I'll never see cotton balls the same way again...

Entertainingly enough, The Boy has figured out what we are doing with the cotton balls on the changing table. You see, the nurses need to carefully monitor his urine, because the chemo drugs can damage his kidney. Yes, we're ignoring the fact that drugs designed to treat kidney cancer can seriously damage the kidneys. Anyway, we pack two or three cotton balls around his thingie to catch urine for the testing. Today, he fished around in the bag while I was changing him. He pulled out a couple of cotton balls, looked at them, and placed them on his thingie.

Very cute and very funny.

And, depressing that he has learned that.

Are we 12? Why call it a "thingie?"

He's so smart.

Also makes me worry about the first time that he has to make a snowman out of cotton balls when he's in preschool. How is THAT going to go...?
