I know it's Saturday and not many are reading blogs, but I want to remember this.
Yesterday Dennis and I thought we were on our way to the Walmart in Sanger. It's bigger and cleaner than the one closer to us. But on the way out there (about a 30 minutes from our house) we drove by the hospital I gave birth to Logan in 1979. I've always felt nostalgic about that place. It's very small, and unlike the hospitals around here that I seem to visit often throughout the years, the only memory I have of Sanger hospital is giving birth in it 32 years ago.
I knew it had closed down in 2004, but yesterday as we were driving by I told Dennis I thought I saw the front door open. He wearily said, "I guess this means you want to stop." (We go through a similar conversation whenever we are in Sanger.) As we were getting out of the car I heard him say to himself, "the things you get me into." Poor guy.
"Hey this is my chance. I've been wanting to walk through this place since Logan was born. Can we go in?"
I expected Dennis to say, No, it's not safe, let's just leave.
But surprisingly he said, "Sure go for it."
So here we are in this very old and emptied out building full of desolate hallways.
Quite the 'has been' feeling to it.
Like the kind of dreams I have...you know, going back to the past, but no one is there.
Less than a minute later here comes this worker-looking-man asking what we were needing.
Dennis points towards me and says,
"Her son was born here 32 years ago, and she just wants to look around."
So this worker actually says,
"I was born here too!...in 1969....do you want to see the delivery room?"
Need he ask? YES!
But then the worker stops and says, "Did you hear this place is haunted?"
I backed up a few feet and then I thought...wait a minute,
so what if it's haunted. I still want to see it, so we continued on.
I have many fears, but not of ghosts.
The worker explained how this story was on the news just last week,
about how some say Sanger hospital is "very haunted" so he thought we were there to check that out.
