Throwback Thursday: ‘Triplets share the joys of tonsillectomy’ April 17, 1980

By Kristy Bleizeffer Apr 24, 2014

When you have triplets, everything happens in multiples of three – even tonsillectomies.

We love this little gem from the April 17, 1980, Casper Star-Tribune showing Erin, Jay and Alex Stewart recovering from the procedure at Wyoming Medical Center.  Just one question: Where are the smiles?

Wyoming Medical Center opened on Nov. 1, 1911, as the Casper Branch of Wyoming General Hospital. We have a long and rich history in Natrona County. #ThrowbackThursday is a weekly series celebrating this history with old photos, newspaper clippings and other not-yet-forgotten memorabilia. Special thanks to the Casper College Western History Center which archives the vast Wyoming Medical Center collection and from which most of these posts derive.

If you recognize anyone from our #ThrowbackThursday posts or have more to add to the stories, please post a comment.
