Do they still make Fizzies? Cause that would be cool. Especially if it was chocolate flavored and you had Betadine on your. The contrasting brown colors would be awesome.

I'm hoping they find something fatal, like a tumor but they would have seen that on the ultrasound
so no luck with that happening. I just get to feel like I'm dying. I don't get the real thang. Typical.

 

 
I hope they don't find anything bad during the biopsy. I went through liver problems last year when my liver went from healthy to fried during the 6 months between ultrasounds. Turns out I am allergic to Prilosec and it was seriously damaging my liver. After stopping using it my liver took nearly a year to heal.

Tobacco users pay $100 Billion annually in direct taxes on tobacco and not one penny goes to help the addicted.  Smokers pay higher health insurance rates, too.  Totally unjust and unfair.

Its time this changes.

Thanks, I'll be here.  

Substituting left handers for right handers doesn't work anymore.  It did once.

Done the Chantix and Welbutrin.  The Welbutrin was working for me, then the generic came out during the process and something critical was left out in the generic that was working for the smoking.  The wife tried Welbutrin several years ago to treat her PTSD and it made her go dark, very dark.  Now its listed as one of her allergies.  She has quit since her last back surgery which will be one year this August.  I rode her butt.  Her surgeon told us the deal about smoking and the bones.  Its the nicotine that causes the bones to break down.  It clicked when he said no smoking, no patches, no gum.  We had an enlightening conversation on the subject.

The wife had some of this tissue wrapped around her spinal fusion with hopes of adding support, cushioning and durability to the procedure.

This is in our own Beanie's bailiwick IIRC ...

My liver enzyme tests and latest ultrasound came back normal finally. So it took 9 months for my liver to recover from the damage done by me being allergic to Prilosec. What fun. So I am now having a glass of wine, the first alcohol since last Sept to celebrate. Even the fatty liver caused by the Prilosec is gone and fatty liver usually doesn't go away.

My Jaw still hurts a bit. Its from the tannic acids in the red wine. I lost my resistance to it from not drinking it in over 7 months. This has happened before after a reprise from red wine.

That is great news Dave.  I have a concern maybe some medical person can help we with.  I have never had rubella, and with the news of the measles outbreak on both coasts, I wonder if I should get vaccinated?
