Ready for PriDetime: Our Son, the Scholar

Todd is studying to be a doctor.

(prostate cancer cell dividing)

Okay, how cool is this? Our son, Todd, who has been working at the University of Arizona Cancer Center as part of his extracurricular hours for applying to med school in June, just got his name on a review in the Journal of Cellular Physiology. If you click below, on the word "Abstract," you can even take a look! (Apparently, the printed copy comes out later...And you can bet I will be buying one.)

Mini-Reviews

Pretty cool, right? At least, we think it is, even though he assures us he just happened to be in the right place at the right time and was lucky to be included.

(Hey, then we're proud of him for being in the right place at the right time...)

So impressive! Way to BE, Todd!

Heather said...

Congratulations Todd A. Anderson. You are providing a valuable service to men and their prostates everywhere. I am hoping that you will continue to make prostateological history by finding a cure. Not that I have anything to worry about, my prostate is healthy as a horse ... er, horse's. Do horses have prostates? Anyway, I know mine is fine because I urinate like a racehorse several times a night. That's good, right? Or is that bad? Help Todd, I need answers.

Respectfully Submitted,

Matthew D. Anderson (contributer to no studies of any import)

THAT is really cool! I would read it, but I bet I won't understand one word of it! :)

Sue said...

Is it just me, or should another of my sons (he who posts as Heather but signs as Matthew) consider abandoning the field of psychotherapy for a stint at The Comedy Store?

*Note to said son* - How do you feel about euphemisms, Matt? "Elimination of waste product," for example? Or perhaps you might consider the use of one of several popular childish terms. "Piddle," for instance.

Just a thought.

;)

Michelle said...

awesome! though I won't promise to buy the book. ;)

Jill said...

Oh yes, that is so exciting. Nothing like seeing one of your kids in print!

Emili said...

Hi Sue! I love your blog - I can't believe all you do!

I also think being published is a big deal! Props to Todd. :)

jen said...

Like mother, like son! Congratulations. Hope to never need his work (or that Brad will, I should say).

karin said...

Karin

Jess said...

That's quite and accomplishment! I saw a photo that reminded me of proctology (and in no way shape or form your son) you can see for yourself at peopleofwalmart.com

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

This is wonderful. Way to go Todd.

Darlene said...

I hardly need to comment at all on this because you AND Todd know how very very proud we are of him. He is what keeps me going, as you know. I am definitely going to be around when he becomes an official M.D. And, in fact, I'm in no particular hurry because I am going to enjoy every single day until that happy graduation!!!!

Cherie said...

Congratulations to your son - That is super impressive indeed!
It is such hard work to become a Dr. - my hat is off to your hard working and now famous son!

karen said...

How exciting! I'd be floating with pride if I were you. He's got a lot of hard work ahead of him (I am remembering from when my brother was in med school) so these little flashes of glory are what keep you going when the going gets tough. I am proud to almost know him!

Amy said...

That is great! I would be proud of him for just the doctor part, but gtting his name published is just awesome!

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

Pretty Cool is right!! That is so awesome!! I would be so proud too. Being at the right place at the right time is half the battle in life! :) I think it means he's very blessed.

Snarky Belle said...

Very exciting! And yes, "he who posts as Heather but signs as Matthew" is very entertaining.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Wow! How cool is that! Congrats!!

Mumsy said...

WOW you have reason to be proud of your son. Congratulations to Todd! Hugs

Lisa Loo said...

Congrats to Todd and w.o.w. to Heather/Matthew. Way to put a visual out there! Restores my faith in mankind that he is out there playing with peoples minds :0) Your family must never have a dull moment-Sue.

Em said...

that is SO cool!

VK said...

This should be a boon to getting into medical school. Good Luck to him.

Braden said...

That is way cool. I have to think that will be real boost for his career.
