I would be a very bad blogger if I didn’t write about the things for which I am thankful. I haven’t had time before today because along with my boss, we prepared a full Thanksgiving meal for the students and it was A LOT of work. My kitchen is tiny (although not as small as Eileen’s) so at times it was challenging to find surfaces to put everything on, and I had to cook everything in shifts. But it was all delicious, and for that I am thankful.
What I am really thankful for, however, is that I decided to go to the doctor’s on Wednesday, specifically the dermatologist. I went for a really vain reason. Ever since I moved to Chile, I’ve been getting these white bumps on my face, and I wanted to know what to do about them. While I was there, I also asked the doctor about a mole that I’ve had for a little while that seemed a bit strange to me.
Turns out, I have to get it removed because it might be cancerous.
I’m also thankful that I have really good health insurance that covers the entire procedure except for a co-pay of around $10.000 pesos (approximately US $20.00).
And of course, I’m very thankful for all of the blessings in my life: my supportive family, my friends, my boyfriend, Charlie, going home for Christmas, my health and my happiness.
I know it’s a bit late, but…Happy Thanksgiving!
