Revision Surgery Update 10/13

Not a great deal to say. I went to see the surgeon about a week ago. Everything way healing normally. I’ve passed that early stage of aches and pains, and I can now go back to things like ibuprofen or naproxen for my odd attacks of joint pain. I had some minor feedback from the…… Continue reading Revision Surgery Update 10/13

So you want to be a woman

It is not hard to see why virtually all Democratic senators delivered a big thumbs down to one of the singularly most politically stupid,…… Continue reading Common Cause
