Today (10/23) I've noticed that I have pain in my upper left abdomen. Theres no bruise, but when I touch it, theres a painful reaction to it. I didn't think nothing about it honestly. I felt around to see if there was more pain around and there was. My left lower breast had the...

Halloween can be a scary time for some children. Attractions, decorations, costumes, haunted houses, parks and even trick or treating can stir up intense fear. When you have a terrified child on your hands, it can be difficult for them and your entire family to enjoy the popular holiday. Consider taking these few steps, and perhaps you can minimize their concerns before October 31 arrives.

As social media becomes more a part of our lives, there is a growing debate about whether social networks like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are having an effect on our self-image.

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - The New Player

Posted 09-22-2014 at 04:05 AM by RABG (Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery)

In my post of "surgical debrediment" I wrote about the procedure, but this is going to be so much more. The PS will do a significantly larger debrediment, down to the bone again. I will stop calling the procedure a surgical...
