PDF | On Jan 1, , Campbell Jones and others published Handle with care. You're the best thing that I've ever found;. Cadd9 D G (N.C) handle me with care. D Cadd9 G. / D Cadd9 G. /. Reputations changeable, situations tolerable. Handle With Care (Jodi Picoult, ) explores the knotty tangle of medical ethics and personal morality in the case of a disabled child and her mother's attempt.

You said you needed my help.

How am I going to run a company with this dickhead on staff? How is that fair? Amalie had cold feet and made me out to look like the bad guy. Armstrong clears his throat and tugs at his collar. I will not stand by and let this happen! I lean back in my chair and lace my fingers behind my neck. Amelia, furious, states in court as a witness that Charlotte told Willow that she would never wish that Willow had never been born.

Charlotte admits later on that they should have discussed the treatment center as a family before she and Sean made that kind of decision. Marin Gates: The lawyer handling the O'Keefes' case, although she is privately opposed to it.

She is adopted and searching for her birth mother, who she eventually discovers by chance on the jury for Charlotte's case. However, her mother tells her that Marin's father was a rapist and makes it clear she doesn't want to know her daughter.

Marin accepts this and becomes closer to her adoptive parents. Piper Reece: Charlotte's best friend and obstetrician, as well as the godmother to Willow. She is a competent doctor, although she takes an extended break from work during the lawsuit. She brings to Sean's attention Amelia's bulimia and self-injury.

Rob Reece: Piper's husband. He is an orthodontist who works on many of the people in Bankton, including Amelia. His older brother, Stephen, committed suicide at the age of seventeen; the then-twelve-year-old Rob was the one to discover his body.

Handle With Care

Although the lawsuit initially causes strain in Rob and Piper's marriage, Rob ultimately agrees to support his wife. Emma Reece: the daughter of Rob and Piper. She met Amelia through skating and became her best friend; however, she quickly casts Amelia aside after Charlotte sues Piper, and the two never reconcile.

When she finds out about the lawsuit she made sure everyone at school alienated Amelia. She was the first one to notice Amelia's self-injury. The lawyer smiled sympathetically at her. When I entered the conference room again, Charlotte was still talking. Geriatric pregnancy.

I was worried about having a Down syndrome child — I never had even heard of OI. I thought it was an unnecessary risk, since there was a slight chance of miscarriage. The way I saw it, no matter what, we were going to have that baby and love that baby. So what could the amnio results tell us that would make any difference at all? Look, are we about done here? Ramirez and his associate exchanged a glance. Or, alternately, we might wind up with the biggest wrongful birth payout in New Hampshire.

Depends on what her medical records turn up. For the defense, it becomes a morality question: who has the right to decide what kind of life is too limited to be worth living? Many states had banned wrongful birth suits. In New Hampshire, a parent was responsible for the care of a disabled child their whole life — not just till age eighteen — which was as good a reason as any to seek damages. To put it bluntly: she was cute and bright and articulate — and therefore a much tougher hardship case to sell to a jury.

But if we were asked to defend a client who was a neo-Nazi in a criminal suit, could you do your job — even if you found his beliefs disgusting? Charlotte winced. In the shape of skates. From scratch. The rest of the moms already blacklisted me because I missed the spring show for a medical conference.

While you were stitching an episiotomy? After being on call for thirty-six hours? You could bake circles around --what on earth are you doing? Not for a long time.

Are you okay? Just then the older girls clattered down the stairs.

See a Problem?

The idea was just the germ of a seed, carried home in the hollow beneath my breastbone when we left the law offices. Even when I was lying awake next to Sean, I heard it as a drumbeat in my blood: what if, what if, what if.

For four years now I had loved you, hovered over you, held you when you had a break. I had gotten exactly what I so desperately wished for: a beautiful baby. So how could I admit to anyone — much less myself — that you were not only the most wonderful thing that had ever happened to me…you were also the most exhausting, the most overwhelming? They wanted to just run something by us. This time, Amelia was in school, but we still had to bring you. And this time, they were ready: beside the coffee machine were juice packs; next to the glossy architectural magazines were a small stack of picture books.

When the secretary brought us back to meet the lawyers, we were not led to the conference room. Instead she opened the door to an office that was a hundred different shades of white: from the pickled wood floor to the creamy wall paneling to the pair of pale leather sofas.

You craned your neck, taking this all in. Was it supposed to look like Heaven? And if so, what did that make Robert Ramirez?

Does the name Marcus Cavendish ring a bell? Cavendish is Scottish.

And according to him, it appears that you have a good cause of action of medical malpractice against your obstetrician. She should have been able to recognize that your baby was suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta back then, long before the next ultrasound, where the broken bones were visible.

Handle With Care

The implication is that if your provider had told you earlier on that your baby was going to be impaired, you would have had choices and options as to whether or not to continue with the pregnancy. That gorgeous, creamy leather; it would be ruined. I realized that both lawyers were staring at me, and I rocked back on my heels. In a stainless steel bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar, and cornstarch. Temper yolk mixture with milk.

Put milk and yolk mixture back on the heat, whisking constantly. When mixture starts to thicken, whisk faster until it boils, and then remove from heat.

Add vanilla and pour into a stainless steel bowl. Put in fridge and chill before serving. Whisk the egg yolks with 3 oz of sugar in large mixing bowl; whisk in flour and raspberry puree, and return mixture to heavy saucepan. Cook over medium low heat, stirring constantly, until the custard is thick. Do not allow it to boil.

Remove from heat, and stir in chocolate until completely melted. Mix in liqueur. Cover the base mixture with plastic to prevent a skin from forming.

Meanwhile, butter six ramekins and dust with sugar. Preheat the oven to Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks with the remaining 1 oz. And here is the part where you will see it: the coming together of two very different mixtures, as you fold the egg whites into the chocolate. Neither one will be willing to give up its substance: the darkness of the chocolate will become part of the foam of the egg whites, and vice versa. Bake immediately. Pulse until coarse.Because of all these things, we did not leave Florida immediately.

There Amelia goes, being difficult again. This article's lead section does not adequately summarize key points of its contents.
