2 years ago to date I almost didn't make it out of my 3rd surgery. I wanted to post a video of the trauma tbh but this moment in time, literally 6 hours before surgery (16 innings , drop her off at work 1am🤦🏻♀️ follow that with a 2 hour drive to La Jolla to check right in to the hospital) with my daughter and her friend, cheering on our team, listen to Vin Scully calling the game...I guess I could have died and this would have been my last moment! 💁🏻 Children, please don't go thru life waiting for it to happen... #preop#postop#surgery3#dodgers#vinscully#slowmotion#bunnylife 😢 This was the our 1st time that we had a Beer 🍻 together 🤗 @aaliyayah #priceless#baseball#baseballgame#behindtheplate#homeplate#baseballrainorshine
