Living with Cerebral Palsy: Tiara

Author: Cerebral Palsy Family Network

My name is Mike Gilchrist and i'm Donna Gilchrist It's supposed to be a blessed thing when you have a child and that's what I was looking forward to Even when she was in the Neo-Natal unit. I still think positive because there were a lot of other kids who were preemies my sister so told me Donna maybe you should seek some legal help We wasn't even thinking about law suits We are Christians you know we were our belief is you know you don't sue your brethren. I just wanted to see if something went wrong It wasn't so much this will make life easier because i didn't know what we would go through with her but I had blamed myself for not being aggressive with the doctors or the nurses I was wondering if there was something wrong with me to make my daughter come out like this Then Donna started saying some situation when we went to the hospital The Doctors didn't do this the in time that in time. But I do have peace of mind now because that's their job I used to blame myself but not anymore. By having this settlement it has helped a lot with Tiara's surgeries her doctor visits all the special equipment that she needs. Not so much I'm going to get you for doing this is that we need help with her something was wrong and we needed help raising her. And the money was placed into her special needs trust. And you do need a special needs trust to help take care of her.

Because of the law suit Laurent Community Hospital did make changes. And that's the whole thing. Because of things that happened to Tiara That other children don't have to go through what she went through. It was a hard thing but I'm glad I'm going through this to learn something about myself.

It has made me stronger towards my wife my family. It made me a better person to tell you the truth.
