At the request of Nic, my Secret Pal 9 hostess, I am posting a random fact, or in my case a group of facts, about myself.
I was 7 weeks premature, and weighed 3 lbs 5 ozs. I stayed in the hospital for 3 months afterwards, and although the doctor told my parents I was "retarded" and should be put in an institution, I have no health problems whatsoever. (My mom immediately changed doctors!) Incidentally, I was a "surprise" baby born into a blended family. My mom and dad were 39 and 37 respectively, and my siblings ranged from 13 to 19 years of age.
In 1971, 39 was considered old for a woman to give birth, especially considering she already had grown children. Now that I'm 35, that doesn't sound so old to me :)
