Conversation in the car last week while Von and I drove to the hardware store to buy sandpaper and guy things:
Me: Terry at Make-a-Wish called and said they are working on your hot-tub. How does it feel to soon be the owner of a hot tub?
Von: Dad, if I take my medicine and they wash the cancer away and it is all gone, do I still get to keep the hot tub?
Me: Yes, yes, yes!!!
It makes me happy to tears to think that Von is through the roughest part of his treatments and that the generous people at Make-a-Wish granted him a hot tub. It's perfect! Our whole family will get to enjoy this with Von over and over.
It is his hot tub and he is making up the rules. When asked what the first rule of the hot tub is, he says, "You have to wear a swimsuit."
That's a great start.
