Slower Than I Would Like, But Healing

Saturday, March 28, 2015      5 comments

My healing is slower than I would like. I don't remember, from last year's radio frequency ablation on my head, that I felt this bad for this long. Perhaps my memory is a bit off due to the fact that I also had a similar procedure on my lower ... Read more
