Time to move on

There will be no lawsuit over Alex's death. The expert the attorneys consulted wasn't willing to testify on our behalf for a variety of reasons. He is plaintiff oriented, so if he's not willing to help, there is no hope of finding someone who would be willing. As is said about lawyers, doctors protect their own. And despite what several medical professionals have told us in the context of our medical treatment, we would not find many clamoring to testify in a courtroom.

So that is that. I am at peace with it. I never really wanted to sue...I just wanted to know if I should sue. Does that make sense?

Anyway...it's time to move on with our lives and look forward as much as possible.

Onward and upward and all that jazz.

I guess there are no real surprises where the doctors are concerned:( I'm sorry that they have taken such an attitude.

I also hope that you can continue to find peace in this outcome.

(((HUGS))) This must have been a difficult process for all of you. I'm glad you're feeling at peace - I'm so very, very glad for that.

I am not really sure what to say, except that i am glad that you are at peace with this outcome. And i fervently hope that lawsuit or not, Alex's death will change the way that doctor's office works. Because whatever the doctors might say to your face, i am pretty sure they know exactly how much they screwed up. Only it's not them who have to live with it every day.

"Doctors protect their own." That's why the mistakes will continue, and it's sad.
But as long as you're okay...
lots of hugs...

I find that obscene, but you know yourself best. May your peace ever last.
