I had a minor procedure yesterday on my back. I’ve been going to a new dermatologist, and he suggested that I get a small cyst taken off my back. It was right in the middle of my shoulder blades….a place I couldn’t really either see or get to.
He thinks it’s nothing, but it’s getting biopsied.
However, it’s meant stitches in my back, which hurt a bit, and antibiotics which generally make me feel a little wurvy.
The main gratitude here is for health care in general. I know the system is deeply flawed and broken. But I am deeply grateful to be one of those who have health care.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
