Hudson's Story

The things we see in life

Written by Hudson, 2 October 2015  | 

Have you ever heard news that could change your life? If you have you know what I'm talking about, you know the experience where all these thoughts suddenly rush through your head, and how that one piece of information can affect your future. Well, in 2010 I was told that my heart had a little problem. Apparently I had two main veins that crossed over in my heart. Now, a year earlier I had a party and during that party I had a toothache. When I went to get the tooth taken out the dentist told me that my oxygen levels were low. so we went and had it looked at, the doctor told me that I needed an operation on my heart, open heart surgery. I know this is nothing special, you know with all these amazing survival stories I've read, but I found it scary because I was only 6 or 7. So for the next month or so I was having tests done which wasn't the best experience for me but still. Then the day came for me to have my operation, and I was so scared. When they lay me down on the operation table and put that mask on me it freaked me out, but that feeling soon disappeared after the laughing gas hit me. When I woke up I was pretty drowsy. My dad felt really sorry for me so he went out and bought me a Nintendo DS (it was that little thing that started my passion for video games) I didn't even react I was so drowsy! I can't remember much after that, one of the only things I can remember are the awful bacon and ice-cream for breakfast. So yeah, I don't really have much of an exciting story, but, I thought you guys would like to know. Over all, I don't really have a moral to this story. I guess I should just say that...
