Days 4 and 5

I'm really tired from the past two days of court. Today was the first day that I spent being able to watch the entire day of testimonies. I felt so drained at the end of it, and it's only the beginning of Week 2. :( It makes me wonder if I will make it through the entire trial.

But then I think about how Michael had to walk into a courtroom every day for five months for his ordeal--and he was the one who was on trial. I will make it through this.

I really hate not always being able to figure out where the prosecutors and defense are going with some of their questioning. Someone on here mentioned the term "pasta defense" (I think) to describe the defense team's method--throw whatever you can at the wall and hope it sticks. I think that describes them appropriately.

I'm encouraged by the testimony of the medical professionals thus far. They really help to drive home the point that Murray's "treatment" (and I use that word loosely) of Michael was medically inappropriate and horribly inadequate.

I got so frustrated listening to the defense go around and around with Dr. Cooper and Dr. Nguyen. After a while I was wishing that the Drs. would just use "yes" or "no" answers, not because I was annoyed by their responses, but because I had had enough of the defense stumbling around!

I was hoping to start hearing from the girlfriends today, but I guess that will come soon enough.


I watched the Piers Morgan interview tonight. I have to say, that I'm not terribly excited by the whole Cirque thing. I know I'm in the minority. I guess it's because I know it's not something I will be able to attend, and as good as it may be, nothing can substitute for Michael. :depressed:
