Hashimoto's & AutoImmune Disorder

Posted 06-27-2012 at 06:28 AM by Apache Kristy

I found that really moist Banana Bread worked really good and was very tasty, definatly a change! lol The scabs from my re-cauterizing are still black-ish, havent turned cream still. But its alright, give it time i think. when i went in for the re-cauterizing, the surgeon took all of the loose and old scabbing...
