Logan Hospital where Dianna was born and I had my tonsils out

The hospital in Logan which was across from the temple but was closed and knocked down, and then turned into a parking lot for the temple. My younger sister, Dianna, was born here April 9, 1966.  This was a Saturday, and we were all at the Hyrum Easter Egg-Hunt when we found out about the new baby.  We weren't allowed to go in but looked through the window. 
My next experience here was getting my tonsils out.  This was third grade.  It was shortly after Christmas.  I remember counting back from 100.  Then the next thing I remember my folks were waking me up in the car.  I'm sure that is not how it was, but that is how I remember it.  I did get to miss some school, even though the operation was during Christmas break.  I had a sore throat every morning for about a week into school.  The sore throat would go away late morning, and I played with Christmas toys the rest of the day. 
I had other experiences here--getting a cast off after breaking my arm in Soda Springs playing baseball, eighteen stitches in my forehead, getting a drain out of my foot, which I earned on the Green River, and a few other minor injuries.  Our family doctor was Dr. Burgess, and he delivered Dianna, and chopped out my tonsils.
