Walk in someone else's shoes.

There is a new TV show on that started about 5 weeks ago. Those of you that like medical drama and even those that just like to see what it's like to walk in someone else's shoes, this is the show for you. Boston Med. Thursday nights at 10pm. You can check out their website here.

There have been events such as a police officer shot in the face, two lung transplants, removal of a brain tumor, babies with heart defects, a twelve-year-old hit by a car, an eight-year-old with cardiac complications, several heart problems and none-other-than, heart transplants.

Last week there was a young girl, even younger than me, that underwent a heart transplant surgery. It was incredible to watch. You can watch this episode here.

And just last night there was a man brought in with serious cardiac complications. While the cameras were filming, the doctor went through the process of approving him for a heart transplant. This was a crazy thing to watch. I will tell you that not all stories have a happy ending. It's a reality check. You can watch this episode here.

Don't forget to put a box of kleenex close to you before you start watching.
