Drove to Sudbury on Wednesday after work in white-out conditions but my husband had rented a Yukon with 4-wheel drive so I felt quite safe. And, the best part about the Yukon was the heated seats. Real nice. Left here around 5 p.m. and got to... Read more

I called my rheumatologist yesterday about this pain I'm having and he booked me for a echocardiogram this morning at 8 a.m. because he thought it sounded like pericarditis (inflammation of the fibrous sac surrounding the heart). So, I wen... Read more
