But , they forgot to mention, or I wasn't listening, that even though you were only in the sun years ago, any day it can come back and bite you.
Therefore I was not that surprised today when I was told that yes, that little spot on my leg is cancer and I have to have surgery.
So this is my Public Service announcement.. soon it will be summer , use sun block .. don't end up like I will .. an old lady with these little tiny white scars zig zagging all over me.
( this has not happened yet but I have these visions)..
Now about the hospital. They Do Things Differently Here.
At first I was a bit put off by the way they do things, but now, I am appreciating everything much more. You go to the Hospital ( you can go to a private doctor but you will end up being sent to the hospital anyway for the tests) and you see a private doctor in a private office. If you need any tests etc, it is all there.. a huge , modern, clean, new hospital where so far, all the doctors we have seen, speak English.
Now for the upside .. when was the last time you saw a doctor who kissed you hello and good-bye ?
My case is closed.
So in March, I will have a little Trip Report .. I will let you know what the Chief of Surgery looks like, if it is true that they all think they are Gods ( I was just told this today by a doctor ... this person obviously has not worked in a US Hospital )
Any surgeons reading this, I don't mean you !
Any surgeons wives reading this, you know what I mean .
I am wondering if this sort of thing requires a new wardrobe.. you know, something to make up for the fact that I will have a possibly 1 inch scar on my leg. What !
