Been a while..

I know I haven't been on here in a while. Life has been incredibly hectic. Quite a bit has happened in the past month or so.

We are still waiting for the actual adjudicatory hearing, but it is officially scheduled to begin on sept 21. We'll see if that day gets postponed once again. Ugh. I did find an expert to testify for me. He is a highly respected pediatric neurologist. He wrote a report based on his review of the medical records. He described evil dr. Petrak's report as "embellished and exaggerated,". He also said that the amount of blood in her brain was minimal and clinically insignificant. He said it was a subacute or chronic bleed that could absolutely be the result of birth trauma. He went on to say that some of the allegations "boarders on absurdity". His final sentence in the report was, "it is for the above reasons that I believe the allegations authored by Dr Petrak is incorrect and unsubstantiated.".

So, we'll see where this takes us. On a brighter note, I now have unsupervised visits w her every sat and sun all day. Today, we are off to go shopping and visit my sister. Thank you to everyone who has never stopped believing me and supporting me.

  1. I've been following your blog, and was worried about the lack of posts since the last one. I'm so glad things are moving forward, and that you have unsupervised visits now. I will continue to pray that you get her back home soon.

  2. Thank you. I actually thought I updated this a few weeks ago. I truly meant to. I'm exhausted with it all, but am managing.

  3. That's awesome that you have unsupervised visits with her now so you can take her places and to see people! Congrats! And good luck on the next steps!
