When I was in second grade, this girl Missy could cross her legs behind her head like a pretzel. And one day, her leg just popped and then it was lying there, behind her. My mother said, "Stop crying. It was just an anterior hip dislocation." Then she said something I've never forgotten: "Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should." Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. It's the kind of advice a mother gives a kid. But as my mother would be the first to tell you, she never followed it. It got her in a lot of trouble. It also won her awards. That's how records are broken, how moons are stepped on, diseases are cured, by people who are willing to try. We call these people innovators. Fearless. Genius. We call them reckless. Thoughtless. Dangerous. It's hard to know which one we are. It's hard to know if what we're doing is just crazy or if it's going to change everything.

And Dream of Sheep is the seventeenth episode of the fifteenth season and the 334th overall episode of Grey's Anatomy.

Medical NotesEdit

Rick BurnsEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Burns
  • Treatment:
    • Fish skin grafting

Rick had burns over large portions of his body. Jackson used Tilapia skin to graft his burns so they could heal.

Mr. HallEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Fractured clavicle
    • Distal humerus fracture
  • Treatment:
    • Casting

Mr. Hall had a fractured clavicle and stable vitals after a rollover car accident. In the ER, they also discovered a distal humerus fracture. His injuries were treated in the ER.

Elizabeth HallEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Pregnancy
    • Uterine bleed
  • Treatment:
    • Embolization
    • Hysterectomy

Lizzie, 22, was five months pregnant when she was in a car accident in which the car rolled over. In the ER, Teddy learned that she was pregnant and ordered an ultrasound. The fetal heart rate was good, but she had bleeding in her abdomen, so Teddy worried she'd have to perform a hysterectomy. The right uterine artery was the source of the bleed, so Teddy embolized it, continuing the pregnancy, but she worried about a re-bleed. Later, she started bleeding again and Teddy warned that she'd have to remove her uterus if they couldn't stop the bleeding another way. However, before they could do the surgery, Vincenzo DeLuca interjected, telling Lizzie and her husband that he could save their baby with his sac. That was quickly corrected and the surgery went forward. Carina delivered the baby and then Teddy removed her uterus.

Baby HallEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Prematurity
  • Treatment:
    • Comfort care

Baby Hall was delivered at 21 weeks. After her birth, she was wrapped in a blanket and given to her father, who held her while she died.
