Since the birth of Fiona, Andy hadn’t seen much of his daughter or her family. He understood though. She had a new baby as well as the two boys to care for. He was glad that Philip was there to help her this time.
He remembered how Happy Philip had been at the hospital when Fiona was born. Andy couldn’t remember ever seeing the man smile so much. He was definitely a proud daddy.
He knocked on his daughter’s door and smiled when Philip answered. He hugged his son-in-law.
“If you are here to see the baby, Shelby just got her to sleep. You could probably peak in at her if you want though.”
Andy shook his head. “I’d love to see her, but I don’t want to risk waking her. I’m actually here to see how all of you are doing. Haven’t seen much of you lately.”
Philip nodded. “We’ve been staying around the house. The boys go to school. I go to my appointments then come home. Shelby stays home with Fiona. She’s even ordering groceries online and having them delivered. She said her grandfather did that for her when we were still living on base.”
Andy remembered those days. “She was in pretty rough shape for awhile. My dad went and stayed with her for a few days, then the rest of us visited her for about a week.”
Philip was glad she had such a close family. “I remember her telling me about the visits. Thank you all for looking after her when I wasn’t able to.”
Andy wasn’t going to tell him that it was natural instinct to protect his daughter. He was sure that Philip felt the same about his own children.
“How is the lawsuit going?”
“It’s at a bit of a standstill at the moment. We are trying to get our hands on any security video and other documents that we can to help our case.”
Andy listened to Philip explain the roadblocks they were coming up against.
“I’ll do whatever I can to help.”
He saw Philip start to say something. “I won’t do anything illegal. I promise. I don’t want to jeopardize the case for you.”
