Why'd you have to ask? I been sickly type all my life.
- Got my armed burned by hot rice when I was about 5 years old. (I was sitting on the kitchen floor...)
-Would have fevers and bellyaches that would cause the doctors to hospitalize me. (Never did find out what was wrong.)
-Swallowed a jack when I was about 9 years old. (My sister was beating me at playing the game). I thought I'd be funny and throw all the jacks into my mouth. Well, one went down and got stuck in my throat. Oops! You should of seen the x-ray!)
-Two pregnancy were c-sections. (The twins were considered high-risk, so I had to go to the doctor A LOT.)
-Kidney stone removal with stent placement. (That stent resembles a long clothes hanger wire!)
-Thyroidectomy, developed a serotoma/hematoma that was crushing my windpipe. The surgeon came to the bedside, ripped out the stitches, and rushed me back to surgery. He managed to intubate my mainstem bronchus, causing a pneumothorax. He didn't figure that out. Well, in recovery I was going down the tubes. I was rushed to MICU. They were bagging me (My poor children saw them bring me out!) Put me on the vent, called in a pulmonologist, who told them to pull the tube back. I stayed on the vent for about 2 days. After that, my vocal cords were paralyzed in the closed position, so I had to have a tracheostomy for about 6 months.
-Diabetes (in an out for that)
-Pneumonia (They thought, I don't know what it was.)
Not to mention that I have horrible allergies. I, probably, missed something, but that the gist of it.
