What do you want to be when you grow up?
So, I was asking Mason the other day, what do you want to be when you grow up? He looked at me and said, "What do you think?" I was cautious because I don't want to put ideas in his head, but I said, "Well, I think you are really good with math, so maybe a math teacher?" He shook his head. Then I said, "Well, I think you would be really good and really enjoy designing cars. Like where the engine goes, what color, etc." (You can tell I am really "dummying" this down thinking he his 7.) He looked at me crooked and squinted his eyes and said, "Nope, I am going to be a paleontologist." and off he skipped - yes, skipped - there is hope! I was a little dazed and confused as I didn't know what the heck a paleontologist was and the fact that he knew the word. HOLY COW! Not much has happened since last chemo, but I was funny last time in chemo......we agreed that I should get a second dose of dummy drug for a lot of good reasons, but it hit me hard, so I said things like, "Where is Mason?" and "I have been hiking for three days." The nurses were not impressed and Elaine was like, "I am calling Grant!" I was fine and realized that I don't need anymore dummy drugs for several reasons.....see above! UPDATE: Good thing - my platelets went WAY up this last time which is not normal and Hank said was magic (that was before the dummy drugs) which, of course, I rolled my eyes at. I think it is the acupuncture, but that is just me. Neutral thing - I had a scan yesterday which I still don't know results for.....and I don't really care......which is interesting.......odd......but I think okay.....or maybe not......I will figure it out. I will let you know when I do! Happy Thursday, Ang
