That is amazing! The attorney really dropped the ball, but that really isnt going to shed a bad light on you since you have made contact with a really nice judge!!!
I wouldnt worry to much as it seems the judge is sympathetic to your situation. Just make sure your attorney does what he needs to do, and when you get into court remember to address all your answers to the judge no matter who asked the question.
Dress comfortable, but not like your goin to a job interview. I dressed in jeans and a tshirt, what I wear most everday. I did show them I had my shoes in a double knot so the laces wouldnt come undone, and I could slip them off and on with a minimum of effort.
I know it is very difficult to keep a positive attitude, or even just feel normal at all after living so long in the pits, and in terrible pain. I was nearly ready to call it quits this last time, but glad I went cause it was the victory lap! Keep your chin up, and dont let those worries get to you too much.
I will be prayin for ya
Oh and bring your husband, or someone along with you. Just maybe they will call them in to tell how it has effected them, and what impact they see on your life. At least you know the judge is nice, that is waaay more than alot of us knew before going in.
