NPH On Grey's!
Yeah!! It was great seeing Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) in a story on Grey's Anatomy last night. It wasn't the major storyline, but they did a good job with it. It would have been more interesting, IMO, if they would have also shown/discussed the programmable shunt--rather than just saying 'shunt'. But we can't have everything--in one episode.
I've been wishing that Shonda Rhimes would use the platform of the show to bring awareness to hydrocephalus, which she has. Derek & Merideth's oldest daughter has hydrocephalus. I love that they show her, when they do, as being a regular kid. They don't depict her as being miserable or 'suffering'.
Looking forward to Saturday!
