My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

Recommended Posts

Legal advice has been sought, we're awaiting the Barrister's (yes, it turns out that the wife actually knows a Barrister, that's handy) opinion on the information she's requested.

 

Apparently the actual technician who did the first scan has since retired and passed away, and the gynecologist has also retired...

 

In a more general sense, I've never understood the resistance of doctors to carry out tests to prove themselves right when they're insisting on something that you (or someone else) is arguing against. Especially when the test is so cheap and routine. Just *do* it, even if you think it's going to be negative, because then you have that result to show the people involved. It's happened multiple times in my experience...

 

I can't fathom why the doctor didn't look at the scan results after they'd been done. Apparently they weren't printed out, but would have been easy to access on the computer. I also don't understand why the technician didn't tell us the result there and then, from what I've gathered it's fairly standard to let people view their pregnancy scan in real time. At 16 weeks we'd have been able to see limbs and movement... So why weren't we shown it?

 

It's just crazy...

Hedge, I've been through a medical negligence investigation and totally understand how you're feeling.

If you persue it, it will take a while, and will be stressful for you both. Frustration will abound and you may not win if they close ranks and cover each others arses and alter records as happened with us.

Not trying to put you off, and I say go for it and attack with full force. Jgot wood, ust giving a heads up. Also to avoid costs, try a no win, no fee firm as I'm guessing your barrister friend may not go all the way for free. I can pass on the firm we used if you want, they were excellent even though they didn't win the case.

Got wood, hope you get sorted too. I've had to live with an ex until the house got sorted. Not fun.

In other news, I secured a local garage for storage, a mere £8 a week so that's nice. I started to move some things into it, in order to tidy the house and get the second bedroom functional.

I found that several items are water damaged and others have mould. The carpet is soaking wet. I suspected a leak from the radiator, but tests showed it was fine.

After the rain this afternoon, I found the floor even further saturated. On investigation, watervus running off the garden, which stupidly slopes towards the house, pooling against the wall (because installing a drainage channel would have been too sensible) and then running in through a literal hole in the wall, about a centimetre wide, between two bricks.

The mould explains why the wife's lungs and allergies have been worse since we moved here. Several boxes of her crafting supplies were ruined, along with soft furnishings and other furniture, most of which is brand new.

I have little hope of getting the world's worst letting agents to cover the damage...

Because it never rains but it pours....

Thanks Shmook.

We have a date in August for her to move on.

She’s said she doesn’t really intend to have a legal battle, she doesn’t have the money to pay for one anyway. Just a case of waiting until the new year and I can file shortly after our first anniversary. That’ll be a fun conversation!

I don't understand why you have to wait?

I don't think you can divorce within the first year of marriage.

You can have it annulled, but that's if it hasn't been consummated. I think.

I had an amusing conversation with a friend on his wedding night re. consummation.  He had to briefly disappear for some reason and someone in the group joked it was related to consummation and everyone laughed except for him.  He had apparently never heard of the concept of consummation before somehow, despite him being in his mid 20s or so.  He just stood there with a puzzled look on his face whist everyone else, including his mum, aunts and uncles etc found it hilarious.  We eventually explained it to him.

So the coolest red dot sights are currently available only on AliExpress. Certainly nowhere near my location.

ACRO with a low RIS mount would look pretty cool on my heavily modded NotGlock, being a fairly close match for the Kang Tao smart SMG from Cyberpunk 2077, and I want a MH1 for the Tavor I managed to obtain.

Just on autopilot every day and I just want to be turned off permanently.  Despite my state getting swept up in the mess my work is considered "essential" so I will be worked until I get infected in the end.  Been on mandatory overtime for months now and I never see the sun now or do anything when I get home.  Cannot find satisfaction in anything anymore.  Last game day I had last month I just ended up leaving early out of frustration.  Latest project of restoring an old tm p90 as an early bday present is down the drain currently due to M Trigger unit I eagerly waited for not functioning properly with either cutoff lever that I have, and in the end I just burned too much money on it all.

My folks are getting worse by the day and I just do not want to spend the next 20-40 years watching them degrade alongside the house and everything else around me as I myself am already slipping down the slope.  I just want out.
