I have three prominent scars, maybe more...

-the one on my tummy that looks like a tummy-tuck or Cesarian- I lie and tell people it's the first
-the one on my forearm that looks like I got cut by a knife (sorta did, don't talk about that)
-the one from my butt crack to the middle of my back up the center, from surgery

the others are minor so people can't tell or don't know. People always ask me about the one on my arm, though. I guess they think I got in a fight.

Before I reached 4 years old I had 20 procedures done, mainly on my brain, the majority of which were life saving.

In fact my parents were told to pray that I die as the quality of my life would be so poor.

They were wrong coz I'm having a blast.

It's a miracle that I'm here at all.


Oh, its so refreshing to hear that you weathered it... Hugs n kisses to you

I got lucky I guess, Janie.


Whoever told your parents that were idiots. They should have never passed it on...

I have a surgical scar at the wrist of my left hand from a fall I took almost 15 years ago. Fortunately, I'm right handed, so I lucked out. Unfortunately, the timing couldn't have been worse. It happened exactly three weeks after my family buried my grandfather and one week after my 22nd birthday.

Yup, luck is fickle.
