Document Your Life #122 – Calling in Sick

I’ve barely come back before I have to call in sick. Anders is sick too and already went to the doctor’s yesterday.

I woke up with a sore throat and swollen tonsils and immediately thought “here we go, again”. It seems that every time I get sick now (which fortunately doesn’t happen very often), my tonsils swell up and get this white stuff on them.


Last time I went to the doctor’s, he said that if my tonsils continue to cause problems then I should consider having them removed.

Removed!? As in …removed!?

Oh, no. No, no, no….no. I can’t bare the thought of having surgery (no matter how small and simple) and especially not in the Dominican Republic. Sorry, but I just don’t have much faith when it comes to doctors in the Dominican Republic. My doctor here is all right (he’s not Dominican either), but still…


I don’t think so.

I’m on my way to see the doctor now and to get…some medicine.
