40 years

On May 30, 1969 at 1:24 am I was born...yup...40 years ago..40... 4x10....4 decades...the big 4-0...I don't have a baby pic because I was the second child and not as spoiled as my brother..sniff sniff... But trust me.. I was cuter than him...still am...

Anyhoo.. I was born 6 weeks early. They actually induced my mom because her Rh was negative and well, G was born a few months before that shot thing... So I was 1/2 an ounce shy of 6 lbs 19.5 inches long. I was rushed to ICU where I was put in an incubator thingie. I had 3 blood transfusion the first 3 days of my life.. then after 11 days, I went home and met my big brother who thought I was the most wonderful thing ever!!!

I am thrilled that my parents came up here. James is going to grill and then Sunday my parents are taking us all to Red Lobster..yum...King Crab legs here I come!! I do wish my brother could be here. I miss him and his family so much!!

Ok I am tired... I guess getting old is catching up with me....


Have an awesome day!!!

Hope you all have a great time. I haven't eaten at Red Lobster in ages. You know that didn't last down here.

Happy Birthday!

FYI: My word verification word is "prego," ... fitting for this post.
