I can move on from the whole cars going into a different direction thing (very possibe Summer killed Adrienne/the Baby OR Maggie was so drunk she popped a U Turn.) Here’s what REALLY makes me giggle… Vic’s whole plan hinges on Maggie NOT remembering anything. You gotta be HOT MESS DRUNK for that to happen. But okay!
So I think Adrienne needed to die to play this SL out (no loss of a character for me – tho I like Judi but Adrienne has done very little in Salem.) This has set up a great SL for Will & Sonny (an otherwise boring couple.)
Kristen needed to "mourn" and separate her from Brady. What i do NOT get, however, is what the whole reason for the Sarah baby paternity SL was if the baby was just gonna die? Now we’ll get this whole reveal about Eric being kept in the dark about being a father for a baby that’s dead. But I guess that’s better than a whole 6-7 months of Sarah almost getting caught and holding her belly. But how did Vic pull off the switch. The doc knew that was Sarah’s baby. Did she get paid off? And how did Sarah NOT know that wasn’t her kid? LOL
Kristen killing Haley was a cool reveal as well.January 24, 2020 at 3:25 pm #56825
I believe 100% that Victor paid off the doctor. It only makes sense since the doctor never went to see Sarah or Kristin to tell either one that their baby died. She was MIA. My bigger question is Brady and Kristin took a photo with their baby, how did no one notice that Sarah’s baby looked just like their baby? I’m really having to work hard at suspending my disbelief with this storyline.January 24, 2020 at 5:04 pm #56826dvalParticipant
that they brought in to Sarah was way chubbier than the one she sent out. They must have fed her well in the NICU.January 24, 2020 at 10:05 pm #56828powerpaw2Participant
So it appears Haley was a nurse who did it all. I thought there were specific nurses who worked in the maternity ward. Haley’s been all over the map. I still don’t like that she’s gone as I liked the actress. Kind of dumb that Kristin blamed her, but I know, da plot.January 25, 2020 at 2:45 am #56829PattiParticipant
to just swallow and say "thank you". Bull—-!!!! That whole thing was a mess. I’m caught up so far because I have On Demand, but too much death, misery actions that would never ever occur, especially in maternity, and who just walks into the baby viewing area instead of through the viewing glass. Good God Almighty. Newborns being left unattended, no ID bracelets, no doctors immediately coming in to speak to parents, blah, blah, blah …. and don’t even get me started on Victor and Xander and poor alcoholic Maggie commits vehicular manslaughter of her own grandchild no less, all still being emitted from Carlivati’s poison pen. Too bad!January 25, 2020 at 3:22 pm #56830TFlo1018Participant
I LOVE the idea of Maggie doing it (even tho it probably will turn out Summer did it.)
Maggie was an alcholic – and recently fell off the wagon so her doing that again works since it recently happened. Her murdering Adrienne and the baby is fantastic story telling (it doesnt ALWAYS have to be the bad guy who commits the crimes.) And her addicition ties nicely into it. Plus Maggie is WAYYYY too holier than thou. The problem w/the SL is the logistics (as per usual w/Soaps.)
I don’t mind Carlivati honestly. Some of the SL are "silly" but I find DOOL better than it’s been in a bit. I love Princess Gina (I’m in the minority I know) and the time jump – probably the smartest thing DOOL has done in a while. I can do w/out Steve as Stefano though – but whatevs…
I loved James Reilly storytelling too – while I know a lot of people did not. The thing is – James got people talking just like Ron does (good or bad – people are watching and talking.)January 25, 2020 at 3:28 pm #56831
I thought Haley was an ER nurse, but there she was in Labor and Delivery. Same with Kayla flitting around between surgery, the morgue, and the maternity ward. What the heck?January 25, 2020 at 3:36 pm #56832
I’m no fan of Princess Gina or James Reilly, but I have enjoyed the time jump and I did like this week of explanation. However, what a horrible Mothers Day for these people! I do look forward to the story unfolding, especially now that we know Will did not cause the accident.
I am 100% irritated with the whole baby thing, although it will probably play out well and I wonder what happens to Sarah and Xander when it all comes out. My youngest child is 15 and none of my kids were ever put in the "nursery." Most hospitals keep babies with mom in the room and mom, dad, and baby all have matching bracelets so baby swaps don’t happen. Salem needs to evolve with the times. (This is my own irritation with the storyline.)
Now that we all caught up, I’m looking forward to how it plays out. I do agree with Patti that I’m sad they killed off Haley. Like what was the purpose of that? Since we know Rolf was lurking during this time maybe in a few years Haley and Adrienne will come back to life.January 25, 2020 at 3:39 pm #56833bluebonnetParticipant
The logistics, as you say, TFlo, have always been an issue with Days, as it has with some of the other soaps, but all in all, I’m finding that I’m looking forward to the show every day. The SLs are convoluted, but that keeps us guessing and makes it more interesting.January 25, 2020 at 4:46 pm #56834PattiParticipant
nurses’ scheduled shifts change, but the department they work in doesn’t. I believe if you are a maternity nurse, you work in maternity; if you are an ER nurse, your job is in the ER. Your shift may change from day to day, but your job does not. At least that’s how it is in any hospital I’ve been in. In 2017 I was hospitalized at Johns Hopkins for 2 weeks straight; the first week in MICU (Medical Intensive Care Unit); the second week in CCU (Critical Care Unit. At no time did I see a nurse in the CCU that I had in the MICU, or vice versa. That’s how the real world works, Mr. Carlivati!January 26, 2020 at 8:59 pm #56838DeeLanParticipant
I’m a Registered Respiratory Therapist and while we worked in all areas of the hospital the nurses did not. They were specialized like doctors where in the ER they had to learn to triage and be the doctor’s eyes and ears when a patient first comes in. In the Critical Care Units (we had 3, SICU: Surgical Intensive Care, MICU: Medical Intensive Care and CICU: Cardiac Intensive Care) and you might have seen a nurse working in another unit to help out they each had their own unith they reported to. NICU is VERY specialized and they don’t work other areas on the same day due to the transference of germs. Maternity had L&D as well as the post partum floor, they rarely moved around then there’s the nursery which is hardly ever used anymore. Thpse nurses could do the post partum and work in the NICU if they were understaffed.January 26, 2020 at 11:04 pm #56839midwifemamaParticipant
As a nurse , I totally agree that nursing now-a-days is highly specialized, not like 50 years ago when there were still a few small "cottage" hospitals around with only a few beds and the nurse covered everywhere and sick patients would be sent out to a tertiary care hospital. And if you have a nursery and you are bringing the baby in for a PKU or an exam. you would never leave the babies alone in there! And wasn’t that the WORSE Neonatal Resuscitation!
