A couple of weeks after we took Pearlsky home from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), we went to a high powered lawyers office about a totally different matter. I stayed in her waiting room with Pearlsky and my (then) wife was in with the lawyer. Pearlsky was on the floor in her car carrier most of the time.
There was one other gentleman (assuming I may use that noun for myself) in the waiting room. We did not have any interactions
About a week later the lawyer called my wife. Basically, she said …
There was a gentleman in the waiting room when your husband and daughter were here. He wanted me to pass on the fact that your daughter may have some medical issues and should be under the care of a very competent pediatrician.
We had just taken Pearlsky home from being in the NICU for over a week and having been told she might never leave alive. Duh. My wife was very upset by the call.
I offer this as I am working on another post that will refer to this story and others. Feel free to comment or not.
