Spending my Birthday in the Hospital?

Posted on February 25, 2014

A very important birthday of mine is coming up, and I will most likely have to spend it in the hospital. The only other time I have been in the hospital on my birthdays was  my 7th birthday. I also got discharged that day, so it wasn’t too bad, but if I spend this one in my birthday I will be here all day and all night. The other difference is the birthday when I was 7 was in a hospital that was 20 minutes away from my house, so all of my friends and family could come see me, but the hospital is 3 hours away. My birthday is on March 15, and it is February 25 today. The doctors and my family will reevaluate everything in two weeks (14 days) and my birthday is 18 days away. That is when we should know for sure whether or I will get out in time for my special day. I know this post is short, but it is just something that has been on my mind lately and I thought I should keep everyone updated.


If you want to send me a card or something you can find my PO box address on my “Contact Me” page.

Thanks guys! 🙂
