Where Was I–5 Minute Friday

You know that blog hop addiction of mine, it is still going strong.  And I found another one!  Yay!  (I know you’ve been thinking there were not enough blog hops on my blog, I just know it.)

This one is over at The Gypsy Mama.  The rules are you can write anything you want about the weeks’ topic, but you can only write for 5 minutes without censoring or editing yourself.  This could get dangerous!

5 Years Ago

The hubby and I had been married for a little over a year.  I was still pretty sick, when we got married, with the Multiple Sclerosis.  I was in and out of my wheelchair and doing large steroid doses by IV every 3 weeks.  It was keeping me just barely under control. 

I was talking to my neurologist about me not having children, about making that a permanent decision so we made sure not to have any surprises that I was not healthy enough to care for.  I cannot even tell you how much I wanted kids, because I wouldn’t admit it even to myself.  I kept saying over and over I was not healthy enough to have kids; kids deserved a strong healthy mama, not someone like me.  But my wise doctor said no.  He had told me when hubby and I were getting married, “give me two years.”  But I just knew that two years wouldn’t bring anything good.  How could it when I had been so sick for so many years???  What kind of life was this for kids. 

But now that I redo the math, by right now, I was healthy and we were starting our family.  And I was really sick with morning sickness.  I can never tell that doctor how much he means to me.  His hard work, and the work of the Lord, brought me to where I am, a mama of 3!!!!
