"nicu" Abby and Neela spend a rotation in the NICU and go through the ups and downs of watching babies premature and sick fight for their young lives. Neela has a hard time dealing with the uncertainty of neonatal care, and the issues dealing with child abandonment. Abby helps a family through the ordeal of losing a child so young, so quickly as a blood infection leads to damaged intestines which leave the baby without the means to grow and thrive. Sandy and Kerry have a baby boy, Kerry kept Sandy's pregnancy a secret all the way through. This episode did its best to show that the NICU is a tough place to practice medicine, it is heartbreaking when babies lose the fight, in spite of efforts to help in treatment. I have to wonder if the writers are doing their best to transition the main lead from Carter to Abby if/when Noah Wyle leaves. It feels that way.
