It Could Kill Your Baby
I know you probably think I’m about to say something to follow that up to be clever and hilarious like I usually am, but today I read about this disease that kills babies, and it’s pretty scary. It’s called Kernicterus, and it’s basically brain damage caused by untreated jaundice in newborns. Normally, this isn’t a problem, but if your baby turns yellow you should definitely get it checked out by your health care provider.
You can read up on kernicterus treament and causes at www.kernicteruslaw.com – a pretty thorough website about the disease. There is also a pretty good deal of information on what your options are if you feel like your medical practitioner missed the diagnosis and you want to take legal action. As someone who’s dealt with a lot of doctors in life, I’d recommend you wait until after you’ve grieved a significant amount of time before you decide to take action. There are a lot of frivolous lawsuits going around these days, and it’d be better if you dealt with it with a clear head. If your baby is yellow, get it checked out before it’s too late.
