11-20

YOU KNOW YOU’RE THE PARENT OF A KID WITH CANCER WHEN…

    11. Your new bathroom trash can has “Hazardous Waste” written on it (recycled sharps container)
    12. You can maneuver a double pole with six boxes and a kid riding, on a tour of the hospital, and make it back to the room before the low-battery alarm sounds and the kid has to pee
    13. You realize you’ve been home two weeks, and you’re still measuring I’s and O’s
    14. The nurses stop responding to the IV alarm, knowing you’ll fix it anyway
    15. Your child asks what’s for dinner, and you automatically reach for the bag of hyperal
    16. Your 2-year-old knows where all of the medical equipment goes, and how to use it
    17. Your child’s first word is a medical term
    18. You keep a bag packed at all times like your 9 1/2 months pregnant
    19. You can eat with one hand while you hold the barf bucket with the other
    20. Your child’s bedroom looks like a Toys R Us® store
