Did anyone see the ER episode?

I started to watch the show but as soon as I saw that they were heading to the NICU I had to switch it.

This past Thursday the episode on ER focused totally on the NICU. It was good, but it seemed like the youngest preemie was a 35 weeker. I was hoping for a preeclamptic mom or at least a preemie that was smaller. It was still pretty interesting though...
