Ever had to go to hospital?

    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.)

    -Gallbladder removal.

    -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.

    You hang in there, MsMcDucket! You're too sweet to have all these problems!

    Hi Virgochik, I'm sure that you'll have a safe surgery, and I hope that my story didn't scare you! Thanks, for the compliment!

    Tonsils out at 11 - very painful. Could not eat ice cream as promised.
    First pregnancy - C-section due to big ol' boy who wouldn't come out after 5 hours of pushing.
    Gallbladder removal - had my first attack when son was 3 days old but waited till he was a year to have op.
    Second pregnancy - Twins, C-section because baby A was head down but baby B was transverse breech. Also was hospitalized many times due to
    premature labor at 29 weeks. Made it to 36 weeks before water broke.

    Hopefully that's it. I don't understand those who voluntarily undergo surgery for cosmetic reasons. Surgery takes a toll on your body.

    Lets see 2 knee surgeries in 1983, I had 10 sheets of 1 inch plywood fall and hit me in the legs. Appendix surgery in 79' in the army. Had a lymph node removed in 84' from a bee sting, and in 97' my latest surgery damn near killed me was an aneurysm in my brain. Is that enough ?

    I see some of you have been through quite a lot, my only stay at a hospital was to have my tonsils removed when I was a little child, I would not remember it had my parents not told me about it.

    We can see why the promises of the dubs are so seductive they tell ppl that such hospital experiences will be ancient history once a supposed paradise soon arrives on earth. That's the bait because the WTS is not fit to put anyone into a new world should such a thing arrive on this earth.
