My prettiest dress ever, a neat ponytail,
and a party to attend on a sunny day.
Richmond, California, 1959.
All too soon after...
...As a patient in Alta Bates Hospital (Berkeley, California),
with a case of the croup. After a scary ride to the hospital it was
pretty lonely inside my oxygen tent the first night, and I was
much happier when my parents came back to visit the next day.
Of course, new toys didn't hurt, either.
