Going through the box of things that are not photos, but will be used in my scrapbooking, I ran across this x-ray. At the time it was very important. My daughter was born with a birth defect and we spent a lot of time at Riley Children's Hospital in Indy. They always worked hard to make kids ok with a hospital stay. We've been through magicians, clowns and one birthday party (very lucky only one was spent there). We were there for the Pan Am games and a visit from the Disney people. At the time it didn't seem so important, but looking back it takes on a new identity. It was fun in the middle of pain.
Over the years we met many children that are no longer, many wonderful families and a hospital that treats the whole child and family as one. And that is a good thing.
Well, in July of 1987 we had to make a middle of the night run to the ER at Riley. All I remember is how tired we were and how scared. She needed an x-ray so we headed for the dungeon and what did we find? Emptiness. Quiet. Very unusual, I can tell you. Shani had her Cabbage Patch with her as always. It was blond and female but I can't remember it's name. After my daughters x-ray, the X-ray tech said the doll needed one too. We found out what goes on in a blond's head. It's official, and I have proof.
Family History is not all serious business........
P.S. Don't tell anyone I was blond and so was my daughter.......Shhhhhhh
