About Me

I'm a lawyer primarily representing clients who are being sued. I am a retired Army Judge Advocate. Nothing I post here, including any comments about legal topics, should be construed as legal advice or creating an attorney-client relationship.

The twins are both home!

Mac was released from the NICU this afternoon. Mom, Dad, and grandmother claim to be able to tell them apart. Iím skeptical.

The tension level is way down. Two more beautiful baby girls the world has never seen.

At-home covid tests.

I got "the word" that the local health department had at-home covid tests to give away and managed to score three boxes with two tests each. I have ordered the tests from the federal government site but these from the health department will be good to have until the federal ones arrive.

There was no public announcement - I just heard the tests were available.

It might be worthwhile to call your local health department and ask.

I need any medics out there to talk me off the ledge.

My newborn granddaughter has been in the NICU for a week. She was placed in the NICU due to early breathing concerns.

She's off O2. She's eating more and weighs more than her twin sister at home. (The pediatrician tells us the child at home is thriving.) The NICU docs will not (or at least have not) talked to the parents in days. The nurses (the only people with whom the parents can speak) keep providing different metrics for her release. The parents are convinced she is being held in the NICU until her calculated due date - in two more weeks. (It's probably a good thing that her G-Dad can't get through the door due to Covid restrictions.)

At some point, laying in an NICU bed instead of being held by her parents and grandparents - especially her G-Dad - has to be bad for her development.

I get it, my degree is in law and not medicine and obviously don't know what I'm talking about. Someone out there who does know, please tell me that everything is fine.

Thank God for DU (& the truck hot spot)

Iíve delivered the DIL to the hospital for the 9:00 feeding in the NICU for the twin still there.

I am not allowed in the hospital due to COVID restrictions. Fortunately, I have a tank of gas and a hot spot in the truck. I can sit and read DU. Itís all good.

It's granddaughters - two of them.

I'm just back from NW Arkansas for the birth of two granddaughters - identical twins.

One is in the NICU (strangely, the larger of the two) but expected to be released soon. The older brother's third birthday is next week. I'm driving back tomorrow after fighting some fires at the office.

Look out world. There are two more little Slicks.
