Five Question Friday 4/1/11

Today is Pops' (my grandpa) birthday! Hooray! So, even though he will never, ever see this post, Happy Birthday Pops!
(at least I hope he doesn't because he would kill me for posting his picture ha!)
And now, it's Five Question Friday time! I missed it so much last week! Mama M. was a little busy, though, taking care of a sick little girl. Glad that Miss Belle is feeling better this week!

1. Have you ever had surgery?
I have had surgery twice. The first time, I had my tonsils removed. The second time, I have a very large baby removed. :) Thank goodness I don't have to do either of those things again.

2. Ever ridden in an ambulance?
When I had my pulmonary embolism in September, they took me from the helicopter to the ER in an ambulance. The ride lasted for about half a block. It took longer for them to load me up and unload me than I was actually in the ambulance.

3. How are you in a medical emergency? Panicked? Calm?
It really depends on what the emergency is and who is involved. I thought I handled things pretty well when I was getting loaded up in the helicopter and shipped to the heart hospital. I've dealt with my kids getting bumps on the head, scrapes, etc and done okay. And I've had students of mine who've had everything from broken arms to seizures in my classroom that I've been able to handle pretty well.
But, the night that Landon had his seizure, I didn't handle that very well. In fact, I pretty much lost it. I think that's allowed, though, when you think you are watching your child die. So scary!

4. Do you have a garden? Flowers or veggies?
We've talked about putting in a big garden this year, but so far it hasn't happened. I think it's going to have to wait one more year. I would love to have some pretty flowers, though. I know for sure we will be planting tulips in the fall, so we'll have some next year.

5. When did you move out of your parents house?
I moved out of my parents' house when I was 18 1/2. Daniel and I got married and moved out of our parents' houses the summer after high school graduation. I've never lived "on my own" and haven't ever had a roommate other than Daniel.

So, are you ready for the weekend? I kind of am, but kind of not. I got spoiled last weekend when the little kids didn't have Tae Kwon Do. We're back to the routine this weekend, which means 8:45 class for Sierra and Landon. Saturday afternoon we are going to have cake for Pops' birthday so that should be fun. Other than that, we'll be spending our days cleaning the house. It desperately needs it! Isn't that what weekends are for?

Oh wow! I would be terrified too, if my child had a seizure!
