THE NEOPHYTE LAWYER, DAY 308: TWO HOSPITAL VISITS AND A BABY

THE NEOPHYTE LAWYER, DAY 308: TWO HOSPITAL VISITS AND A BABY

 

It’s been a busy month in the land of the Neophyte Lawyer. In addition to the usual, day-to-day routine of preparing and filing pleadings, notices of intent, applications for hearings, and the other fun parts of a legal practice, there have also been two stays in the hospital. In fact, today (Tuesday, March 20) was my first day back in the office in a week. One hospital was scheduled, one was not. The planned visit was much more enjoyable, in my humble opinion.

 

The unplanned visit to the emergency room was for me. I had an unwelcome visit from a 4 mm kidney stone. For those who have never had a kidney stone, I highly recommend avoiding it if at all possible. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this experience a definite “Not Fun.” When the E.R. doctor found out I was a lawyer, he asked if I sued doctors for medical malpractice. I replied, “Generally not E.R. doctors.” He seemed relieved.

 

The planned hospital stay was much more pleasant and much less painful (for me, at least; my wife may differ). My wife gave birth to the bundle of joy in the picture below, via C-section. Mother and daughter are both home and doing well, although Baby Lily wants to sleep all day and stay up all night. She’ll figure it out eventually, I’m sure.

Now to get caught up on all the work that has piled up in my absence….

    Congratulations! On the baby, not the kidney stone. Those are no fun. I just stumbled across your blog today and it looks great. I read through some of your previous posts on the Rules of Civil Procedure and they were very helpful. I hope you keep blogging once you and your family recover from your two hospital stays.
