Enjoy Every Sandwich

Enjoy Every SandwichAs those of you who read my blog know, I am a music fanatic.  I listen to all types, English and Spanish.  My operating room is never silent, and I think it helps the patients at Yager Esthetics feel more comfortable when they enter the surgical suite.

Warren Zevon, a musician most famous for “Werewolves of London”, died of cancer.  He knew the end was coming, and that despite his fame and success, he could not stop it.  He decided to write an album, “Enjoy Every Sandwich”, to deal with the situation.

The title implies that we never know when the end is coming, so we should treasure every moment, even eating a sandwich.   This is great advice.

As a board certified plastic surgeon, I know a lot of things about a lot of things.  I eat right, exercise, don’t smoke, rarely drink, and see my own doctor every year.  I realize, however, that today could be my last day on earth.  No one gets a guarantee.

My advice today is to be grateful for the blessings you have, and to not be angry about what you do not.  Tell the people in your love who mean something to you how you feel, and do not stand on pride and resolve your conflicts.

Enjoy every sandwich.
