As many of you ladies know already, we are in a lawsuit over the loss of our precious Damien.
We had to wait six months after filing with the navy before we could file federally.
Our six months is nearly over and our lawyer is moving forward with the case. Well, he contacted me yesterday about some paperwork that he needs. For the federal filing, he needs a copy of the certificate of fetal demise. Here comes the vent.....
I really really hate that term. I hate the word fetus. I know that it is a medical term and technically correct but I still hate it. That was not just a fetus and it was DAMIEN'S DEATH not just some clinical case of fetal demise.
As everyone on this site can attest, that is our baby from the minute we know of their existence.
I just hate the callous and cold and impersonal nature of that term. There could be nothing less personal than the death of my sweet child.
Okay, I am going to step off of my soap box for now.
