5 Years Ago

Ask me what happened 5 days ago? I don't know. 5 hours ago? Not the foggiest. But 5 years ago I was in the hospital, and surprisingly I remember a lot of details from that time. Thanks to my sister Beth, I have a whole scrapbook of pictures too. I love it! Thanks Beth! These are pictures from my hospital stay.

It's hard to believe that it has been 5 years already! It was a time that my biggest worries were what should I order for my meals (I had the whole menu memorized and had my favorite days and then on the weekends I would treat myself to hamburgers, french fries and shakes), what time I would shower, what visitors were coming and what time. And as you see above I always looked forward to someone coming that would wheel me outside to enjoy my Dr. approved 1/2 hour outside in the beautiful sunshine.

I still remember the feeling of my babies moving all over in my stomach and certain parts would move as one child moved and not another. A very wierd feeling that is very hard to explain.

I would get so sick of sitting around and not being able to do things myself. Why? I'm not really sure. I'd give anything to have a day of nothing planned and people making my meals. Hey, I'd give anything for a day of being able to sit down at all my meals and actually eat them in peace.

Also, why did everyone around me have to lose weight when I was gaining it? Look at my mom and Brad! So skinny!!!!
