I have hospitalized about 8 times as long as i live. % of them i got operation. Got my appendix cut off, 2 C-section when i gave birth ( 2 of my daughters too big for normal procedures ), the fourth times to get rid of stones in my gold bladder and the last one they finally get rid of my gold bladder. My husband said the doctor should just put zipper on my body LOL so easier to remove anything that need to be removed next time. How about you? Wanna share it with me?

I am not sure how many times I was hospitalized I will count at the end. LOL. I was first hospitalized when I had my tonsils out as a young kid. Then I was hospitalized because I had surgery on my feet, I had warts removed. After that I was hospitalized for the birth of my daughter. Then for the birth of my son and a tubal was done at this time. I was then hospitalized for six days when I had my heart attack. The week after that I was hospitalized again because my husband thought I was having another one. So that makes what? 6 times so far that come to the top of my head probably more just can't remember them right now.

Hahaha I don't like flowers so I could do without them but love my friends coming to visit. When I was in the hospital for my heart attack my husband bought me an angel playing the harp because he knew better than bring me flowers!

I always break it ...love spicy food too much and you know how miserable hospital food. couple times my brother or my husband bring food from outside cause i'm so crave for it!

I have been hospitalized 5 times. The first time was when I got a 104 degree temp when I was pregnant with my first son. I had to be put in a bed and stapped with a contraction belt to see if I was going into labor early. The other 4 times were over my illness, Bipolar. I have a bad case of bipolar due to many traumatic events in my life. I honestly went CRAZY during these times. No one could control me, not even myself. I had to be hospitalized so I wouldn't harm myself. I remember, I couldn't even have my blowdryer with me because they thought I would strangle myself with the cord! These were very bad times in my life. Fortunetelly I am doing much better.
