CAN'T WAIT!!

I am so excited for Thursday night. I know I am probably the only ER fan left on the planet. It's OK. I also admit that ER is no longer what it used to be. It is time for it to end. Sad but true. But, I LOVED this show. It has been a good Thursday night friend for the last 14 years (I didn't watch season 1). Thanks to my friend Leah - I got hooked back in our Provo days at Raintree. We used to put in our VHS tape on Thursday nights. When we had all our homework done then we could turn on ER.

Kenyon is probably happier than anyone that this show is ending. He has had to endure it for the past 11 years. He is sick of it. There have been too many episodes where he has to give me the "This isn't real" speech. I know it isn't but it kind of seems real. And I have shed a few tears. I'll admit it. He only has 3 more hours to endure - and probably he will just work anyway.

Didn't you just love that original cast of ER?

PS - Kenyon continues to make small improvements. At least it isn't steps backward. He is trying to get back some strength. Slowly increasing his diet. The funny thing (but not really funny) is that he can't tell if his food is hot. Everything seems cold to him. Isn't that strange? He can see the steam coming off the food and it still feels cold. Plus, his taste is kind of messed up which makes eating less enjoyable. The biopsy results all looked good - no detectable signs of leukemia. So hopefully we can keep this GVHD under control and we will make it out of this ordeal.

Glad to hear about Kenyon's update. That is strange about the food thing- I would hate for everything to taste cold. Blech.. Bless his heart.

I'm with ya on ER. I had no idea that it was still airing! Yes, back in 1996, 1997, 98,99... those were the ripe ol' days of ER. That original cast was superior.

I'm so glad Kenyon is doing better!And gees, as far as the ER thing, that used to be my fav show ever! And I don't think I have watched it in 3 or 4 years....I converted over to "Houseism" and "Scrubism" for my dr shows! :) Great show thow! Sad to see it end!

I am not a fan of ER either but will feel sad for you:( Just think you have 15 seasons, you can start all over!!

I am so happy that Kenyon is feeling better, you continue to be in our prayers.

I don't think I've ever seen an entire episode. Can't comment. 24 is my show.

Glad to see that I've had such a lasting impact on your life. ha! I did see a few tidbits on the Today show about ER's final episode and it made me think back to our BYU days as well. Ah Dr. Green. Miss that guy.

I went through an ER stage when I nursed my first kid. I watched the middle of the night reruns. I also went through my 90210 stage at that time as well...:) Have fun watching! Oh, and aren't you a Lost fan, too? It's really the only show I watch anymore, but I am totally hooked. This season is so good.
