Rebecca's Story

someone they could always count on. I always wanted to be a x-ray tech when I grew up. My family and friends thought that was a good idea. As it turns out, they were partially wrong. I relax by reading a good book. If I'm going to work somewhere, I need to have friends, time , and understanding to be able to deal with the day-to-day. My mom is my hero. She had polio as a small child and had to have major back surgery when she was in her 50's that left her almost crippled until she had the surgery revised and spent 23 hours in surgery. She has had breast cancer and now must use a rolling walker to get around, but she still goes to all of her grandchildren's sporting events and volunteers at the local hospital where she lives. She never complains and she never gives up. I lived in Springfield, MO. when I was in x-ray school, got married and moved to New Orleans. Moved to Oswego, KS for an x-ray job and then moved back to Miami when my mom needed to move away from my dad's place. The one person from my past who I'd most like to see again is Marcia Hines, because we were such good friends. I expected to grow old with my husband and be able to do all the things my children would want, but their dad became disabled at 43 and I lost my job at the hospital at 45. If I could improve my home, I'd remodel kitchen and add on a patio. My dream home would be all one level. I've learned that children notice everything and can amaze you every day. I wish I could see Mrs. Shipley again, she was the world's best algebra teacher and I learned to always see things through. If I won $100 million, I'd give 20% of it to the ch...Expand for more
urch, then spend the rest on bills, my children and travel. To be truly happy I would be with my family in a new home, watching movies, and spending time together. My current age is 47. When I was 12, I thought that people my age now would be old. I was so completely wrong. I've been an x-ray tech, and a mammographer. I have run a photo lab and a cosmetic counter, and now am in charge of inventory. I might want to become a manager or go back to school and become a teacher. My best friend would tell you I'm happy, but people who don't know me very well would probably describe me as cheerful. I share my home with 1 husband, 3 children, 3 dogs , and 2 cats, which I find crowded sometimes. I won second place in the bowler of the year tournnament. I handle my finances better. In 10 years, I hope to be working for Walgreens. I'm going to get there by doing my job better than anyone else could. My oldest true friend is Becky A. from New Orleans. We went to X-ray school together and we have remained good friends through her divorces, my cancer, and Hurricane Katrina. The one thing that would probably surpise everyone at my reunion is that I had cancer and a healthy pregnancy all at the same time. My daughter is my truly miracle child. My first job was at Eastwood Nursing Home, where I got paid 3.45/hr to bath and cloth elsderly people.. What I remember most about it is how I came to love most of my patients. When I was growing up I used to go to my cousin's house for a week in the summers. One night we had a babysitter and her boyfriend came over, he was playing with us and he tickled me so much that I threw up.
