    Good Information
    I know you and I recently discussed this, Blake...and it was interesting to know. My original onc had misinformed me, or at least that's the way that he saw it.

    At any rate, it's good information to have and thanks for posting.

    Thank you Blake! You must have picked up on my thoughts... Like, Blake or someone that is not tech challenged like myself will 'fix' it.

    Hope you are feeling better today and even better tomorrow.
