'Hospital visit' by Brenda Cook

This is when my gran took me to hospital when I was a little girl. That’s me in the green clothes with a big bow in my hair. I was aged two or three because my mum and dad were working, my gran took me. I saw the nurse and doctor talking and I was afraid they were going to keep in there for good. They told my gran I might not live to be ten and that I wouldn’t get any bigger. I’m 68 now. My gran died when I was ten, but when I was 11 or 12 my sister and brother in law took me back to the hospital to show them how wrong they were.

The doctor and receptionist are also in the picture.
