|The start of a chemo cap while waiting|
at a wrestling match, February 2014.
"He does??" the boy asked.
"Yes," I replied, "In fact, he just got one last week when he hurt his collar bone."
"Did it hurt," the boy asked.
"Yes. My boy told me it hurt so I brought him to the hospital so the Doctor could look at it and they gave him the souvenir bracelet, just like yours."
The boy turned to his dad, held up his wrist and said, "Dad! Look! I got a souvenir!" His dad smiled at me and mouthed "Thank you."
"What are you making," the boy asked me.
"I'm making a hat that I will give to someone who is very sick. It's what I do when I'm waiting," I replied. "Today I'm waiting for my dad. They gave him a souvenir bracelet too."
"Ohhh, you're a very nice lady!" the boy exclaimed.
His dad told me his son had hurt himself on a trampoline and has been complaining about his "owwie" for a little while so he thought it best to be checked out. "Dad," asked his son, "can I learn how to make a hat? His dad said yes, that he could ask a relation to teach him.
At that point the nurse called me, stating I could go see my father. As I gathered up my things the boy said, "Goodbye nice lady. I'll take good care of my souvenir!" :)
Note: My father turned out to be (thankfully!) OK.
