The Drs: Bobbi Kristina Brown
The Doctors shared that in January 2015, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina, was found face down in a bathtub. The Doctors wanted to focus on the idea of what it means to be in a medically induced coma. They explained that they’re used quite often, whether it’s after trauma, a heart attack, or something else.
The Drs: Medically Induced Comas
The idea is to allow recovery while not stressing the body or the mind. No two comas are alike, whether medically induced or not. Dr Rachael Ross said as a loved one, having to decide when it’s time to turn off life support is incredibly difficult. She said she always tells her patients to tell the person that you love them, that it’s going to be okay, and it’s time to go to end their suffering and move on. She was brought to tears talking about how she had to do that for her sister.
Dr Drew Ordon said there’s a chance that the patient could come out of the coma, but when it comes to swelling, the coma can help control the swelling and prevent it from getting worse.
The Drs: Fifty Shades Of Grey Release
The Doctors wanted to make a massive turnaround and talk instead about Valentine’s Day and the release of Fifty Shades of Grey. They played the trailer and then shared that Dr Ross is their official Fifty Shades aficionado because she read all the books.
Dr Travis Stork said he hasn’t read the books, and Dr Ross said everyone talks about the steamy stuff, but really it’s a love story. Dr Ross explained that the woman is a regular girl next door, and she meets a hot rich guy who “wants to push the boundaries a little bit.”
Dr Ordon then pulled out a tray of Fifty Shades products. Dr Ross said parents should use the movie and the products to have an opportunity to have a conversation with your kids about what’s really going on and having a healthy relationship.
The Drs: Fifty Shades Of Grey Controversy
Dr Stork said there’s a social media campaign that says the movie makes violence attractive. The archbishop of Cincinnati is calling it direct assault on Christian marriage. Dr Ross said maybe it’s because the two of them aren’t married and the couple pushes some boundaries. Dr Stork said everyone should remember it’s a movie and the book was written as fiction.
