Default Need advice for tomorrows Brew Day

Just this once, could someone plug in my water profile and make a suggestion on additions. I think I have it right but would really appreciate another opinion as this will be my first water adjustment.
I'm doing an American Wheat (malty). I can post the recipe if needed.
My Profile:
Ca - 19.2
Mg - 16.5
Na - 23.2
SO4 - 40.6
Cl - 12.4
HCO3 - 52.1

6 gals mash & 5.5 gals sparge (fly)

I'm thinking a mash water addition of 2 grams Gypsum & 5 grams Calcium Chloride.

Addition to the boil would be almost the same (not sure my scale will do this so I may have to round up) 1.8 grams Gypsum & 4.6 grams Calc. Chloride.

Am I in the ballpark?

yeah you should adjust your mash and sparge water not the wort.
