as if everything else isn't enough!!!!

As if everything up to this point weren't enough, our family just found out some very disturbing news from our lawyer. The nurse/midwife and the ob/gyn that dealt with my delivery of Damien CURRENTLY have lawsuits against them in the U.S. WTF?!? Why are these people even allowed to speak to me, let alone practice medicine? We are going to pursue this to the very end now. To have our fears validated that Damien shouldn't have died is horrible enough, but to know that these particular people (women no less) have done this to at least one other poor family has me so angry!! How can the military let them keep going? There is no way that the court cases are unknown to the military. I cannot believe that the medical field let this happen. Well, I can believe it because it happened to me, but I don't want to. How can you turn a blind eye to this kind of crap. In my mind this equates to no less than murder. Strong words I know, but the more things get investigated the more disturbing crap gets found. I am so taken aback by this info (which came from our lawyer) that I am not sure how to feel. I am in shock. I am out of tears to cry and can't even feel the anger right now. Hasn't my family been through enough? Dear lord, please give me the strength I need to make sure that no other family is ever hurt by these women again. Please keep my family and me in your prayers. We need the strength of those that care for us.

UPDATE: http://www.news4jax.com/news/5578710...subid=10101101

this is an article about the case that my lawyer handled. the doc mentioned is the one that screwed up my cesaerean. she has already been found guilty enough in one instance to cost the navy one million!!! The nurse/midwife involved (the one who didn't recognize the distress soon enough) has a case currently pending. I think that I have found the purpose in this. I don't believe this is why it happened but I truly believe that it is now my purpose

thanks,

Oh my goodness, I can't imagine the pain and renewed anguish this has brought to you and your family. I am keeping you in my prayers as you struggle to do the right thing, to make sure these women are not EVER allowed to risk lives again. You are so strong to see this through. Please keep us posted.

That is ridiculous and I am so terribly sorry you and your family are having to go through this. I cannot believe they let them continue working. IMO they should be on some sort of paid leave pending the other lawsuit being settled. You are so right, you and yours have been through enough, way more than anyone should have to deal with. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

oh my goodness. Hugs hon. That is completely ridiculous. I am sure it will only help your case though. I cannot believe they are still practicing. So very very sad.
