Ten Years Ago Today...
mommy left school unexpectedly. she brought her kids to the bathroom and never returned. she left in such a hurry, she had to borrow her friend, michele's (i call her 'shelly', mom says i can) car. she called daddy on the way, her phone was going dead, so all she could really tell him was to meet her at the emergency room.
mom and dad were scared. i still was supposed to cook for seven more weeks, but i was sick of those cramped quarters. in the ER, they hooked mom up to a bunch of machines, and i got to be on TV! the first, of several times, over the course of the next 48 hours.
the doctors told mommy and daddy that i was fine, but i needed to stay in mom's tummy as long as possible. they sent my parents home, and told mom to see her doctor the next day.
mom had no idea what the next day had in store for her.
