So the one episode of Grey's dealt with some patient who had an unexploded RPG in his body. You heard. A Rocket. Propelled. Grenade. A huge freaking piece of metal and gunpowder just waiting to explode. Live round of ammunition. The OR was evacuated, people were afraid the guy would accidentally move and blow up, and lots of interns cried. And had sex in supply closets. And then cried again.
I remember thinking it was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen, and there is just no way something that outrageous could happen in real life.
And then I read the news today.
Headline? US Doctor takes live ammo from soldier's head. Well, color me corrected.
But as [Lt. Terreri] reviewed a CAT scan of the soldier, he realized it was a much bigger problem, according to an Air Force news release this week on the case.
You win, Grey's Anatomy. You win.
He immediately went to inform neurosurgeon Maj. John Bini, also of Lackland. Bini had the operating room evacuated; the surrounding hallways were secured, and he and anaesthesiologist
Maj. Jeffrey Rengel, put on body armor for the surgery.
Bini and Rengel were joined in the operating room by a member of a bomb disposal team. And after Bini removed the round from the patient's head, the bomb technicians took it away.
But on principle, I still don't think I'll ever watch you again.
