I’m thankful for…

…all the usual suspects — loving family, great and true friends, a happy home, abundant sunshine, a fridge full of good things to drink.

But today I’m extra thankful for an endocrinologist who emails her newest, worried patient after the close of business the day before Thanksgiving to say, “I know you’re awaiting your biopsy results, and I know you don’t want to have to wait out the holiday weekend.”

That, my friends, is quality health care.

And the result from the needle IN MY NECK is good. Very good. The biopsy is negative.

I’m thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.
