Starting Over

"Think of yourself as a toddler," the nurse advised. "You will be needing all your childhood immunizations over again. We destroyed your immune system. With your sister's marrow, you are starting over."
The toddler image didn't really set with me until I got sleepy this afternoon. Ran out of gas entirely. Needed more than a power nap. Felt like got to close my eyes can't go on one more instant. Good thing I don't get toddler cranky. Just pulled the covers to my chin and slept. Toddler chubby legs? Looking forward to clamoring the hills and chasing butterflies.
Mom had our baby shoes bronzed. Never thought I would need them. Maybe now.
