wouldn't make it through the night. He was determined to get her to Mexico for a stem cell transplant. I don't blame him, I would have done the same thing, there is no doubt in my mind. But, while she's dying and he's out trying to figure out how to get her to Mexico, Dr. Bailey is being the mommy and holding her and rocking her. Every time the scene would go back to her and the kiddo, I started crying. At the end the dad walks in with news that he found enough money to get her to Mexico, or something like that, I was sobbing too loudly to hear everything, and the little girl looks up at him and says, "Daddy, I'm tired, can we go to Mexico tomorrow." Any control I had left was out the window. SOBBING, loudly...

After the show was over, I got out of bed, walked into the living room where Robert was watching a movie and laid there with him until I could get myself together. I think I freaked him out at first...I couldn't talk I was crying so much...all I could say was TV, and Grey's Anatomy and sad...but man did that show get to me.

Through the entire story all I could think about is one of my kids being in that situation and what would I do. I know that I would have step up and be the strong mommy you are supposed to be in those situations, Robert and I will deal with whatever comes in our path through life and do what we have to to have healthy and happy kiddos. But, I know I would break down just as soon as I was on the other side of the door.

They should have warnings on these shows..."If you are pregnant, have lost a child, or fear losing your children, this might not be the episode you should watch."
