Illness and Injury - 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week #11

This is a weekly challenge from GeneaBloggers called 52 weeks of personal genealogy history.

Week 11: Illness and Injury. Describe your childhood illnesses or injuries. Who took care of you? Did you recuperate in your own bed, on the couch in front of the television, or somewhere else?

I had some of the normal childhood illnesses like chicken pox, colds, and the flu. The worst was when I had bronchitis that seemed to hang on for a few weeks. My Mom was the one that took care of me and I usually recuperated in my own bed until I felt better. My worst injury was one that required a few stitches to my knee after I fell and hit a sharp edge of a concrete slab behind a friend's house. There weren't many specialists in the small town I grew up in, so my Dad used to take me to an allergist that was about an hour away. My family was very fortunate and there were no major illnesses or injuries while I was growing up.
