I enjoyed last nights show but was a bit bothered by the surgery sequence. It was way too stylized. When you get wheeled into the OR, you've already been fully prepped and have an IV line running with saline and antibiotics. Christina went in looking like she just dropped in for a visit. That might have been handled more realistically. As far as the rest of that plot thread went, it was very accurate and well done. The surgeon's (very well played by Kurt Fuller, one of the best character acters around) post-op consult with the Bravermans was nicely done as well. The real gut wrenching scene was Adam and Christina's not telling Hattie about the Chemo treatments that were on the horizon so that she would head back to school. Again, from my personal experience, this is one of the most difficult aspects of any major medical issue to deal with. There is no right or wrong and how the kid(s) react when they do find out is a real crap shoot. Invariably though, the do find out, usually from someone else in the family and that can lead to to some serious resentment. It's an extremely dicey issue and the show portrayed it well.
On another note, it's nice to see Matt Lauria (Ryan) in this show. He did some very good work in Friday Night Lights and he and Mae Whitman have some nice onscreen chemistry.
