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