The 2nd lawyer called today after reviewing the records. She said that the records were organized very neatly. The only thing that they said was missing was the record of where they record the station of the baby while pushing. Apparently she said in some place of the records that it said they saw some hair from the baby. I was never told she came down that far!!! I don't understand that. Well she said that from what I said the records match up with it. As far as if they got her out in time. She said that they did. She said that she could sent the medical records to a obstatrtion (sp) and they could review them, but I would have to pay out of my own pocket and she said it would just just under $1000bucks!!! Like I or my family have the kind of money. She said that the client has to pay for that when the lawyer doesn't feel like there isn't a solid case.

Then she said that New Hamphire is the most difficult state to bring a medical malpractice case. She said that %100 of the time the doctors win. That's pretty messed up if you ask me!!!

So now I don't think we will bother with doing another lawyer. They will just say the same thing, i'm sure. I just don't understand. We thought it had to be an open and shut case. I just feel like the doctor is getting away with taking my baby from me.

I'm going to get my records back and have my doctor review them so that I can be reasured that this won't happen to me again. That's my biggest fear.

I am so sorry Melissa, it certainly seems to be more of a "geographical innocence" than an actual statement that the Dr's did nothing wrong.

I don't know what to say I really thought you could teach that Dr not to mess around and play God with babies lives. In a sane world that would happen, unfortunatly we don't live in a sane world.
