Unnecessary medical provision? Newborn was born healthy in a hospital. We recieved medical bills from gynae and hospital staff for around $8000. No problem with that.

In : In every hospital i ever worked (or gave birth) in, a pediatrician sees the newborn infants every single day that they are in the hospital. This is considered standard of care since many health issues with a newborn may not become apparent until 2, 3, or even 4 days after birth. Your pediatrician did the right thing seeing your child every day and i'm not sure why your insurance company will not pay. You should call the pediatrician's office and let them know of the problem you are having with the insurance company - they may be able to help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A great luxury...: If grandparents are nearby and can help out, that is a great luxury. Some even move-in to help, but that is not always available or possible. Whenever mom/dad must go away for long periods, it is always difficult, so a helping hand is of tremendous value. Grandparents often help, but it is not their duty/responsibility. So, i suggest asking/talking to them for help with a solution. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it fair to have a psychological evaluation when you are sad and depress? The court ordered psychological evaluation on the parents. One parent who had custody of the child for 16 years temporary loss custody and the child was given to the abusive paren
A : A good court evaluator would take into consideration all aspects of the parental care of the minor child. It is certainly understandable that the circumstances described would create great stress for the custodial parent and could contribute to the mood disorder described. However, if that parent had custody for 16 years, it is reasonable to assume that the child is at least 16 years of age and certainly in many state jurisdictions has a say about which parent he/she wishes to live with. It is not stated why the long term custodial parent lost custody nor what the nature of the alleged abuse might have been. These are the very factors, especially the adolescent's viewpoint that a competent evaluator would be taking into account. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why blood sugar testing kit shows 2 different result if i take the second one right after the first one?
Life is not exact: Lab tests give a number (display a result) that is a close estimate of the real value. That means a drop of blood has a blood sugar level in it, but doing 2 tests on that one drop of blood will display 2, usually different, numbers - each of which is an estimate of the blood sugar level in that one drop of blood. That's basically how lab tests work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When he wakes up : in the morning feeling pretty well, tolerating bananas, rice, applesauce, etc., & having no liquid stool running out of his diaper, take him back to daycare. I'm sure the daycare workers follow universal precautions to attempt to prevent transmission of infectious diseases, but 2-year-olds just don't follow the same precautions.
