We have just arrived at CHOP Virtua where Justin attends physical therapy. He will see an orthopedic specialist today to be fitted for a special boot worn at night to stretch his heel cord. The rash on his face is a side effect of methotrexate.
Me: Jus, how do you feel today? Do you feel like this one? How about this one?
It’s sometimes hard for six-year-olds to articulate their feelings. I am showing him emojis. Sad, happy, scared.
Justin: No, none of THOSE. I feel like this. He reaches over and taps the cheeseburger.
This kid. That’s right, baby, hold on to that sense of humor for dear life. Grace be with you, my friends.
