I accidentally deleted the 30 hours of photographs that my father took during my delivery. I still had the images of the c-section, but the record of the actual labor? I must have deleted them in the process of backing up my laptop to my desktop to my external book drive. Clearly, I'm not as savvy as I'd like.
Luckily, I am a sentimental fool and had saved the cd with the pics on it that he gave me in the hospital in a memory box along with Monito's footprint card, the little plastic ankle ID bracelet tag they had on him, and the clip that clamped off his umbilical cord.
Thank god. I was in tears when I figured out that they weren't on any computer, and spent a good hour trying to figure out if I could restore them before checking the memory box. I am so relieved.
