Healthy Traveler

Part of the preparation for the trip is getting some final check-ups to make sure that I don't have any health problems waiting to ambush me in the middle of Chile. Here's the scoop:

  1. Doctor's check-up. I got another tonsil infection, so my doctor sent me to an ear, nose, and throat specialist. Since I've had 4 infections this year, the ENT said that I could either bring a few series of antibiotics with me on the trip, or I could just get a tonsillectomy. He recommended the surgery, and I agreed. Soon, my mouth will be bigger.
  2. Dentist's check-up. I went to "In-Style Dental" today, and had a very pleasant check-up. The waiting room was nice and clean, and it smelled like a normal room, instead of a sanitized dental office. The staff was very friendly and thorough, and the space itself was pretty high-tech. They had an integrated network that was patched into a small tv monitor attached to my chair. So, they showed me my x-rays and pictures of my SIX (?!) cavities on a shiny LCD screen. Needless to say, I have an appointment to go back on Monday.

Geez dude, take better care of your teeth. Stop drinking so much Coke and eating so many Zours. Drink more milk.
